Job Description

Food Bank Supervisor (Voluntary)

With demand rocketing at the Food Bank, we are looking for experienced volunteers to supervise Food Bank sessions on Wednesdays and Sundays between 11:30am and 3:30pm.

As Food Bank Supervisor, you will need to be confident in leading the team and supporting volunteers to provide an effective and compassionate service to the most vulnerable in the community. You will have a good grasp of key policies and procedures (training provided) and have the tact and diplomacy to mediate in sticky situations.

We kindly request either a weekly commitment for 6 months OR a fortnightly commitment for 12 months. You should also be able to attend volunteer meetings and training days on Saturdays every 2 months.

Deadline for Applications: Friday 25 May 2018 at 5:00pm

To apply for this role, please submit a CV, Covering Letter (no more than 200 words) and Equal Opportunities Form (available here) by email to admin@sufra-nwlondon.org.uk.

Community Kitchen Front-of-House Supervisor (Voluntary)

We’ve all experienced lousy service at a restaurant and just because our Community Kitchen guests are usually the homeless, disabled and infirm – as well as low-income families – we don’t expect to provide them with anything less than a first-class dining experience.

We’re looking for a friendly host to supervise the Community Kitchen on Friday evenings from 6pm to 9pm.

You must be able to smile and make all our guests feel special. In the midst of a busy service you will allocate seats for incoming guests, coordinate food service and support volunteers to meet the demand of our hungry guests. You will also need to intervene with the occasional difficult guest who doesn’t quite understand that the “no takeaways” rule applies to everyone.

We kindly request either a weekly commitment for 6 months OR a fortnightly commitment for 12 months. You should also be able to attend volunteer meetings and training days on Saturdays every 2 months.

Deadline for Applications: Friday 25 May 2018 at 5:00pm

To apply for this role, please submit a CV, Covering Letter (no more than 200 words) and Equal Opportunities Form (available here) by email to admin@sufra-nwlondon.org.uk.
