Could you be our development dynamo in Falkirk?

Food Train is an award-winning voluntary organisation, providing practical and social support to older people across Scotland, helping them to eat well, live well and age well. We are launching a new branch of Food Train in Falkirk, offering local older people help and support via a range of services (shopping, home support, meal sharing, befriending).

If you’d like to help create social change, improve the lives of older people, work alongside local volunteers and help build a brilliant new branch of Food Train, then we’d love to hear from you.

Our Development Officers are our community champions; building partnerships and working with our members and volunteers to build the new branch and provide high quality support services. If you are looking for a role where no two days are the same, then consider joining our Food Train family and help develop our new Falkirk branch. Having a driver’s licence and access to a car for work purposes is essential to the Development Officer’s role.
