Part-time (paid), Volunteering & Training

Summary: Breadwinners are offering part - time paid opportunities alongside volunteering and training.

Further Details:

Breadwinner’s mission is to tackle unemployment and poor well-being by providing young refugees and people seeking asylum with their first work experience in the UK and supporting them to progress in their careers.   

As part of our commitment to the Covenant, we will support care leavers who are refugees and people seeking asylum, using our award-winning bread stalls in markets across London and Brighton and wholesale for socially conscious cafes and restaurants.  

Through each of the following consecutive programmes, participants build on the skills they have learnt:  

  1. Riser’s programme: A two-month programme designed to provide structured work experience, training, and mentorship to newly arrived young people seeking asylum through our 16 stalls. 
  2. Breadwinners programme: The follow-up programme for refugees with the right to work, which involves working as a market stall manager for six months and earning the UK living wage. 
  3. Proofers programme: A progression programme that entails working remotely as part-time online sales representatives for six months, managing our wholesale delivery model. 

Over the last five years, we have supported over 358 refugees and young people seeking asylum through our programs, with 93% of our participants reporting significant improvement in their well-being. Furthermore, 88% of our Breadwinners programme participants have secured further employment after completion. 

“I’ve learnt so much about customer service and talking to new people, and I have two certificates that will help me in the future. It’s been a life-changing experience for me, and now I have a job”. Dagim, a young Eritrean referred by British Red Cross.
