The Pump seeks business partner to realise full potential of on-site café

The Pump is a hub for youth work and activity in Kitts Green, East Birmingham and offers music, dance and dance studios, a performance space, a cyber-cafe and a day nursery.

Formerly known as the Shard End Community Building Project (SECBP), The Pump is the realisation of a vision of HRH The Prince of Wales, who wanted to create an outstanding building which as well as acting as a focus and inspiration for the personal development of young people would also be designed and built by young people. 

The Pump has the following social enterprise opportunity:

The Pump is looking for a provider to take on its Cafe to enable the organisation to offer even better services to our community.

It is looking for individuals who have experience of catering and have a passion for good, tasty, healthy food coupled with sound business skills to realise the potential of this great small business.

The aim is to partner with an organisation or individual, who shares The Pump’s vision to develop the café into a thriving and profitable community asset, whereby people can learn and achieve through dedicated training and bespoke courses to meet community need.

The Pump will be asking for presentations against a short brief to be given to two of its Trustees at the beginning of June 2017. If you are interested please contact Charlotte Linforth on 0121 675 8381 or send her mail
