Coffee Shop volunteer

← Back to search results

We are looking for volunteers to join our team as our opening hours extend due to demand.  The role involves all aspects of food and drink preparation, serving customers, clearing away and washing up.  The successful candidate will be encouraged to become involved with all aspects of the running of our Pay As You Feel community café.

Full training will be provided and you will appreciate the outreach aspects of the coffee shop and the community we serve as well as learning basic barista skills and food preparation requirements.  The opportunity to achieve your Level 3 Food Hygiene and Food Handling certificates is available after a probationary period.

The successful candidates will  be committed to maintaining our high standards of food hygiene and customer service, and will have a polite and courteous manner.  Good levels of communication within the team, to ensure the smooth operation of each day is essential.  Experience in catering is desired but not necessary, a desire to provide an excellent customer experience and be a valued team member will be preferable to relevant experience.
