Overview of Social Bite:
Social Bite is on a mission to end homelessness through pioneering employment, food, and housing initiatives, originating in Scotland, and now replicating collaborative projects throughout the UK. Since the start of 2021 we have provided over 180,000 food packs and essential items to people in need; and exist to ensure everyone has a safe place to call home.
We built the Social Bite Village in 2018 to provide an innovative, highly supported community for up to 20 people affected by homelessness. This year we launched our aspirations to build two more villages in two new cities in the UK. We also lead national and international fundraising events to fund and lead long-term effective change such as Scotland’s Housing First Programme – a programme that will see more than 800 vulnerable individuals move into permanent homes in Scotland.

The successful candidate will have vision and will build a strategy for engaging existing and acquiring new community supporters, to unlock and build on the significant potential of this fundraising stream.
This role is a fantastic opportunity for someone who can apply their skills and expertise to this fast-paced, energetic organisation. The candidate will be organised, self-motivated and have a passion for fundraising, being creative and generating new ideas.
