About us:

The Advonet Group values and respects the diversity of backgrounds, experiences and knowledge that staff, volunteers and job applicants bring. All our staff undertake mandatory training on both Equality and Diversity and LGBTQ+ Awareness to increase awareness and understanding of discrimination both in and out of the workplace, with a view to reduce the impact this has on our colleagues and the wider community. This creates a workplace where staff feel comfortable to be themselves and empowers them, and our service users, to use their unique experiences to inform their work.

Benefits of working with us:

  • Up to 31 days annual leave, plus Bank Holidays
  • Access to a cashback health plan and Employee Support scheme
  • Free parking near the city centre
  • Flexible and remote working
  • Welcoming, inclusive and supportive environment


  • Independence and Empowerment: Support and challenge ourselves and others, ensuring resources are accessible to all.
  • Integrity: Be open, honest, and accountable.
  • Equality and Diversity: Promote inclusivity and ensure everyone has an equal voice.

You will have:

  • Previous experience working with individuals with learning disabilities.

  • Experience in empowering individuals with learning disabilities to voice their thoughts and concerns.
  • Prior exposure to working in a catering environment.
  • Background in the Voluntary Sector, whether through paid employment or volunteering.

We are looking for someone with energy, vision and commitment to our values of Independence and Empowerment, Integrity, Equality and Diversity.  We are particularly keen to encourage volunteers and other supporters who are already enthusiasts of Leep1 to develop within the organisation.

The role is based at our café on Roundhay Road on the outskirts of the City Centre.
