Front of House Supervisor:

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.

We are also very pleased that Jack Dobson will take on the role of full-time Training Support Worker.  Jack is currently a part-time Front of House Assistant/Training Support Worker, having worked for some time 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 at Rumbletums since April 2015 but prior to her employment at Rumbletums was a volunteer for a year. You’ll find Helen in the kitchen, just like 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.
