If you are interested in a rewarding job with an established local charity involved in the relief of poverty, hardship and hunger in Stirlingshire then this could be the job for you! Start Up Stirling is seeking to appoint an energetic and compassionate person to a recently expanded role of Food Bank & Client Services Manager

About Start Up Stirling

Our charity began in 1994 when a group of local churches started to collect donated household goods and redistribute them to people who had been homeless and were moving into social housing. In response to growing local need we started our foodbank service in 2012 in an effort to tackling food insecurity and hunger. In 2017 we introduced an additional pilot service that offers additional tailored support for people experiencing hardship in Stirlingshire.

The whole operation, including our Board of Trustees, is run by volunteers (currently around 110), supported by a small group of paid staff. We work closely with a network of around thirty-five local referral partners, including Citizens Advice Bureau, Women’s Aid, Salvation Army, Rural Housing, NHS, Stirling Council and local schools to identify those people that need our support and help.

What are we looking for in a Food Bank & Client Services Manager?

We are seeking a well-motivated, confident and enthusiastic individual with proven team leadership qualities and a commitment to helping Start Up achieve its charitable objectives. The successful candidate will be someone who can coordinate our food bank services in an efficient and effective manner, and also collaborate with our partner organisation Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) Stirling and other local organisations in the development of our client support service
