ABOUT US

The Mayor’s Fund for London is a pan-London, non-political, independent charity, championing

opportunities for young Londoners from low-income backgrounds. We believe that all young

people, regardless of their starting point in life, should be able to thrive in their community,

forge fulfilling careers and are able to take advantage of the outstanding opportunities that

London has to offer. The Mayor of London is our patron.

Our work in the fields of food, wellbeing, numeracy, and employment raises awareness of the

barriers facing young Londoners, promotes activities which increase their opportunities and

brings together the partnerships to make a measurable impact on young Londoners’ lives. By

2025 we aspire to have improved the prospects of a minimum of 120,000 young Londoners.

In 2021, we supported around 40,000 young Londoners aged 4-24 across all 33 boroughs,

working in partnership with schools, charities, community organisations, local authorities and

employers.

 

PURPOSE OF THE ROLE

The Food and Wellbeing programmes work with a growing network of schools, local

authorities, and community hubs. We have corporate partners who fund the Kitchen Social

programme - to provide London’s young people with food and wellbeing activities. The Food

and Wellbeing Coordinator will build relationships with Kitchen Social delivery partners and

obtain their reporting data and feedback. The role will also support the team to develop the

food and wellbeing programmes and support with the coordination of Take and Make at certain

times across the year.

We are looking for a passionate individual who wants to make a difference for young Londoners,

who can provide coordination and administration support to the project team, ensuring effective and successful delivery of the projects. The candidate will have excellent written and

verbal communication, strong IT skills and a positive approach to their work.

Travel across London for meetings or visits to Kitchen Social hubs will be required and the role

will involve occasional evening and early morning events at both Union Street, where the staff

team is anchored, and at City Hall in the Royal Docks, so a flexible approach to working hours

is required. As part of hybrid working, staff will be expected to be in the office a minimum of

two days per week.
