If you have catering experience – we would like to talk to you, but that is not essential.

We are seeking volunteers to generally lend a hand, welcome people or assist in the new Brew and Natter Community Café in Rayleigh.  The café will be open every Friday from 9 am – 1 pm.  This opportunity will be a great chance to meet new people and develop your skills and confidence in a friendly and safe environment.

• Ideally volunteering for one four hour session, weekly or every other week on a rota basis.  (9.30 am - 1.30 pm)

• Welcoming people to Brew and Natter.

• Assisting in the café; taking orders, preparing food and drinks, serving food, clearing tables and loading the dish washer. 

• Possibly dealing with orders and payments in the café.

• Generally keeping the café area clean and tidy, and assisting with the daily set-up and end of session tidy-up, are important tasks too.

All volunteers will receive relevant training for this community initiative, but any previous experience would be helpful.

Skills

Enthusiasm and a smile are essential in this volunteer role, as well as a willingness to learn and be part of a friendly and professional team of volunteers.

In return you will receive full training; which may include a Level 2, Food Hygiene Certificate or attendance at another relevant training course., but any previous experience would be helpful.

All volunteers must follow strict food hygiene and café procedures and it is also necessary to be appropriately dressed and wear sensible shoes in this role.
