Compensation: £8.75-£10/hour depending on experience
Paid Part-time Fixed term / contract
We have exciting opportunities to get involved with the development of our new projects - The Sidwell Street Bakehouse and Cookery School, as well as our established community café. We are looking for a part-time assistant (potential to increase to full-time position in the future) to work across the new real bread Bakery and Café. We are currently recruiting for someone with a particular focus on the Bakery, however the ideal candidate will be flexible to work across both areas. We are also interested to hear from freelance cookery tutors who would like to be involved with the Cookery School, as well as anyone who would like to volunteer with our community food focused projects.
St Sidwell's Centre is a diverse and vibrant community centre in the heart of Exeter. We offer volunteering and work-experience placements, run a community cafe, hire rooms to local organisations, grow veg, compost food waste - and lots more. We have a small staff team, and lots of committed volunteers. You can find out more about our work on our website: www.stsidwells.org.uk
Helping in our kitchen and cafe has always been the most popular choice for our volunteers. Over the past couple of years we have been piloting a micro-bakery, as well as a community cookery school. Thanks to funding from Power to Change, we are now in a position to develop and scale up these projects, so we can provide training and work-experience opportunities to more people, and bring accessible, high-quality cookery classes to the community, as well as developing sustainable income streams for the centre. From April we will be converting an office into a small but dedicated bakery space.
The bakery and cafe assistant will work with the Bakery Project Manager and Café Manager in supporting the smooth operation and development of The Sidwell Street Bakehouse and Sid's Café. The role will also involve supervising and supporting individuals who will be on volunteer placements at St Sidwell's Centre.We are looking for flexible individuals whose focus will be the success of The Sidwell Street Bakehouse and Sid's Café.
