Job description

Sufra NW London is a Community Hub that provides a lifeline to people in crisis – including families living in extreme poverty and people who are vulnerable, homeless or socially isolated. We provide them with the food and support they need to survive, empower them to learn new skills and improve their wellbeing, and help them to find work and become financially stable.

As a partner of the government’s Kickstart scheme, we are offering 7 six-month paid job placements within the Organisation. If you're between 16 to 24 years old and in receipt of benefits, this could be just what you need to start your career in the charity sector.

Ever wondered what it means to work at a Food Bank? Well, this is your chance. We have a unique and exciting opportunity for a young person interested in gaining first-hand experience working on the frontlines of a fast-paced, guest facing charity. 

The successful post holder will support the Community Chef to effectively deliver our kitchen operations and high-quality food services. You will gain experience in providing nutritionally balanced and well-presented meals to hundreds of vulnerable guests daily, catering for community events and assist with delivering educational cooking courses. This is an exciting opportunity for a young person interested in entering the field of catering and hospitality.

This is an immensely rewarding role working in a dynamic charity built on an ethos of sharing, hospitality and inclusivity. We are looking for an exceptionally committed individual who is willing to go the extra mile and has flexibility to work during evenings and weekends when necessary. Through your activities, you will be able to convey the charity’s passion and commitment to supporting vulnerable people and demonstrate the impact of our interventions in transforming the lives of beneficiaries.

This role is based in our main premises in Stonebridge.
