Come volunteer at our Community Café – 3 roles available

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.

Join our fundraising committee and have an impact on the local community

Would you like to make a difference in the community, learn new skills and gain experience that you can add to your CV, all while meeting new people?

Then joining The Circle’s volunteer fundraising committee is perfect for you! This opportunity is open to everyone, we welcome volunteers with all kinds of skills and no specific qualifications are required. You will play a key role in helping improve The Circle for tenants and the local community.

The Circle is a hub for charities, social enterprises, community groups and socially aware businesses. We are looking forward to building a fundraising committee of passionate, imaginative and dedicated people to think up and plan interesting events and activities at The Circle.

As a member of our fundraising committee, you will make an important and crucial contribution to everything that The Circle stands for, as well as having the opportunity to gain new knowledge and skills, meet new people and making a huge difference in the local community. The committee will be meeting monthly to catch up and plan activities and events. We are only looking for you to commit around 6 hours of your time every month.

The fundraising committee will be responsible for organising, marketing and helping run fundraising events such as bake sales, quiz nights and craft fairs. No matter what areas you are skilled in you will have a positive impact on your local community while having some fun.

And don’t worry, you won’t be left to your own devices – Community Fundraiser, Alice, will be available to offer advice and support.

If you think this is for you then pop along to The Circle for a coffee and chat on Monday 9th July at 4:30pm.
