Job Description

Job Title: Community Coordinator

Reporting To: Head of Community

Salary: £25,000 - £30,000

Contract type: Permanent


About The Felix Project

The Felix Project is London's biggest food redistribution charity and the largest end-to-end food redistribution charity in Europe.

Our vision is a London where no one goes hungry and good food is never wasted.

We rescue surplus food from businesses, supermarkets, restaurants and farms. This food is nutritious, in-date, and safe and includes a high proportion of fresh vegetables, fruit, meat and fish. If we did not rescue this food, it would be at risk of going to waste. Instead, we deliver it free of charge to London charities, schools, food banks, COVID food hubs and other organisations serving people in need. Our food is a vital lifeline for children and families, people on low incomes, people who have lost their jobs, the homeless, refugees, domestic abuse survivors, the elderly and keyworkers.

We are a very ambitious and dynamic young charity and we haven’t stopped growing since we were founded in 2016 in memory of Felix Byam Shaw, by his father, entrepreneur Justin Byam Shaw. We recently ran a very high-profile media campaign with the Evening Standard and Independent, raising £10million to feed London. We have celebrity endorsement from Reece James, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Jack Whitehall, Steven Fry, James May and many others.

Last year we delivered enough food for 21.1 million meals to help people in need. We have continuing major growth plans for the next 4 years, with a target of delivering enough food for 100 million meals by 2024. Because nearly all the food we receive is donated by the food industry and volunteers, every £1 of expenditure redistributes £10 worth of food. 

Purpose of the Job

The Community Team works within Operations focusing on the development, delivery and support of the Felix mission that no one goes hungry through the growth of the network of charities, community groups and other key stakeholders involved in the support of vulnerable Londoners. The Community Coordinator role will explore and develop partnerships with a wide range of organisations that will help to build the network’s capacity to accept and distribute food as we work towards distributing 42,000 tonnes a year, or the equivalent of 100 million meals by 2024.

You will identify, develop and deliver an end-to-end engagement service to our network of community organisations to ensure we are at the forefront of any service offering involving food for the vulnerable.
