Job description

Social Bite is a sandwich shop with a difference. Every day we provide free food to 150 people from the homeless community in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen. We work to end people’s isolation and exclusion by helping them to overcome barriers.

We are looking for a special someone to run our Social Bite Events in Edinburgh and engage with people who have been affected by homelessness in volunteering and employment opportunities.

You will come with experience in working to support and develop individuals with multiple/complex needs and a desire to join our collaborative movement to end homelessness. You will build positive relationships with volunteers and external partners. You will show your love for food preparation and using food as a tool to engage with people.

You will enjoy taking your own initiative but also working as a part of the team. You will travel around our various locations. You will be resilient, always bringing a smile and can-do attitude to your work.

We need you to be:

•            A person who has good knowledge and minimum of two experience of working with vulnerable adults and challenging situations

•            A person who can quickly build strong relationships for developing effective internal relationships and partnerships with a range of charities
