Thank you for showing an interest in working for Emmaus Norfolk & Waveney. We are looking for an experienced Café/Catering Manager to join our team.
The Café Manager will be responsible for the reopening of the small café at our Ditchingham site as well as overseeing all catering within our community. This will involve working with the Director to develop a new menu for the café as well as managing the daily meals for companions (residents) and staff which are cooked by companions as part of our daily work rota.
We are looking to recruit a person who is passionate about food, has experience of running a café, restaurant or food initiative and the ability to work with people from a range of backgrounds.
We need someone who can hit the ground running and would relish the opportunity to develop and grow food initiatives at our Ditchingham site. You will be supported by the Director who was a Head chef for over 15 years and Eamon a resident companion who was also a Head chef.
You will also be working alongside companions (residents) who will be your workforce and colleagues.
You will need to be a competent cake maker as this will form a large part of the food offer. To support this you will be sent to train for one week at one of the Director’s previous services. You will also need the skills and experience to run all aspects of the Café business with support from the wider Emmaus Norfolk and Waveney team.
If you care about community, have the ambition to bring your own flair to a new venture and would like to support those who were formally homeless then we would love to hear from you.
This role could suit someone who is happy to run the Café and general catering but could also offer further role development opportunities to someone who would like to oversee all aspects of our catering as it grows over the next two years.
Emmaus Norfolk & Waveney is a unique charity and this is a unique role. We would urge you to learn more about Emmaus both in the UK and internationally before applying.
