Jobs

Work for The Trussell Trust and help us change lives.

4 in 5 foodbank users go hungry multiple times a year and over half the children helped by foodbanks over the summer holiday months are primary school age. If you feel outraged by these facts and have a passion to help us change this, then keep reading!

The Trussell Trust has restructured over the past year to ensure we can reach more people in need and meet the growing demand for our support and services. It’s an exciting time to be joining this fast-growing charity as many of our roles are brand new and we’re looking for the right person to fill each one and make it their own. You’ll have the drive and determination to work with the team with a great can-do attitude.

If you feel you have the required passion, energy and enthusiasm to help us bring an end to poverty and hunger, then you’re on your way to becoming part of something that will make a real difference to people’s lives.

Foodbank Network Area Manager – Essex and Hertfordshire (excluding West Hertfordshire)

As an Area Manager, you will work closely with a network of foodbanks as they deliver essential help to local people in severe crisis.  You will help foodbank charities strengthen and broaden their practice, sharing expertise and initiatives that add value to foodbanks’ reach and impact.  In particular you will help foodbanks reach beyond emergency food to deliver additional services under the “More Than Food” programme that help lift clients out of poverty.  You will also act as the regional point of contact for a highly regarded and dynamic charity at the forefront of addressing and challenging poverty in the UK.

About you:

You will have excellent communication skills, and will be able to relate confidently to people of all walks of life with empathy and ease. You will be organised and be able to juggle competing priorities, often under time pressure. You will be an enthusiastic networker, skilled at negotiating benefits and support from external partners which will help the foodbanks in your region to thrive and succeed at every level.

If this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you as we work together to stop UK hunger.
