Terms: Part-time 3 days a week, permanent contract
Salary: £22,500 p.a. (pro rata)
Start date: January 2019
Summary of role
The GFO Manager and Co-ordinator work collaboratively to achieve Good Food Oxford’s aims and objectives. They are supported on specific projects by the Engagement Facilitator. Although tasks are shared, the GFO Manager has overall responsibility and focus on organisational development, strategy, partnership building and new project development whilst the Network & Projects Co-ordinator has specific responsibility for building and facilitating the GFO network, public engagement, specific projects and areas of development, strategy and governance.
This is a role at the heart of the development of Oxford’s sustainable food network. Networks are built on relationships, so excellent people skills are essential. You will need to have a good feel for the needs and motivations of network members and the ability to communicate effectively both one-on-one and in communications materials e.g. emails, blogs and press releases. Great organisational skills, aptitude for and enjoyment of detailed administration, and some experience of project development and delivery is essential as the other aspect of the role is delivering a number of projects and events which are core to the GFO calendar. Since GFO is a young and developing organisation you will need to be resilient and creative, with an eye for finding solutions rather than problems. Good knowledge of food system sustainability issues is essential.
