Cyrenians is working in partnership with Falkirk Council to transform Arnotdale House in Dollar Park back into a centrepiece of the community. The newly renovated building will house a café, as well as offer events/meeting/party spaces and office accommodation. Cyrenians will run this as a social enterprise with opportunities for members of the local community to get involved, including those accessing Cyrenians existing employability services in Falkirk.

The café is projected to be fully operational by summer 2019 and we are looking for full and part time Chefs to develop this offering, namely; food preparation and delivery, day-to-day management of the kitchen and café areas, and line management of Café Assistants.

You should have experience as a chef or cook in a café, event catering or similar environment, as well as excellent organisational skills and the ability to multi-task. A creative approach and strong communication skills will enable you to work effectively with people from a variety of backgrounds to offer a café that is valued by the local community. You should also have the ability to demonstrate our values of compassion, respect, integrity and innovation in the work that you do.

Cyrenians is a charity working towards a society that truly values and includes all. Our Vision is of an inclusive society in which we all have the opportunities to live valued and fulfilled lives. We work to make that vision a reality through our mission to support people excluded from family, home, work or community on their life journey.
