Roles

Warehouse Assistant

Help us to keep the warehouse running smoothly by sorting and storing the food that comes in and out safely. Help to make up the orders for our community members and gain lots of warehouse team experience, you may even be able to get some forklift training.

Delivery Driver

Without you our food can’t be delivered to our community food members, to be made into meals for those who need them. If you are over 25 with a full clean driving licence, give us a shout. We provide training and support in driving out 3.5 tonne vans. If you are an experienced van driver, or want to gain experience, we can help you help us.

Delivery Assistant

Join our drivers out and about getting food to where it is needed. If you are happy to get physical in moving the food- better than the gym, and can help with navigation, this could be the role for you.

Operations & Admin

A mixed role helping us to make sure that all our food is logged correctly and that our delivery notes are ready to go out with the orders. If you have an eye for detail and want to gain some office and I.T. skills, this is the role for you.

Marketing & Communications Assistant

From time to time, we need support in keeping up our social media and marketing programmes. If you are looking for a career in marketing, this could be the role for you.

Development Team Assistant

An exciting opportunity helping the FareShare Cymru development team to grow the impact of our work across Wales. You could be doing research, helping build our volunteer team, getting more food members on board as well as supporting the team with admin. A great chance to build development skills, office skills and admin experience.

Community Group Link

You’ll be a link between our members and our operations team; carrying out kitchen checks, asking for feedback on the service, as well as informing them on nutrition and food safety. You could carry out this role mostly from your home and only a few times a month.
