Shirley showing Angela the ropes

She has worked for many years in the sector ensuring students are able to access education and training and supporting them across a range of courses. Angela is looking forward to learning about how the café runs and will be ably supported by Courtney and Ruth as well as volunteers and other staff. Her role is to ensure the trainee programme delivers quality vocational training and structured support to each trainee. She will also be looking to recruit volunteers to support Rumbletums.

Courtney Sheldon is the Front of House Supervisor.  She has been working at Rumbletums since February 2013. Courtney ensures that the front of house section of the cafe is running smoothly and makes sure our coffee is always up to scratch!  Not only this, Courtney supports our trainees whilst they are in training to ensure that they are getting the most out of their Rumbletums experience.

Training Support Worker:

Jack Dobson is our full-time Training Support Worker, supporting and assisting our trainees and helping them develop their vocational skills and confidence. Jack is joined Rumbletums as a volunteer and has a great rapport with trainees.

Catering Supervisor:

Ruth Brown is our Catering Supervisor and has been working at Rumbletums since December 2013. You’ll find Ruth in the kitchen making and creating top quality food that our customers love and enjoy. Ruth not only makes sure that the kitchen runs smoothly on a daily basis, but along with the rest of the staff, strives to enhance the skills and abilities of our trainees in the kitchen area.


Helen Groome has been our cook since April 2015 but prior to her employment at Rumbletums was a volunteer for a year. You’ll find Helen in the kitchen with Ruth, creating lovely food and cakes for our customers to enjoy. Helen is always there to support our trainees and offer an extra helping hand whilst they acquire kitchen skills that they can take forward, potentially, into employment or onto further education.
