Looking for a new job working for a great charity?
‘Home’ is a registered charity and community space, with a lovely little café at the heart of it which opened in March 2015. We’re located in the centre of Didsbury village in South Manchester, in the entrance space of Emmanuel Church. Our café is open five days a week (10 – 5) and serves a full menu of fresh, home-made food and barista coffees and specialty teas. Other than the core Home staff-team the café is run by volunteers – this is key to our vision and ethos, and we currently have around 30 volunteers involved in some way.
Home runs a wide range of events and activities and is a well-established community space for groups as varied as a Dementia Café, health and wellbeing sessions, Stories and Song and mindfulness meditation workshops. Our community space – the ‘Living Room’ – is provided at no cost to groups and individuals who want to do something good at no charge for local people and the community as part of our vision to resource and enable people to get engaged.
Our hope is always to provide a space at Home that points to something deeper. We’re not just a café – we’re built on a set of values that point to our belief that another, better world is possible. A world where all people are valued and know they have somewhere they can be ‘known’ and belong and where community is made stronger and people are happier.
Home is looking to appoint a Shift Leader – someone who will be able to support the Café Manager to run the café to a consistently high standard and be proactive and creative in making Home a great place for volunteers to work and customers to visit.
