Foodbank Network Area Manager - South Wales
As an Area Manager, you will work closely with a network of foodbanks as they deliver essential help to local people in severe crisis. You will help foodbank charities strengthen and broaden their practice, sharing expertise and initiatives that add value to foodbanks’ reach and impact. In particular you will help foodbanks reach beyond emergency food to deliver additional services under the “More Than Food” programme that help lift clients out of poverty. You will also act as the regional point of contact for a highly regarded and dynamic charity at the forefront of addressing and challenging poverty in the UK.
Operating as part of the Wales Network Team, the Area Manager will ensure the development of relationships with The Trussell Trust network of foodbanks in South Wales through ongoing support, assisting project development and delivery of quality assurance while promoting the More than Food programme across the foodbank network.
You will have excellent communication skills, and will be able to relate confidently to people of all walks of life with empathy and ease. You will be organised and be able to juggle competing priorities, often under time pressure. You will be an enthusiastic networker, skilled at negotiating benefits and support from external partners which will help the foodbanks in your region to thrive and succeed at every level.
If this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you as we work together to stop UK hunger.
