Jobs and Volunteer Roles

Work for the Trussell Trust and help us change lives.

4 in 5 food bank users go hungry multiple times a year and over half the children helped by food banks 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.
