Vacancy - FareShare Volunteer Fundraising and Marketing Team

FareShare North West is your local community food network, since 2008 we have diverted enough surplus “in date” food to provide over 1.5 million meals to over 55 community groups who support the vulnerable in our region.

Role Title: Fundraising and Marketing Assistants
Responsible to: EMERGE Education and Community Officer and FareShare Operations Manager.

We are starting a volunteer fundraising and marketing team whose role purposes are:
• To raise the awareness of FareShare North West
• To find new beneficiaries we can support
• To find more food manufacturers who can supply us with food which otherwise would have gone to landfill
• To develop and see through fundraising initiatives
• To be able to represent FareShare at events
• To develop and improve our website
• To add content to our website and blog as well as Twitter and Facebook.
• To design marketing materials
• To carry out administration duties.

Skills/experience required:
We are looking to create a large team of volunteers with different skills to work on a range of projects so please get in touch if you are interested in or have experience in any part of the above role. We are especially interested in recruiting volunteers between the ages of 16-25 years old.

One of the projects the team will undertake is to promote a fundraising event on Saturday 16th July 2011 where we are asking people to raise money for FareShare by launching themselves off the 30m high Imperial War Museum North, by zip slide, offering a thrilling 250m slide over the Manchester Ship Canal.

Expenses: We can reimburse reasonable expenses (up to £4 a day for travel and £3 for lunch).
Times of volunteering: Flexible. Minimum commitment of 8 hours but we hope volunteers will help on an ongoing basis.
Location: Based at EMERGE/FareShare Depot, New Smithfield Market, Openshaw.
Start Date: May 2011
Contact: Nicola Milner - 0161 223 8200 or via email.
