Do you share our vision of a UK in which everyone can live a full life, free from poverty?

Do you want to work as part of a team bringing about meaningful change?

This role offers the opportunity to grow the ‘Your Local Pantry’ network.

Church Action on Poverty helps communities to set up ‘Your Local Pantry’ member-run food clubs, run by volunteers for the benefit of their members in low-income communities.

A Pantry is a membership scheme aimed at helping people make their money go further by:

  • reducing food shopping bills,
  • providing advice and support;
  • developing skills.

Local Pantries mean people can bring down their food shopping bills, and access good food, whilst freeing up more money for other essentials and enabling tight budgets to stretch a little further. They mean that people can stay afloat in tough times, rather than being swept into debt, and also promote new skills, combat isolation and improve health.

You will work alongside other Church Action on Poverty staff and partners, within the ‘Your Local Pantry’ programme to support Pantry development and expansion across Scotland.

You will provide local partners with training, advice and support to set up operationally successful pantries within the ‘Your Local Pantry’ network; support funding applications for Pantry start-ups; and proactively seek out potential new Pantry partners across the country.

This is a 14 hour a week role for an initial 12 months working from home initially but eventually from Faith in Community Scotland offices in Glasgow with travel across Scotland. The salary equates to £27,455 pa pro rata over 12 months, plus a 10% employers pension contribution and generous holiday entitlements.
