A workers' cooperative growing food on London's edge in the Lea Valley

Job Opportunity: Volunteer Support

We are looking for someone to join our workers’ co-operative and support our work – based at our food growing hub at the Hawkwood Plant Nursery. We are particularly seeking skills linked to our volunteer programme – managing the logistics of recruiting and supporting some 65 volunteers a week on site. This work brings green care and informal learning into the heart of OrganicLea’s food growing and Hawkwood site activity. The role is part of our Community Learning and Inclusion team which puts people at the centre of all we do. This team have skills in project coordination, progression support, community partnership work, formal and informal adult education and training across ages and abilities, and a strong track record of spotting opportunities and making things happen!

Are you excited by seeing innovative, sometimes hard-to reach projects succeed? Do you thrive in a team environment where challenges are held together and cross pollination and edges are essential to best outcomes? Does the idea of sometimes stepping forward and other times holding back carry weight for you?

More detailed tasks and responsibilities, and the skills and qualities we are seeking, are set out in the Job Description and Role Specification. Applications should be made using our short application form.

Please send completed applications to debbie[at]organiclea.org.uk.

Deadline for applying is midday on Monday 19 July. Interviews will be held on Friday 23 July.
