The Mayor’s Fund for London is a non-politically aligned, independent charity which champions opportunities for young Londoners from low-income backgrounds. Our charitable activities are vital in addressing the inequalities deepened by the pandemic and the cost-of-living crisis. We deliver a suite of impactful programmes which help to safeguard and transform the life chances of young Londoners by supporting them with access to food, wellbeing, education and employment opportunities. The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, is our patron.
PURPOSE OF THE ROLE
The Mayor’s Fund for London is working with a growing network of local authorities, and community organisations. Funding for the Take & Make programme is currently provided by several corporate partners, alongside 13 of these London local authorities, which enables the Mayor’s Fund to provide thousands of young Londoners with food boxes for nutritional education and to support families dealing with food insecurity during the school holidays.
The Take & Make Coordinator will build relationships with delivery partners, our supplier and obtain their reporting data and feedback from buyers. The role will also support the food and wellbeing team to develop both Kitchen Social and Take & Make across the board.
We are looking for a passionate individual who wants to make a difference to the lives and wellbeing of young Londoners, who can provide coordination, logistical support, and administrative support to the programme team, ensuring effective and successful delivery. The candidate will have excellent written and verbal communication, strong IT skills and a positive outlook. Travel across London for meetings will be required as well as to our office in Union Street, where the staff team is anchored, and from time to time, to City Hall in the Royal Docks.
The postholder must have the ability to work flexibly throughout the delivery/busy school holiday periods so a flexible approach to working hours is required during peak periods. As part of hybrid working, staff will be expected to be in the office a minimum of two days per week.
