For over 25 years Big Breakfast Plus has been supporting the homeless, providing cooked breakfasts to those in need and helping them to engage with support services.
We’re looking for a Project Coordinator who can manage the day to day operations, including supervising our dedicated team of catering staff and volunteers and engaging with both guests and partner agencies, as well as supporting our management committee with administrative, PR and fundraising tasks.
We are looking for someone to work 20 hours a week, including covering 5 breakfast shifts (from 7am to 9am on a rota basis between Monday and Sunday) where you will be supervising the team, helping with preparing and serving breakfasts at busy times, as well as carrying out stock takes, health and safety checks and other administrative tasks. It’s essential to keep track of how many people are using our service, as this helps us to gain further funding. So an ability to multi-task and manage your time effectively is definitely important!
With your experience of supervising staff and volunteers, you will be able to support us in introducing new processes for reviews and appraisals, as well as handling recruitment and induction of new volunteers/staff, providing information to our payroll provider and organising rotas.
For your remaining 10 hours per week, you will have the chance to get involved in many areas of the charity’s work, including liaising with partner organisations, attending networking meetings with trustees to raise the profile of our project and helping with fundraising and marketing activities. You will also support the management committee by preparing reports and statistics for monthly meetings and providing admin support such as producing agendas and minutes.
It’s essential that you have strong communication skills, as you will be the first point of contact for the organisation and will need to be able to build rapport with people from all backgrounds.
To be successful in this role, you will have an understanding of the voluntary sector, and ideally an understanding of homelessness. It is also important that you are computer literate, as well as having basic cooking skills! Equally important is the ability to listen without judging and provide a friendly welcome to everyone who needs our services.
We will provide training on food safety, first aid and health and safety if you do not already hold up to date qualifications in these areas.
We will provide you with a laptop to enable you to carry out some of your work remotely and we require a certain amount of flexibility with regards your working pattern to enable you to attend external meetings.
