Are you a reliable, practical and responsible person who enjoys managing a team and thinking on your feet?

Growing Communities is a social enterprise based in Hackney that’s building a fairer, more sustainable food system by supporting local small-scale organic farmers.

We run a successful organic fruit and veg scheme in Hackney and the farmers’ market in Stoke Newington and we grow fruit and veg in Hackney and Dagenham. We help new entrants into farming and food production, and we campaign to make food and farming work better for people and planet.

We are looking for a Veg pack supervisor to carry out a range of administrative and practical tasks to ensure packing days for our organic fruit and veg scheme (Tuesdays and Wednesdays) run smoothly and effectively.
