Work with us

Recruiting for the intoBodmin Cafe Lead.

intoBodmin is looking to recruit a Cafe Lead. We would like to work with someone with a passion for community engagement who would be keen to help us create and shape the community cafe offer, including running a safe and productive kitchen and cafe, working closely with recruiting, supporting and training volunteers and developing what we offer.

The Old Library Cafe, designed by Boaz Studio, was opened to the public in September 2019. It was initially leased on a franchise basis to Ola Cafe. intoBodmin CIC have now taken over the running and have developed a short term trial to utilise the space and facilities while responding to the fact that individuals and households across Bodmin face financial and wellbeing hardship due to the current pandemic crisis. The cafe is currently run by the interim Cafe Lead and a small team of volunteer staff. It opens 4 days a week, offering a very simple menu of drinks, cakes and a soup on a Pay What You Decide basis. The cafe operates under full covid guidelines and has 8 outdoor tables and 4 indoor tables. It is open from 11am-2pm Wednesday - Saturday. The project is made possible through re-purposing some grant funding. We hope the cafe will cover it’s costs but anticipate that the Pay What You Decide scheme will likely become a ‘happy hour’ type event and that a more regular cafe operation will surround it. To this end, there is scope for the cafe and this role to increase, should capacity and turnover allow and we would work with the successful candidate in developing this.
