If you’d like to get involved with a local charity addressing food insecurity in a fun family way and encourage kids to cook from scratch, this could be a great part time opportunity for you!
BRITEBox is a meal recipe kit for 5 people which has the aim of tackling food insecurity in a fun family way, providing key cooking skills to children, bringing families together around food and encouraging a healthy relationship with food from an early age.
This is an opportunity to work with the BRITE Box growing project which positively impacts the lives of children and their families locally.
The purpose of the job is to ensure the coordination and execution of the BRITE Box project from a local base in Richmond, with the support of the core BRITE Box team. This will involve managing a team of volunteers to portion ingredients and make up the BRITE Boxes, liaising with local partners and suppliers to ensure supply of ingredients and liaising with schools to deliver the BRITE Boxes to families each week. You will be part of the broader Voices of Hope and BRITE Box team working to develop and improve the programme and will be the ambassador for the project in Richmond.
Applicants are expected to be educated to a minimum of 3 A-Levels or the equivalent level of experience working at a similar level within a relevant area.
You’ll have experience of project coordination involving multiple partner organisations, working in a collaborative and productive way with a range of stakeholders. Experience of working as part of a team and of working with volunteers are essential.
It’s essential to have an understanding of the work of the voluntary sector and a keen interest in the nature and aims of the project, as well as strong communication skills and excellent organisational and interpersonal skills, with the ability to quickly build strong relationships.
The ability to confidently present to organisations and having competent digital skills (to use Pages, Excel, Google Docs, Numbers) and/or an ability to learn new systems are also essential.
You’ll be reliable and able to work on your own initiative, organise your own workload with light-touch support and have a flexible approach and willingness to be adaptable and respond to changing circumstances.
If this sounds like you, email your CV and a covering letter to email@example.com by Monday 16 October 23.
Interviews will take place shortly after the closing date and the ideal start date for the post is early November.
