Veg Box People and Manchester Veg People are recruiting for an energetic role in fresh produce logistics!
These two co-operative organisations 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 and organically. Veg Box People is growing its network of collection points so that households and families across Greater Manchester can access the same produce in convenient and competitively priced veg boxes. With 23 collection points, from community centres to cafes, to mobile stalls, we are packing around 350-400 bags per week. After moving into a larger packing space we are looking to scale up our operations to provide organic produce to more people in Greater Manchester.
We need someone who shares our passion to create better food systems to help us consolidate and grow both businesses. We’re looking for a proactive and energetic team member to help deliver our produce to Greater Manchester residents. You will need to be an all-rounder as we share much of the work we do, but we are particularly looking for someone to join the team in a packing and delivering role.
The deadline for the position is 8am on Monday 14th December.
