Kitchen Volunteer

Can you help deliver Mustard Tree’s warm welcome, by assisting our Chef and trainees to prepare and serve meals? Do love to cook and help others? You could be providing one of Mustard Tree’s most important services!

Our Training Kitchen gives people facing barriers to employment and well-being the opportunity to gain new skills, qualifications and improve their confidence.

Role Description:

  • Help prepare and serve meals for clients, service users and volunteers
  • Provide support for Mustard Tree Trainees throughout the day.
  • Assist the Chef with the running of the kitchen, including restocking and cleaning down after service


As a kitchen volunteer, you’ll be helping to create the warm Mustard Tree welcome and sense of community that makes the charity so special.

What we’re looking for:

  • Good communication skills
  • A kind, patient, and non-judgemental attitude
  • A love of chatting to and meeting new people
  • A willingness to get stuck in and take on new tasks
  • Someone who’d like to make a difference and help provide an essential service
  • Experience working with vulnerable people would be a bonus, but not necessary
  • A food hygiene certificate is desirable but not essential, as we can provide you with one whilst you volunteer

We are currently looking for somebody to volunteer either once or twice per week, 8.30am – 2.30pm. If you are interested, click here and fill in the enquiry form, stating you are interested in the Kitchen Volunteer role.
