FareShare Development Manager

Deadline 10th August

(Job Ref: FSDM)
37 hours per week
Salary: £25,000 per annum

FareShare Hull & Humber is run and managed by Goodwin Development Trust. Every week FareShare Hull & Humber receives tonnes of surplus food from the food industry at its depot on Malmo Road in Hull. This food is of excellent quality and is surplus for a whole number of reasons ranging from incorrect barcoding to over-manufacture – never because it is out of date.

Fareshare in turn deliver that food every week to a network of Community Food Members. They are now seeking an experienced, confident and enthusiastic individual to join the team to provide leadership and direction to further develop and grow the service across the region.

They are recruiting for a highly organised, self-motivated and experienced Development Manager to lead on the growth and expansion of Hull & Humber Depot, as well as work closely with the Warehouse Manager to manage and co-ordinate the day to day operations.

You will be required to ensure that the depot’s operational performance is maintained and that the needs of our Community Food Members are met. In order to grow and expand the service, you will need to work with the FareShare Food Sourcing Team to ensure enough food is available to meet delivery objectives and build relationships with local food companies for additional food resources.

You will work with FareShare nationally to assess long term sustainability and options to support growth and expansion. You will be responsible for ensuring that FareShare Hull & Humber meets its ambitious strategic growth targets, which will include recruiting new Community Food Members to join FareShare and developing relationships with organisations to raise awareness and the profile of FareShare.

The successful candidate will have proven leadership of multi-dimensional projects, as well as the ability to monitoring and manage project finances. With excellent leadership, management and communication skills, you will have the ability to motivate and develop staff and volunteers, as well as engage at all levels with diverse external stakeholders.

Due to the nature of the role, you must have Level 3 Food Safety and a Forklift Truck Licence (or the willingness train). Previous experience in Warehouse / Logistics would be an advantage, as would a teaching/assessor/verifier qualification, but these are not essential.
