The Cavern

The coffee shop functions as a regular coffee shop but with a difference! It offers work experience training for vulnerable and disadvantaged people including those with complex needs. It is also a community venue and safe place for young people, those with complex mental health needs and adults with learning difficulties who need support. We support people in a person centred, and trauma informed way.

The Cavern is open 10am-11pm 6 days a week and 12pm-11pm on a Sunday so shift work will be required.

They would be confident working in a coffee shop environment and managing the individual tasks involved running a shift. More importantly than that they will have a passion for seeing people become the best they can be. Passionate about being a part of someone’s journey to better their lives, learning new skills and building healthier relationships. They will have an appreciation for the values of Treasure Seekers as an organisation and actively want to support the vision through their work.
