Full Job Description

This is an incredibly exciting opportunity to lead our community food and growing work at SPYF. Through our Blackhill s Growing project, we are improving mental and physical health in our community. We bring people together and reduce isolation through creating and maintaining vital local greenspaces. We re improving the local availability of fresh fruit and veg and providing dignified access to emergency food provision in our community. Above all, we re supporting local people to improve their lives. This varied role involves managing our growing spaces including our new community farm, working alongside our committed volunteers, establishing and developing partnerships with local schools, updating and responding to social media posts, carrying out project monitoring and evaluation, managing our Social Enterprise Development Officer and coordinating our community larder and veg barra. A crucial part of this role will be to work with colleagues across the wider St Paul s Youth Forum team to maximise the ways we can help fulfil local need by adding value to other projects and activities which we run. This post will entail some evening and weekend working. For an informal chat about the role, please contact mel@spyf.org.uk., None specified

Established in 1997, St Paul’s Youth Forum (Scottish Charity no SC042570) works with young people and our local community in the north east of Glasgow to provide a wide range of opportunities. We run a range of activities from a youth radio station to a fresh fruit and veg barra, to weekly wood-fired pizza nights. Our ‘Blackhill’s Growing’ project is open to everyone from the local community and was set up in autumn 2015 following demand from the young people we work with. We enable local people to move beyond foodbanks by growing, cooking and eating together.
