We are a dynamic community and youthwork organisation based in the Blackhill/ Provanmill area of north-east Glasgow.
Through our varied and creative programmes, St Paul’s Youth Forum works with our local community to alleviate
the worst effects of poverty. Thanks to significant funding from Glasgow City Council, and the support of the
People Make Glasgow Communities team and Glasgow Life, we are thrilled to be able to reopen our local Community
Centre and establish a community hub in the heart of Blackhill.
Purpose of the Role
Are you passionate about the power of food to bring people together? At SPYF, food has been at the core of many of
our programmes for a number of years and we are hugely excited for the potential this cafe has to catalyse
growth in our community.
The Training Cafe Manager will manage the cafe within the SPYF Molendinar Community Centre as a training venture,
working in partnership with local secondary schools to increase the employability of local young people whilst
providing a vital service for the local community. A key purpose of the cafe will also be to provide a free
healthy meal for anyone in need, alongside other menu options.
We envisage that the Training Cafe Manager will deliver a complete introduction to all facets of hospitality work,
including accredited qualifications, cooking skills, front of house, and business management. Partnership
working will be key to this post to maximise the benefits for the young people we will be working with,
including developing opportunities for positive destinations beyond their time at the SPYF Molendinar Community
Centre Cafe, whether that be in hospitality or in further education.
Additionally, the Training Cafe Manager will be responsible for managing a team member who will look after the cafe
during late afternoon and evening shifts, ensuring that all cafe protocols are adhered to.
Working closely with staff, Trustees, local authorities, funders and external commercial organisations, the SPYF
Training Cafe Manager will work to ensure that a welcoming learning space operates for the benefit of, not only
young people and local residents, but people throughout Glasgow.
Thanks to funding from Glasgow City Council’s Place Fund, this post is funded for 2 years with a view to extend this
subject to further funding.
