Jobs at the Trussell Trust

Help us end the need for food banks

Although the Trussell Trust will always support food banks to help people in their community, we know that food is not the answer to poverty. Therefore, it would be wrong for us just to focus on providing the best possible emergency food to people in crisis today. Everyone should be able to afford the essentials in life, including food, and we want to see a future where no one needs to use a food bank.

While supporting emergency food provision will continue to be a core part of our work, we’re first and foremost an anti-poverty charity. Alongside providing vital bespoke support to every food bank in our network, major additional services will be rolled out in food banks over the next year to help Change Communities, and we’ll forge new relationships with agencies and organisations who can help people in crisis address their financial situation well before they reach the point of needing to access a food bank. But just as important will be our planned investment in research, advocacy, engagement and campaigning to Change Minds and Change Policy.

The roles advertised below will be at the heart of this vital work, and we’re incredibly excited that they will help us reach our vision quicker, providing thousands of people with the dignity of buying their own food. If you want to fight the injustice of hunger and poverty, and help people in crisis across the UK, we want to hear from you.
