The Connection at St. Martins is a homelessness charity based in the heart of London, tucked between Charing Cross Station and Trafalgar Square. The Connection has been helping homeless people since the First World War and is one of London’s largest homelessness charities. We have an annual turnover of £5.2m, a staff team of 100 and around 50 regular volunteers. This is an exciting time to join the organisation in this role. We have embarked on a new strategy, have inducted social enterprise into the heart of our organisation and, in doing so, have made a step change in how we work. The Enteprise Head Chef role will straddle managing the day to day running of the catering function at The Connection with developing a enterprise pipeline of food and drink products and pop-ups and events from the kitchen at The Connection. Historically The Connection at St Martins has very limited experience of trading and enterprise. As part of our strategy for 2018-23, we have an ambition to change this. We will be scaling up our enterprise revenue from less than 1% of our turnover currently to nearer 5% over the next 4 years, with activity from the newly formed Enterprise Kitchen forming a significant portion of this growth. We want to achieve a mixture of purely profit-making activity alongside activity which creates training and route to work opportunities for clients.
