Manchester Veg People and Veg Box People are recruiting now!
Veg Box People and Manchester Veg People are two co-operative organisations that work closely together to deliver a model of a more sustainable and fairer food system for Greater Manchester. 
 
We are at an exciting and challenging stage in the development of both businesses. Manchester Veg People's catering wholesale operation ensures that caterers in the public and private sector can access veg that is grown locally, sustainably and organically. Veg Box People is growing it's network of collection points so that households and families across Greater Manchester can access the same produce in convenient and competitively priced veg boxes. 
 
We need someone who shares our passion to create better food systems to help us consolidate and grow both businesses. You will need to be an all-rounder as we share all the work we do. Your typical week could include collecting veg and packing it for our customers, driving to our customers, delivering veg and explaining why our products are so much better than anyone else's, and then working with a variety of software to administer and improve our business processes.
