Community Transport Glasgow
Community Transport Glasgow

Charity registered in Scotland SC040374

Although Glasgow has relatively good public and bespoke transport services available, community transport still has a major role to play covering a very wide range of needs from access to hospital from disadvantaged areas to ensuring that young people can participate in team sports at an affordable cost. To meet such needs, community transport provision has grown significantly in the Glasgow area in recent years and has achieved successes in capacity building within communities and meeting transport needs that are not covered by other provision.

Supplier Development Officer

  • Part time
  • £26,265 pro-rata
  • Glasgow
  • Closing 6th August 2021

This is achieved by providing affordable, reliable, accessible transport solutions to the local communities we serve. CTG is one of the largest Community Transport Charities in Scotland.

Since March 2020, CTG has been working in collaborative partnerships with a range of organisations in Glasgow Food Programme to tackle the growing issue of food poverty. During the Covid-19 crisis, CTG was identified as an anchor organisation due to being an experienced transport provider with a remit to develop partnerships with other Third, Community and Commercial Sectors to assist with transport and logistic challenges.

One of the key collaborative partnerships developed was with the Scottish Pantry Network. This partnership has developed with CTG providing both passenger and non passenger transport solutions to the Network and its member Pantries throughout Glasgow.

Both organisations are continuing to work in partnership as we look to develop a long-term sustainable strategic partnership. Part of this is to develop a supplier and logistics framework for the pantry model to get more food into the surplus supply chain to help stop food going to landfill and to ensure the pantries are fully stocked so that people can access low cost healthy food.

Therefore, we are recruiting a Supplier Development Officer to be part of our team. The Officer will work closely with the Scottish Pantry Network.

If you like the sound of this challenge and want to be part of something that makes a difference to people’s life, have a good understanding of food poverty and insecurity, able to work across a number of partners and have project development skills, then we’d love to hear from you.
