Community Café Volunteers

  • VO78873


Description

Tillydrone Community Campus is a new £6million facility that opened in late August 2019. The facility has many opportunities for the community to engage with in developing it as centre that Tillydrone can be proud of. This can be in participating or organising groups / activities, accessing the library, Food Store or using the Café.

We are looking for volunteers to assist the cook in charge of the café. This will involve; food prep, customer care, serving, operating a till and coffee machine, clearing tables and helping wipe down the kitchen at the end. Whilst volunteering you will be directed by the cook on charge with myself and a colleague having overall responsibility for the volunteers in the Campus.

The interaction between those coming into the Campus and the Café cannot be overstated as this is one of the first interactions, they will have on entering the building. It is an opportunity to present the Campus in a positive welcoming light.

We offer an induction, regular meetings (to assist in developing the opportunity and provision) and all the training that you might need for the opportunity to be fulfilling for you.

A fantastic opportunity to help at the Tillydrone Community Campus. All help is greatly appreciated. For more information please contact Graham Donald, Community Development Worker at E Mail: GrDonald@aberdeencity.gov.uk or telephone: 01224 522192 / 07917 305803.
