We work to create a fairer more sustainable society, starting with the food system. Working alongside communities, farmers, policy makers and activists, we aim to create radical social change, addressing problems at their root cause. We establish, incubate and support progressive initiatives that are not only helping to transform our city’s food system, but which also demonstrate the potential for a radically different food economy. Our innovative, co-operative enterprise models include FarmStart – an incubator initiative for new organic growers, Manchester Veg People – a co-operative of veg buyers and growers; and Veg Box People – an organic box scheme.
We are now at a critical and exciting stage in our development. We are seeking a highly motivated, driven individual to join our small, committed team to improve our overall effectiveness and help us create the change we need in our region’s food system and beyond.
The Strategic Development Worker will be responsible for monitoring and improving the efficiency and performance of our individual projects and enterprises and crucially, for helping Kindling develop an overall strategic plan for our Manchester-based work over the next five years, involving multiple partner projects and stakeholders.
The role will also involve relationship building with stakeholders to grow and strengthen our base of support, and building Manchester’s sustainable food movement through the Feeding Manchester network.
