Tamil Feasts is social enterprise that supports recently settled people seeking asylum through the celebration of food and culture. The project currently employs four Tamil cooks who host traditional Sri Lankan dinners two times a week at the Merri Table. Each week over forty dedicated volunteers assist the team with all of the cooking, serving and cleaning that is required to run a feast night. The enterprise aims to break down barriers and provide opportunities for genuine connection by offering not just food, but a facilitated connection between asylum seekers and concerned or curious citizens. Tamil Feasts are pre-booked, with feasts usually selling out each week.
We are looking for an approachable and experienced supervisor with a strong hospitality background. A high level of hospitality experience is needed to excel in supervising the team at Tamil Feasts.

CERES offers an inclusive and diverse working environment and the position plays a large role in the success of Tamil Feasts. Being able to efficiently problem solve and provide outstanding customer service is a must for this role.
