Summary:

The Assistant Project Manager will assist in the growth and development of the organisation as a whole and especially to continue to grow the number of Community Food Members (CFMs) that we work with.  They will also deputise for the Manager.

About Us:

FareShare Cymru works with charities and community organisations across South Wales helping to fight food poverty by tackling food waste. We take surplus edible food from the food and drink industry (food that would otherwise be wasted) and redistribute it to organisations in South Wales that feed people in need, turning an environmental problem into a social solution.

Over the last year we have redistributed over 500t of surplus food, providing enough meals for over 1.1 million meals and helping in excess of 5,000 people a week.

This is a very important and exciting time for FareShare Cymru as we are about to embark on a programme of change and growth that will lead to us branching out across South Wales and into the west, recruiting more volunteers and more community food members, handling more food and expanding our base in Cardiff.

Job Role:

The role will involve the recruitment of new Community Food Members ensuring that we reach more organisations and help more people, as well as ensuring that the needs of our existing CFMs continue to be met.  You will develop new relationships, partnerships and projects as well as playing a role in the overall development of the organisation.
