How to find us:
To help in the cafe and/or kitchen to ensure customers get a good service.
This is a varied role, but may include:
The cafe/kitchen in the Pedal Power main building in Pontcanna Caravan Park.
You will be working with the Kitchen Manager and any other staff or volunteers working there.
All volunteers will be given a thorough induction into Pedal Power, to cover Pedal Power history, structure, orientation, health and safety, moving and handling, boundaries issues and dress code. Depending on what tasks you undertake, you will also get training in basic kitchen hygiene, use of the coffee machine and till, basic food preparation, use of the grill and other tasks as appropriate.
Kitchen volunteers have the opportunity to gain Food Hygiene qualifications using an in-house computer based training system.
Further training in Child Protection, Protection of Vulnerable Adults, Disability Equality Awareness are provided in house and courses such as First Aid may be available.
Supervision will be given at the end of the first day, the first month and then at a time agreed with the volunteer at a minimum of 3 monthly. Mark Quinn the Kitchen Manager will do these reviews with you.
Pedal Power is open 9am-4pm October to March and 9am-6pm April to September 7 days a week in Pontcanna and weekends only in the Bay during the winter. Volunteers are asked to commit to 3 hours per week or more.
Out of pocket travel expenses of train or bus fare from the Cardiff and Vale area to Pedal Power will be given to you if you show us your tickets. If you volunteer for 6 hours or more in a day, we will give you a free lunch.
As hygiene is so important in these roles, you will need to have a clean and tidy manner. For customer service it is important to be able to communicate clearly, and to use the till you will need to be able to handle money.
