The Clubhouse Bar is a bar and restaurant in the heart of Makeni established and run by the charity  Street Child of Sierra Leone. The bar attracts both expat and national customers with its mixed western and African menu, friendly staff and pleasant atmosphere. It is part of a chain of commercial initiatives which provide a sustainable, self-funding income for our work with some of the most vulnerable children in Sierra Leone. 
We are looking for a volunteer who will bring enthusiasm and initiative to The Clubhouse Bar.

The role involves:
  • Taking a lead in planning and organising regular events, for example, fundraisers, band nights, pub quiz nights, themed parties, sports screenings, BBQs, etc.
  • Driving profits by marketing The Clubhouse Bar and its events to potential customers through posters, promotions, facebook updates, etc. 
  • Promoting the work of Street Child of Sierra Leone to customers and local businesses by ensuring visibility of our projects within all commercial venues. 
  • Building links with local businesses, musicians, etc. and encouraging use of The Clubhouse Bar as a venue for all kinds of meetings and events.
  • Planning and conducting weekly staff training to ensure highest quality service
