Catering Assistant

  • VO70887


Description

The Gate Charity is a voluntary led organisation which was set up to serve the needs of the community by offering practical help for positive change. Our aim is to support the most vulnerable in Clackmannanshire and develop our projects and services in response to the needs of our community.

The Gate Charity has recently introduced a new catering service to generate much needed funds to operate our project. For example, we provide catering for external organisation’s AGM’s, Project Launches and/or for small or large events such as fun days.

We are looking to recruit volunteers to assist with this project. Volunteers will undertake general duties which would include the preparation and serving of food for all catered events. No previous experience or qualifications are required. Full training will be provided.

This role is a great opportunity to learn new skills, gain valuable work experience and to socially interact within the community.

Please Note: Most catering contracts can occur out with business hours, sometimes in the evenings and/or at the weekends, although we sometimes receive requests to cater for functions during the week within or out with our premises.

To carry out this role, you should have:

• Basic cooking skills
• A non-judgemental approach to people.
• Basic literacy and good communication skills.
• The desire and ability to take part in a Food Hygiene Training
