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.

Senior Data Analysis Manager

Home based within the UK with some travel for meetings, conferences, 121’s and team away days
Data and intelligence are vital in helping the best decisions to be made across the organisation and the food bank network. They are also vital to work influencing external audiences to achieve our mission of ending the need for food banks. They must be brought together from a variety of different sources and systems. The consequences of the decisions to be informed range from those that are immediate, to those of a longer term more strategic nature. This role manages the team which delivers the data and intelligence needed by Trussell Trust’s senior leadership, by a wide range of teams across the organisation and by the food bank network. The team is responsible for providing organisational dashboards, reports and data to support decision-making across the organisation and for the analysis. It is also accountable for quality assurance and provision of data about our operations and network for internal and external audiences. The team works with others to build capacity across the Trussell Trust’s network of food banks to gather and use data and evidence effectively and it provides data packs and tools to support this.
