This is a national charity fighting food poverty by tackling food waste. They source food that is surplus to requirements - from food retailers and manufacturers - and engage many volunteers to help redistribute this to local charities and community groups that provide meals to vulnerable people (individuals who are homeless, unemployed, socially isolated, recovering from addictions). This charity now operates 20 warehouse depots around the UK and supports over 3,400 local groups - our Community Food Members.

Main purpose of this role

This involves working closely with the Food Team to provide general support and ensure food made available to the charity that arrives at Regional Centres in an efficient and timely manner. The number of accounts and projects the Food Team is working on is growing and the team is in need of support.

The post will be line managed by the Food Sourcing Coordinator, but will also report to the Commercial Managers as appropriate to the task.
