FareShare – Driver/Warehouse Coordinator

Reporting to: Regional Manager.
Location: Speke.
Contract: Permanent.
Hours: 35 hours.
Salary: £19,838 per annum.

Employer Bio

FareShare is the UK’s national network of charitable food redistributors, made up of 18 independent organisations. Together, they take good quality surplus food from right across the food industry and get it to nearly 9,500 frontline charities and community groups.

The food they redistribute is nutritious and good to eat. It reaches charities across the UK, including school breakfast clubs, older people’s lunch clubs, homeless shelters, and community cafes. Every week they provide enough food to create almost a million meals for vulnerable people.

Every year, more than three million tones of food go to waste in the UK, enough for 7 billion meals. Meanwhile, the cost of living crisis is driving millions in to food insecurity. FareShare has a plan to help tackle the cost of living crisis using England’s surplus food.

They are fortunate to benefit from the support of major retailers, the media, sports ambassadors and a groundswell of public engagement. As a result, there has never been a more exciting time to join an organisation at the heart of public consciousness.
