The Felix Project is a dynamic London charity working with food suppliers and charities and schools to reduce food waste and food poverty. From small beginnings in 2016 with one van and one member of staff we are now delivering the equivalent of over 3 million meals each year.

Role: Head of Operations

We plan to expand our services and for the next 3-5 years this growth will initially be focused in London.  We already have a waiting list of charities and schools that we are unable to supply due to capacity or geographic constraints.

This is an exciting time to join our expanding charity and be instrumental in our future success.

As part of The Felix Project’s leadership team, our Head of Operations will be responsible for sourcing and developing supply partnerships, and successfully managing the operational side of the charity in order to drive our growth. 

You need to be confident in both the practical and strategic aspects the role requires, from food handling standards and health and safety requirements to operational forecasting and expenditure control. 

You will have leadership experience in the food industry, ideally in operations or supply chain, with a proven ability to manage external partnerships, implement operational processes, procedures and strategy, as well as the ability to manage high performing teams, preferably with experience of managing volunteers as well as staff.

You must be passionate about reducing both food waste and food poverty, have excellent communication skills and be able to work logically and efficiently while keeping volunteer, supplier and beneficiary satisfaction as the focus of what you do.
