Do you want to be part of an innovative three-year project which has the potential to have major impact on addressing food insecurity in Scotland?


Oxfam Scotland, the Poverty Alliance, Child Poverty Action Group in Scotland and Nourish Scotland are recruiting a project team for our new partnership project ‘A Menu for Change’.


A Menu for Change, funded by the Big Lottery Fund Scotland, seeks to reduce the need for and reliance on emergency food aid in Scotland. The project will identify and work intensively in three local authorities with the aim of evolving the response to food insecurity. The project also aims to contribute to the longer-term prevention of food insecurity through additional research, national advocacy and community engagement activities.


The project staff team will be based across and employed by the four partner organisations.


We are looking for an exceptional Project Assistant to join our A Menu for Change project team (employed by and based at Oxfam Scotland). You will have at least two year’s experience in a project support role within the private or third sector which has involved administration, finance, monitoring and event co-ordination duties.


As well as your functional experience, you will also be an enthusiastic, confident, and highly organised individual, with a passion for delivering excellent levels of service at all times. You will have strong written and oral communications skills, drive and energy, and excel in paying attention to detail.
