If you like to serve in a practical way, why not join one of our fun, friendly and dedicated Café teams? You'll be with the same team throughout the week and serve on shift, so can also enjoy lots of the main United programme. As with most team places, your event ticket and all meals are free of charge.
Most of our cafés are sponsored by charities so you will have the choice of which charity you apply for. The sponsors will be announced on this page shortly. The café manager for your preferred café will then handle your application. Barista or shop/catering experience is desirable but not essential, as some training will be provided.
- Serving customers
- Preparing hot drinks
- Cleaning café areas
- Monitoring stock
- Working within food safety standards
- Handling cash
Shift patterns vary between venues so will be confirmed by the café manager following successful application. All team are expected to help with set up and pack down of the café at the start and close of the event. Cafés may stay open during the midweek rest day, although managers will try to arrange shift patterns to allow for time off.
