  • £27,500 – £32,000
  • Parkhead Schoolhouse, 135 Westmuir Street, Parkhead, Glasgow (On site)
  • Closing 19th April 2024

A key aspect of this role requires the postholder to be on-site during their work hours. Consequently, working from home or hybrid working is not available.

The Pantry receives and distributes surplus, fit-for-consumption food, provided through effective partnerships with Fareshare Glasgow and the West which includes fresh fruit, vegetables, meat and dairy to offer a quality shopping experience for a membership fee of £2.50 per shop. As opposed to the foodbank model of free crisis provision, the pantry offers dignity and choice in exchange for a small membership fee, providing support to people on a low income, or recovering from a crisis.

You will be working with an innovative community food pantry and will be expected to deliver excellent performance results in all areas of the business. You will be a dynamic and engaging manager with excellent communication, management, leadership and coaching skills and will have a commitment to delivering a high-quality service in line with our mission and values. You will play a central role in the development of the project working closely with the local and bordering communities as well as wider networks and key partners.

The Community Food Coordinator will have the formal responsibility for delivering key elements within the Job Description. They will be achieved through effective working relationships with those in the identified key relationships. However, the Job Description does not limit or define the scope of this role.

This is a varied and physically demanding role, and the post holder will require to be ‘hands-on’ with the day-to-day running of the Pantry.
