The Circle Café provides Living Wage employment and training for one year to looked-after young people and care leavers. We run this in partnership with Barnardo’s Works, Leisure and Culture Dundee and Dundee City Council. It has been funded by the Community Lottery Fund.
Based at Staffa Place, in the Strathmartine Ward, The Circle is a community hub and offers affordable space to charities, social enterprises and small businesses. We support organisations with a More Than Profit approach to become sustainable and make a social impact. Our other services are offices, room bookings, consultancy and The Circle Academy.
The Circle Café currently employs a Café Manager, Café Supervisor and one Young Start Trainee.
Since opening, The Circle Café has had steady attendance over lunchtime and has a growing list of corporate clients who order buffets. In order to continue their growth and support the trainees appropriately, we are looking for volunteers to help us.
- Cooking in the café and serving to our tenants and visitors during our opening times. Experience is preferred and help is needed from 9am to 2pm, Monday to Friday.
- Administration – diary and bookings, orders and email communications. Volunteers are welcome from 9am to 4.30pm, Monday to Friday.
- Promotion – delivering menus and flyers to businesses in Dundee. Can do this at any time but direction and materials provided from 9am to 4.30pm, Monday to Friday. Mileage paid, if applicable.
