    Front of House Volunteer 2021/22

    Foodhall

    This opportunity takes place from 20 Sep 2021

    Our community cafe is the heart of what we do at Foodhall, and it’s our Front of House and Kitchen volunteers that make our cafe days happen! Front of house volunteers are responsible for setting up Foodhall’s cafe, welcoming people into the space, and serving drinks and food. A key part of the front of house role is creating a safe space on cafe days and ensuring that everyone feels welcome and included. This might be sitting down next to someone who is sitting on their own (if they would like you to, always ask first!), eating lunch together and having a conversation with them. You will get to know lots of Foodhall regulars, and also will welcome those visiting Foodhall for the first time to the community. The cafe is often the first point of contact/interaction that people have with Foodhall, so it can also be part of your role to welcome people to the project, tell them about what we do and how our branch projects work - there might be a branch project that they would like to get involved in!

    Responsibilities and tasks: Setting up the cafe space before the cafe opens // Opening the cafe and welcoming people into the cafe // Serving hot and cold drinks // Serving food // Making sure everybody feels welcome and safe // Introducing new visitors to Foodhall and explaining what we do (if you feel confident and happy to do this!) // Clearing up and closing down // Cashing up 

    Requirements: Good communication skills and confidence speaking to people from diverse backgrounds // A face covering to wear on shift (if you’re exempt, you can let us know) // No symptoms of COVID-19 or contact with a symptomatic person for the last 7 days.

    Desired skills and qualities: A friendly and welcoming manner // Good communication skills and a willingness to chat! :)  // Observant - eg. ability to see if someone is alone and could use a hello // Ability to use initiative // Care for others’ wellbeing 

    What this role could offer you: Experience that would be applicable for front of house roles in the hospitality industry. (If we ever get our coffee machine back then we can offer barista training!) // Increased confidence working in a public-facing role // An opportunity to make new friends!

We are looking for volunteers to help us to google and research a range of local businesses, within topic areas, with relevant contact details and inputting these into a spreadsheet. This will be a huge help for the future of Fundraising at Roundabout as it will allow us to reach out for Charity of the Year Partnerships with corporates, find raffle prizes or even find attendees for our special events that we put on. Whilst some of the research might seem a little monotonous you would be helping to secure the future of our funding which is quite a special thing to be a part of.

    Club Member 'Rotaractor' 2021/22

    Rotaract Club of Sheffield

    This opportunity is ongoing, with no end date.

    Rotaract Club of Sheffield is looking for volunteers to service the community through projects, designed by the members themselves. At this moment, the club has been active for almost a year with projects centred around endometriosis, cerebral palsy, support for homeless people through fundraising, online campaigning and raising awareness.If you are looking for a way to develop leaderships skills whilst improving the community of Sheffield, then please reach out and let's collaborate. Now, more than ever, we need to come together and bring initiatives to better the life in Sheffield.

    It is a membership club affiliated to Rotary with the same principles and ideals of service. We are currently 13 members, very diverse and inclusive, mostly students with various abilities and interests. 

    No payment is needed and the club members are to find their own projects and ways of giving service to the community. The latest projects include an online conference to raise awareness and funds for Endometriosis UK, gift donation of goods to the Shelter House in Sheffield and fundraising for Cerebral Palsy Society. 

    Within the last few months, the sponsored and our 'parent' Rotary club have also raised £4000 towards the Whirlow Hall Farm Trust where help is always welcomed  https://www.whirlowhallfarm.org/education , built eco-greenhouses in schools (made from plastic bottles)  and help with Food-bank distribution. Future projects include a Canal towpath clear up and preliminary organisation of our annual Schools Sheffield Young Artist competition/exhibition for 2020/21 and on line mock interviews and career advice to schools.

    These are Rotary projects which we need volunteers for but the Rotaract Club will have their own priorities and ideas of how best to give service.

    International service based on Rotary Foundation https://www.rotary.org/en/about-rotary/rotary-foundation  and has given $4billion on life changing sustainable projects but as you can imagine this mainly about raising funds (not hand in pocket). Most of the hands on volunteering would be on local projects.
