Care for Friends are currently looking to recruit a team leader for our Monday and Thursday food service, to cover periodically throughout 2018.

Every Monday, Thursday and Saturday morning, Care for Friends serves a healthy, delicious meal to up to 100 homeless people. We pride ourselves on serving high quality food, and to provide an enjoyable experience for both our guests and our volunteers.

The role of team leader takes charge of the food service on the day. We start preparing a hot meal at 9am, with a group of volunteers, and serve the food to our guests at 12pm. This is a fun, safe environment, and we are funded by donors and grants, with no government assistance. The team leader will manage the volunteers on the day, of which there are usually up to ten.

The team leader must have previous experience of working in food service, and ideally of leading teams. You must be available to make a regular commitment on Mondays from mid January to mid April 2018, and ideally be food sanitation trained. For interested applicants, there will definitely be the opportunity to volunteer at Care for Friends food service, before they take on the responsibility of team leadership.

This is a rewarding role to work in, both volunteers and guests enjoy coming to food service at Care for Friends. Your role will make a positive impact on the local community, and help the good work of Care for Friends to continue.
