Balham Pensioners Centre has been running for 26 years and is situated in a lively Baptist Church in South London. The successful applicant would need to be responsible for general kitchen management, planning menus, ordering food supplies, and producing a three-course meal for approximately 25 people each day in our well equipped and spacious kitchen. There is a team of volunteers to assist with preparation and washing up. At present the Centre is closed on a Friday but it is hoped that we might re-open on a Friday at some point.

The Centre opens at 10.30 and closes at 3.00. Lunch, consisting of soup, main course and dessert is served between 12.00 noon and 1.00 pm. Clients prefer well balanced but simple meals, but we are starting to introduce a more varied menu as we seek to expand our clientele. In addition to attending for lunch the clients have a variety of activities each week and outings throughout the year.

We would want the applicants to have a real heart for working with older people and to get as involved as possible in the running and future development of the Centre.

Application forms and further information may be downloaded from the church web site or obtained by contacting Judith Crompton, Seniors Worker at Balham Baptist Church, leaving full contact details.

The deadline for applications is 10.00 am on Friday 14 December 2012. Interviews will be held on 20 or 21 December 2012.
