Staff of the Week: Cevahir Barut

You probably already know Cevahir, he started working at betahaus last September and he is the bar manager of our café. You can recognise him because he always wear a mütze. Thanks to him we can enjoy the weekly event betabreakfast and he is also an important member of the events team.

He moved to Berlin from Bielefeld to attend university - majoring in hospitality. During those two years he was gaining a lot of experience as a bartender in many locations in Berlin. After finishing university he decided to have a life experience and improve his english; therefore, he moved to Australia - in the east coast, for one year. He said that it was one of the most important experience of his life. After moving back to Berlin, he started working in casual jobs until he became a member of our team at betahaus last September.

Why did you decide to work at betahaus?

For my experience so far, I really enjoy working at betahaus, especially because of the people around me. Everyone in betahaus, from our team to all the members, is very open minded, and relax. In addition, most of the people here have an international background, whom I enjoy talking with.

What are your main responsibility at betahaus?

At betahaus, we try to help each other as much as we can, at the end, this is the idea behind the haus. However, my main responsibility is barmanager, which I enjoy the most. In addition, since we have a events department, I help Peer in organizing all the upfront decisions for each event.

What are the main challenges that you faced so far?

Working as a barmanager and in the event team makes my day very busy. This is not a real challenge, but when it comes to organize events in the cafe, and events with the event team, it might become one. Only with a very clear mental organization you are able to overcome this problem. Regarding only my bar-related job, of course sometimes you will find people complaining, but I try to take the best out of it in order to improve our processes and offerings.

What are your future goals?

I really like working at betahaus, and my future goal is try to promote the café as much as possible and consequently betahaus’ coworking and events departments.
