Job description

Leeds North and West Foodbank is a local Christian charity that is partnered with the Trussell Trust.  We are here to help people in our community, but we know that food is not the answer to poverty. A research report by the Trussell Trust “The State of Hunger ” in April 2020, demonstrated unacceptable levels of destitution experienced by those accessing support at Foodbanks across the country.  With the creation of a number of new posts, we have an ambition for our focus to change from providing emergency food parcels to working with partners across the city towards a future where Foodbanks are no longer an ingrained part of mass welfare and social support.  This is a really exciting time for us in this period of change.

We are now looking to appoint a full time Warehouse and Logistics Manager to join our team and become a key part of the Operational Management Team.  Reporting to the Operations Manager, you will co-ordinate the day-to-day management of the warehouse, liaise with our donor team to manage a regular supply of donations coming to the warehouse and out to our Distribution Centres and regularly update the team on items most needed to balance supplies.  You will have the ability to plan, manage and monitor a project, have experience of managing people but also working as part of a busy team delivering high quality customer service.  Possessing excellent inter-personal skills, you will be able to establish and maintain relationships as well as valuing others particularly when dealing with people from disadvantaged, marginalised and socially excluded backgrounds.

We are looking for a reliable, self-motivated Manager who is able to demonstrate enthusiasm for the work of the foodbank.  You must hold a full UK driving licence.

In return we can offer flexible working and a generous holiday allowance.

If you would like to apply for the post, please download an application pack.  No CV’s are accepted. The closing date for applications is 9.00 am on Tuesday 12 July 2022. Interviews will be held 20/21/22 July 2022.
