We're recruiting for LONDON’S JUICIEST JOB! This is a peach of an opportunity. The chance to be our first ever Fruitful Coordinator. You’ll be doing genuine good, helping PIP students lead more independent lives. You’ll be combining business, creative, catering and people skills.
The role’s totally unique. Are you ripe and ready for the challenge?
PIP is a London charity helping adults with learning disabilities fulfill their potential. Fruitful is a major PIP initiative – a craft stall selling fabulous fresh fruit juices to Londoners. It helps our students take on responsibility, handle cash and engage with people. It’s set to be a big success. Are you the person to help us take it to the next level?
FROM LITTLE SEEDS
Fruitful is a PIP initiative that’s really taken off. We created a pop-up stall, managed by our students, creating fresh fruit juices for passers-by. It’s already proving a success and we want to establish it as a valued part of local life – with the ambition of opening further stalls across London in the future.
MAKE US EVEN MORE FRUITFUL
Are you the person to take the business forwards? Develop the pop-up concept from low hanging fruit to the top of the tree? We need someone unique for this unique job.
ARE YOU THE ONE TO PICK?
There’s never been a job quite like it. You’ll be overseeing the whole Fruitful project and that calls for a whole cocktail of talents.
This is a role for someone with the patience to work with people who have learning disabilities. The greatest reward will be seeing them flourish and gain in confidence.
You’ll need to be business savvy too – planning to make the stall a success on a weekly and monthly basis. You’ll be drawing up timetables, seeking out new locations, managing the finances, promoting the stall to the media and on social platforms.
You need to be practical enough to ensure all equipment is in the right place at the right time, and functioning properly. Every stall has to meet Health & Safety standards – and you’ll be in charge of that.
You’ll need to be great at negotiating the best savings on strawberries, and the lowest prices on pears. Someone who isn’t afraid of writing a business report and presenting it to PIP stakeholders.
You’ll be someone who would thrive in the Dragon’s Den. Someone who loves the idea of developing new ways to make a business grow.
And you’ll need to be someone who can nurture our students, help them grow and recruit new ones. Maybe you have experience already in the voluntary sector, or catering. Or both.
MAKE YOUR CAREER BLOSSOM
The PIP Fruitful coordinator will be responsible for the entire Fruitful Health and Wellbeing project. The core hours will be Mon-Fri, with some weekend and evening working over a 37 hour week. Salary will be £24-29,000 per annum. You will, of course, need to complete a Disclosure Check.
It is a wonderful opportunity for someone looking to expand their current catering career or work in the voluntary sector. You will develop business and entrepreneurial skills, practical management and marketing experience and create a wonderful case history for yourself.
Will you be the pick of the bunch?
The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
