Job Opportunity: Food Waste Project Co-ordinator

Jul 26, 2022 | Uncategorized

Are you passionate about the environment?

Are you a great organiser and communicator, who likes working with local communities? Do you want a chance to do meaningful work with families, increasing their confidence and reducing their social isolation?

This is an exciting opportunity to help reduce food waste, provide free (or low cost) food to people who need it, and support parents/carers in developing their skills and gaining some work experience, as part of our ‘Transforming Lives’ programme in West London.

Inspired by environmental movements such as The Real Junk Food Project (TRJFP) and The Real Junk Food Café in Twickenham, The School & Family Works have set up Food Stalls at a number of primary schools in West London. Our dedicated Food Project Co-ordinator sources food from local business partners and helps volunteers to run stalls in the playgrounds of local schools.

We are looking for a reliable and enthusiastic worker to co-ordinate the Food Project from September 2022. This is a permanent position.

Salary: £10,920 plus 5% employer’s pension contribution (to match employee’s contribution) plus expenses

Hours: 3 days per week (21 hours) during term time plus 6 other days to be agreed – a total of 120 days per annum

Reports to: The ‘Transforming Lives’ Programme Manager

The majority of the work will take place during term time, but we do require the flexibility to occasionally carry out some additional duties during school holidays. The person carrying out this role will need a full, clean driving license and access to a car. A DBS check will be required. For the full job description, please see here or email: joanna.watson@theschoolandfamilyworks.co.uk

excellent candidate, to joanna.watson@theschoolandfamilyworks.co.uk by noon on Thursday 1st September.

We intend to interview for this post w/c 5th September
