Job Activities

and leading the café team each day.

  1. Managing the Café

  2. Looking after our Volunteers
    • Volunteering is a wonderful way to meet new people, learn new skills, give back to the community and to boost confidence. We have a pool of around 20 volunteers who do much of what is needed to run the café each day along with the Cook. They take customer orders, prepare food, serve customers and wash dishes etc. We have some volunteers whose role is to get to know our customers and offer a listening ear if needed.
    • The Café Manger organises the volunteer workforce. They meet with people who might want to volunteer in the café and find suitable slots for volunteers to work with the rest of the team. Mentoring and training are important parts of this role. There is natural turnover of the volunteer workforce and we are always on the lookout for new volunteers.
  3. Leading the day’s team
    • The Café Manager leads the team in a short prayer time around 9.45 each morning. This is also a time when the team agrees roles for that day and any addresses any last-minute operational issues such as a volunteer being unexpectedly absent.
