Term: 1 year fixed term contract
Hours: 21 hrs, 3 days Mon- Wed
Salary: £17,000 – £18,000 pro rata
Location: Speke, Merseyside
21 hours, 3 days Mon-Wed (1 year fixed term contract)


This role is a dual purpose one; working to support volunteers as well as the warehouse team. FareShare volunteers provide us with the manpower to ensure that no good food goes to waste. In this role we are looking for someone who is comfortable leading groups, supervising,instructing and motivating.

Our volunteers perform a variety of roles in our Regional Centres, from picking and sorting to driving and customer service. They come from diverse backgrounds, including our corporate and food partner sponsors and offer us more than manpower; they are our greatest asset and without them, FareShare would not be able to operate. Your role will be to ensure they feel valued and supported, and that they have the necessary tools, equipment and guidance to perform their roles to the best of their ability.

Supported by a staff team of coordinators and the volunteer manager, you will be out on the warehouse floor on hand to guide volunteers in the tasks they have been allocated, answering
questions and generally offering support and encouragement.

In addition to the work in the warehouse you will work alongside our volunteer manager assisting with the coordination of the volunteer programme. This will include supporting them
with recruitment and retention activities including working with our online volunteer portal.

Your support for the warehouse team will come in the form of providing cover for planned and sometimes adhoc absences. Utilising all the skills and knowledge you have gained from
supporting the volunteers you will step in to help ensure the smooth operations of the warehouse so that no good food goes to waste.

This is a great opportunity to get involved with all aspects of the FareShare London operation so we are looking for someone who is able to be flexible in their shift pattern and highly adaptable.

If you’re passionate about food waste, improving the lives of vulnerable people, spreading the message about the FareShare’s mission and are a natural born leader who works well with a
wide range of people, we need you!
