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.

Current vacancies

Catering Manager

  • Part time
  • £22,500 pro-rata
  • Edinburgh
  • Closing 26th August 2022

Colinton Parish Church is looking for a part-time Catering Manager to lead its team of circa 60 volunteers who staff the Swing Café adjacent to the Church.

The Swing Café is a not-for-profit venture that reaches out to the Colinton 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 role in a lovely setting with the opportunity not only to lead but also to help us shape what we plan to provide and deliver in the future.

Experience of working with volunteers and having been part of projects introducing change to a team are desirable. Experience of working or volunteering in a catering environment is essential. It is important to have someone who can engage with volunteers and community partners, and work using their own initiative and creativity.
