CTG is a charity and company limited by guarantee and was established to provide relief to communities of Glasgow and its environs, who are in need due to age, mobility, mental and physical disability, illness and poverty. This is achieved by providing affordable, reliable, accessible transport solutions to the local communities we serve. CTG is one of the largest Community Transport Charities in Scotland.
Since March 2020, CTG has been working in collaborative partnerships with a range of organisations in Glasgow Food Programme to tackle the growing issue of food poverty. During the Covid-19 crisis, CTG was identified as an anchor organisation due to being an experienced transport provider with a remit to develop partnerships with other Third, Community and Commercial Sectors to assist with transport and logistic challenges.
One of the key collaborative partnerships developed was with the Scottish Pantry Network. This partnership has developed with CTG providing both passenger and non passenger transport solutions to the Network and its member Pantries throughout Glasgow.
Both organisations are continuing to work in partnership as we look to develop a long-term sustainable strategic partnership. Part of this is to develop a supplier and logistics framework for the pantry model to get more food into the surplus supply chain to help stop food going to landfill and to ensure the pantries are fully stocked so that people can access low cost healthy food.
Therefore, we are recruiting a Supplier Development Officer to be part of our team. The Officer will work closely with the Scottish Pantry Network.
If you like the sound of this challenge and want to be part of something that makes a difference to people’s life, have a good understanding of food poverty and insecurity, able to work across a number of partners and have project development skills, then we’d love to hear from you.
