We are hiring!!!

Project Food takes its role in the community extremely seriously.  Supporting people, many of whom are vulnerable, to develop the confidence, motivation and skills they need for better health is an important responsibility and we also want to make sure that people also have fun and enjoy their interactions with us.

Our mission is to enable people in the South West to improve their diet, so they enjoy better physical and mental health; we want to provide a helping hand to healthy eating.

Our values, which are the lens through which we do everything, are to be committed to and respect others; to support and inspire them, and to excel in what we do.

As our Administrative Assistant you will make an important contribution to our work and support our whole by providing efficient, organised and effective office and project support ensuring the effective running of our work and the best possible support for our beneficiaries.

We are looking for someone well organised and enthusiastic about Project Food and its aims, as well as someone who enjoys working as part of a small team.  The role will require frequent communications with our beneficiaries and volunteers, so someone who enjoys interacting with others is essential. We frequently need to help each other out, and any role within the organisation requires a degree of flexibility.  Although this is primarily an admin role, it is not the job for someone who only wants to sit at a desk!

This is a permanent, part time role.  Hours will be 30 hours per week and the ideal candidate will work Monday to Friday (6 hours per day).  The rate of pay is £11 per hour and holiday entitlement for this role is 28 days per year, including bank holidays.
