Food Cycle managed by Oasis Ashburton Park Community Hub

You did not enter a postcode in the search, or the postcode for this role is unknown.

A FoodCycle project is where the magic happens: we collect food from supermarkets, bring it to a venue and cook it into a three-course meal for our guests. The project is run on the ground by a team called Project Leaders. These people are passionate, committed people who want to make a positive change within their community. There will be a team of 8-10 Project Leaders who take on a specific area such as managing volunteers, promoting the project locally or running fundraising events.

This is a variable role. The volunteer must be available for on average 6 hours a month. This is broken down into:
- Attending a monthly Project Leader meeting to discuss as a team how things are going.
- Leading 1 cooking/hosting session per month.

As Team Co-ordinator, you’ll support the Project Co-ordinator with Project Leader recruitment, organise team meetings and liaise with your community partners.

Skills you’ll learn:

• Recruitment of volunteers: you’ll support the Project Co-ordinator to recruit Project Leaders.

• Relationship management: you’ll liaise with your community partners and work hard to maintain good communication channels and a strong working relationship.

• Communication: you’ll be the Project Leader team’s main point of contact with Food Cycle Central and the Project Co-ordinator.

• Leadership and delegation: we’ll train you up to lead hosting sessions and induct new volunteers into the project.

• Relationship building: you’ll be building lasting relationships with your volunteers and guests, ensuring they come back each week.

• Social media: you’ll utilise social media channels to promote your project and events.

• Fundraising: you and your team will be responsible for raising vital funds to support your project.

• Running effective meetings: you meet with your Project Leader team once a month to discuss the running of your project.
