About Shift and healthy fast food Shift is an award-winning charity that harnesses design thinking to help tackle social problems. Our programme of work aimed at reducing childhood obesity has been running for more than seven years, with a recent focus on the role of takeaway in increasing access to affordable, healthier food.
About the venture Following a successful pilot of a healthier everyday takeaway concept in 2018, we received long-term funding from Guy’s and St Thomas’ Charity to establish a new venture in South London. This social enterprise was launched in November 2019 with a mission to provide a delicious, convenient and affordable alternative to unhealthy local takeaway options. The menu has been created for busy young families on a budget and draws on flavours and culinary traditions from the Caribbean, Italy, West Africa and the UK. We place great importance on both the development of our team, the quality of food we provide, our customers, and on a responsibility to our neighbourhood and wider community.Over the next 18 months, we’re working to prove there is sufficient demand for the concept and establish a viable long-term business model.
About the role Shift is looking for an experienced, entrepreneurial and enthusiastic lead for this healthy fast food venture, who will take day-to-day responsibility for delivering against the launch plan. The role will have two areas of focus: general management of the existing food business and business development to build the future of the venture. As Venture Lead, you’ll oversee the running of the day-to-day operations, working in partnership with our Chef-in-Charge and Kitchen Assistant to ensure fantastic food and an exceptional customer experience. Your business development responsibilities will see you driving local sales through Just Eat, Uber Eats and Deliveroo, increasing brand visibility on and offline, and driving volume sales for a new catering offer.
