We are recruiting for a Packing & Delivery Worker

We are looking to recruit a passionate and hardworking person to join us for 30 hours a week, and help to grow Manchester’s food revolution.

Hours: 30 hours per week.

Days: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

Term: Permanent Contract

Salary: £18,525 pro rata per annum (£14,820 for 30 hours weekly)

Location: You will be based at our packing unit at Wilsons Park, Monsall Road M40 8WN for the practical days, and either from home or our packing space on administrative days.

The role itself will include lots of different jobs, from meeting the farmers and growers of the produce, to helping to pack the bags with the team, delivering them to the collection points, and helping out with general admin tasks.

Its a particularly exciting time for us. As we slowly come out of lockdown, and with our new and bigger premises, we are working hard to make organic, local fruit and veg accessible to even more communities around the city. The community shares campaign to buy Kindling Farm has recently finished, and the demand to scale up the amount of organic produce on sale is huge. As Veg Box People we will play a vital role in meeting this demand and connecting the city to the farmers through the fresh and healthy produce they grow.

This is a really exciting chance for you to be part of a hugely positive change for Greater Manchester's food systems - if you are an all-rounder and team player looking for a job in Manchester's biggest independent organic veg box scheme then please apply.
