About The Felix Project

The Felix Project is London's biggest food redistribution charity and the largest end-to-end food redistribution charity in Europe.   

Our vision is a London where no one goes hungry and good food is never wasted.  

We rescue surplus food from businesses, supermarkets, restaurants and farms. This food is nutritious, in-date, and safe and includes a high proportion of fresh vegetables, fruit, meat and fish. If we did not rescue this food, it would be at risk of going to waste. Instead, we deliver it free of charge to London charities, schools, food banks, food hubs and other organisations serving people in need. Our food is a vital lifeline for children and families, people on low incomes, people who have lost their jobs, the homeless, refugees, domestic abuse survivors, the elderly and keyworkers.   

We were founded in 2016 in memory of Felix Byam Shaw, by his father, entrepreneur Justin Byam Shaw.

Purpose of the Job

Based for a minimum of 3 days per week in one of our operational warehouses you will help support Felix’s missions through the development of a network of charities, community groups and other key stakeholders involved supporting vulnerable Londoners across London. Your work will help to build the network’s capacity to accept and distribute food. 

The Community Coordinator role will also support the depot-based team responding to enquiries from the community network to help ensure the smooth flow of food whilst delivering excellent customer service. This will include ensuring recipients of our food are compliant with all relevant legislation and guidance as required by our food partners. 

Your work will help us to effectively monitor and evaluate our growth against our strategic objectives through robust data collection, monitoring and updating using our CRM system.

Please review our job portal for further details on the role, including job description.

  •  25 days annual leave per annum (+ bank holidays) plus up to 5 days additional leave for length of service.
  • Enhanced Maternity and Paternity leave.
  • Birthday day off.
  • Access to benefit platform for a wide range of discounts on everyday spends plus gym discounts.
  • Training and development opportunities.

The Felix Project recognises the positive value of diversity and is committed to creating a diverse and inclusive workforce.  We understand that certain groups (for example disabled people, women, and people from ethnic minorities) are less likely to apply to roles where they do not meet all of the criteria. For this reason, we actively encourage people to apply if they think they can do the role, even if they do not meet all of the requirements. We are also keen to encourage applications from those with identities that are currently underrepresented within the charity sector.

The Felix Project can only employ applicants who currently have the right to work in the UK.

Application information

Please apply via our recruitment portal. To apply, please upload your CV and a covering letter outlining your suitability for the role (and make sure that they’re both uploaded before submitting your application).

After you have submitted your application, you have 24 hours in which you can access you application and make edits. We suggest that you complete one last proof-read after submission and double check that your CV etc. is uploaded correctly.
