Unpaid Volunteer Flexible hours
Are you a Marketing professional who would like to put your skills to use in a small charity enterprise and make a real difference? We are looking for someone who has experience of bringing new products to market to help us launch a new food enterprise. This will enable us to continue feeding the homeless and vulnerable in North London.
About AMURT UK
AMURT UK is a grassroots disaster relief and community development organisation. Our projects focus on food poverty, food waste and healthy eating. We produce and distribute hot meals and protein dense snacks to the homeless and other vulnerable communities in London. Services are run almost exclusively by volunteers. We also run Food For All health food shop and herbal dispensary, a trading company that donates its profits back to AMURT UK.
We have developed a raw protein and nutrient dense snack that we give out to the homeless and those who are experiencing food poverty in North London. These snacks are delicious, healthy and supporting homeless people and people currently facing food insecurity. We are going to start selling them to the public to make this charitable activity self-sustainable and have won some investment to help us move forward with our plan. For every two snacks sold another will be given to a vulnerable person. This is a new enterprise for us.

Our office at 3a Cazenove Road, N16 6PA and online. We expect a lot of it to be able to be done remotely but it would be helpful for the successful candidate to be able to visit the project and meet the team occasionally in person.
