Colinton Parish Church
Colinton Parish Church

Charity registered in Scotland SC010313

The congregation is a large extended family with an extensive youth and children’s ministry and a developing programme of pastoral care. We are very much concerned with community providing today a heart and soul for this suburban parish just as our predecessors did all the way back to 1095. The life and buildings of the parish church form a meeting ground for all ages and backgrounds as we offer a welcome in our Swing Café or accommodation for many different organisations in our rooms and halls.

Catering Manager

  • Part time
  • £21,000 pro-rata
  • Edinburgh
  • Closing 15th November 2019

Colinton Parish Church is looking for a Catering Manager to lead its team of 70 volunteers who staff the Swing Café.

The Swing Café is a not for profit venture that reaches out to the community to provide a welcoming environment and friendship to all its visitors. We have been operating for 20 years and are looking forward to the future to further develop how we use the café as part of our community outreach.

This is an exciting opportunity for someone looking for a part time, weekday role in a lovely setting with the opportunity not only to lead what we are doing now but also to help us shape what we might deliver through the café in the future.

You should have experience of working with volunteers and ideally also have been part of projects introducing change to a team. Whilst experience of working or volunteering in a catering environment would be useful, it is not essential - more important to us is having someone who can engage with volunteers and community partners and work using their own initiative.

As we are going through a period of change developing our approach to outreach, this will initially be a one year contract which we would hope to renew at the conclusion of the term.
