As London and South East Area Manager you will represent, manage and co-ordinate FoodCycle for your allocated regional Projects and partnerships (such as franchises and London food distributors Felix and City Harvest), as well as line manage the two London Regional Managers and London Support Project Officer to ensure that London’s KPIs are met. Your role will also work with the Head of Programmes and CEO to roll out a London wide strategy to ensure we open Projects taking into consideration organisational aims and goals.
Our Projects are spaces where volunteers are empowered to run their own community meals using surplus food. You will oversee local relationships with supermarkets, volunteer recruitment channels and venues to enable this to happen. You will continually be looking to increase our impact by working towards targets of increased meals served to our guests, expanding our existing Projects and setting up new ones within London. An excellent communicator, you will manage the volunteers at each Project ensuring they are trained, supported and on-message with FoodCycle strategy, ensuring that volunteers are confident enough to self-organise and make a success of their Projects.
