We’re recruiting: join our veg bag team!
We are recruiting an administrator to work one day a week, helping to run the Enfield Veg Co. veg bag delivery scheme.
Since November 2013, Forty Hall Farm has run the Enfield Veg Co. vegetable bag delivery scheme, delivering fresh organic produce to members in Enfield. At present, we deliver produce to over 90 households, dropping off at collection points across the Borough. Much of the produce is grown at Forty Hall Farm, with other organic produce being brought in from local growers and farmers.
We are seeking a highly organised and enthusiastic person to help run Enfield Veg Co. The main purpose of the post of administrator is to deal with the customer side of our small business: helping to promote and advertise the scheme, dealing with customer enquiries, managing the scheme’s membership and producing the bag’s weekly newsletter and other communications.
During 2018, we hope to expand our veg bag distribution to a minimum of 120 customers and the successful candidate will be expected to support this expansion.
It is expected the role will take between 7 to 10 hours per week, split over at least two days. The role is office based at Forty Hall Farm. The administrator will be required to work every Wednesday morning, from 09.00 – 13.00 but there is some flexibility about when the remaining hours are worked.
No previous experience is necessary but experience working with a box scheme or similar community-supported agriculture scheme would be a distinct advantage, as would be an interest in marketing and/or social media.
The post will be based at Forty Hall Farm, Forty Hill, Enfield EN2 9HA.
The successful applicant will be employed on a casual employment contract and will be paid £10.28 per hour (made up of a salary payment of £9.18 per hour plus an annual leave payment of £1.11 per hour).
