We have an exciting opportunity for a volunteer to join our new Social Enterprise Team – the Real Jam and Chutney Company. Supporting our kitchen team and working directly with the people we support, this role is all about offering guidance, encouragement and support in the preparation of ingredients for the making of our jams, marmalades and chutneys.

About You:

Friendly, kind and approachable, this support role requires someone who really enjoys engaging with people and has good communication and interpersonal skills. It would ideally suit someone who is enthusiastic and motivational, yet has the ability to recognise those moments which require patience and calm.


As a guide, we would welcome support 10.00 am to 3.00 pm Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday each week.
