Café Nutid is looking for a new Bar Manager, who can help manage and inspire our biggest volunteer team – The bar team. It is a position that requires competences within management or leadership, as you will be managing many different volunteers. It is also a position that requires hands-on bar skills.

More concretely, the role as bar manager involves:

  • Responsible for creating the monthly shift rooster in our scheduling system, and assisting volunteers in any issues related to shift planning.
  • Being the main contact person for bar-volunteers when shift related issues arise.
  • Taking at least one bar shift per month, to stay updated on bar routines, tasks and procedures.
  • Having a general overview on how the bar is running and help developing and optimizing the café/bar in collaboration with the other managers of Café Nutid and the student worker.
  • Attend meetings with the other managers of Café Nutid.
  • Plan and host a monthly meeting for all the volunteers in Café Nutid.

Please note that other tasks could be defined in collaboration if you have other ideas to how the job could be approached. The workload is 20 - 25 hours per month.

Who are you?

You are a person who feels comfortable in a position with a lot of responsibility, where a big group of volunteers will need and rely on your help and your ability to manage. You should be able to keep a general overview of the bar, and the volunteers who works in the bar. You should have a huge self-drive, be pro-active and follow through with the tasks you have. Finally, you should be able to represent the bar, and give others insight in both strengths and weaknesses in the bar-team so that those can be improved on. It is a plus if you have previous management and/or café experience.

Who are we?

Café Nutid is a volunteer driven café in the heart of Copenhagen. With around 50 volunteers performing various tasks, we host events and sell coffee with the goal of donating all our profits to Danish Church Aid (Folkekirkens Nødhjælp), supporting their work all around the world. We value community and unity, and seek to create a space where the social environment is great and volunteers can work with whatever areas they find interesting.       

What can we offer?

An unique space with people from a broad range of backgrounds. A place where the social element is highly prioritized. A place where people can get experience within their field of interest, while doing something good for the world.


If you are interested, please send an application including a motivational letter and a CV to the contact person. The recruitment will be an ongoing process, so please do not hesitate to contact us if you are interested.
