Cause Areas


Sat Oct 01, 2016 - Sat Sep 30, 2017


Phoenix Cafe and Bakery1 Ploshtad Bdinsti3700Vidin, BG


We need someone who can advice us regarding the art of food retail and how to operate more effectively. Our volunteer will assess what we are doing now and advise the team how to improve and create more opportunities to increase customer flow and income. Phoenix Cafe and Bakery is the child of the charity Phoenix Inspire. Phoenix Cafe and Bakery is a social enterprise with the express desire of training and developing disadvantaged adults in the arts of bakery, patisserie and customer service with the intention that they progress into employment and a meaningful life thereafter. Feedback from customers and supporters applaud the concept and our products but we need more customers and income to firmly establish sustainability. We lack true retail knowledge and experience.

Skills Required:

Knowledge of food retail environment very important - even better if it is with a pastry / baker bias
Advertising and promotions
Design and display
Customer relations

Application Instructions:

Please send an email of introduction along with a summary of experience and a photograph to mick@phoenix-inspirebg.org
