As one of Scotland’s largest foodbanks, we are committed to providing emergency food relief to families and individuals in Renfrewshire who are experiencing financial hardship. Renfrewshire Foodbank feeds over 10,000 families and individuals annually, thanks to the support, goodwill and generosity of the local community and the energy and commitment of our many volunteers.
The Renfrewshire Foodbank Trustees have undertaken a review of the foodbank staffing structure to reflect the changing needs of the service. As a result, two key posts have been created, this post being one of them.

This will include ensuring sufficient food and other resources are in place to support current and future need; recruitment, training and management of volunteer team leads and volunteers; regular communication with a variety of stakeholders; promotion of the foodbanks work to the media and local community, and on a regular basis online/social media and general administration.
To succeed in this role, you will require excellent interpersonal and communication skills; planning and organisational skills. The ability to deliver measurable results will be pivotal to the role.
This is a significant opportunity to make a direct contribution to fight against hunger and the deep and damaging inequalities in health and income.
