JOBS

JOBS AT LEEDS NORTH AND WEST FOODBANK

We are proud to be part of the Trussell Trust Network of food banks and as such our long term vision is for an end to the need for our foodbank services.
We agree with Trussell Trust that it would be wrong for us just to focus on providing the best possible emergency food to people in crisis today. Everyone should be able to afford the essentials in life, including food, and we want to see a future where no one needs to use a food bank.

As we work together this year we will be looking at recruiting people with a passion to fight the injustice of hunger and poverty, and help people in crisis in Leeds. If this sounds like you and you are interested in any of our current vacancies we want to hear from you.

Campaigns Coordinator

Do you want to work on ending food bank use, one of the British public’s key issues for the UK General election?

Do you share Trussell Trust’s vision of ‘ending the need for food banks’? Well, this could be the role for you!

We are looking for a motivated candidate, who is keen to work across multiple constituencies, to try and influence prospective parliamentary candidates (PPC’s) across the political spectrum. This is a nonpartisan role, with the needs of food banks, and those who use food banks, at the centre.

 

Role outline and purpose

The food bank Campaign Coordinator will be responsible for delivering Trussell Trusts’ influencing and mobilising work, in their target area, during ( pre and post ) the General Election. You will do this by building strong relationships with other food banks in your Combined Local Authority.

Campaign Coordinators implement Trussell’s national General Election strategy, by using organising techniques to put pressure on PPC’s in each Combined Local Authority. You will build and lead local community teams who support ending the need for food banks, securing commitments from your PPC’s to ‘prioritise the problem of people going without essentials if re/elected, acknowledging the role social security needs to play in tackling it.’
