We welcome applications from all sections of the community. All applicants will be treated in a fair and equal manner regardless of gender, marital status, race, religion, colour, age, disability or sexual orientation.
We are always on the look-out for motivated, hard working and experienced kitchen team members. So if you are an experienced chef, get in touch with us right away! You will need to have a passion for cooking with fresh, seasonal produce and be available to work a mixture of shifts. We look after our staff really well and offer good pay rates (Commis £9 ph, Senior CDPs £11.55 ph for example), 25 days holiday plus public hols (FTE), pension scheme and others perks like free cinema tickets and reduced price gym. We have permanent contracts for both part time (20 hours per week) and full time (40 hours per week) as well as casual zero hours contracts.
Volunteering at Depot is a great opportunity to be part of the community, develop new skills, gain some experience and meet new people. We are looking for new volunteers who can commit to a minimum of 3 x 4 hour shifts per month and are available on some weekends.
To volunteer as an usher you will need to have great interpersonal skills as the role is customer facing, the ability to adapt to a frequently changing working environment (both busy and quiet periods) and be able to work swiftly between screenings to keep the screens clear of rubbish, which can be physically demanding.
If you are interested in taking part in the usher volunteer programme, or would like to find out more, please email Emma: email@example.com. Please include details about why you are interested in volunteering, how often you would like to volunteer and if you have any particular requirements that we need to be aware of. Emma will then arrange for a trial shift to assess your suitability to the role.
