Urban Roots is a thriving environmental and health improvement organisation working across the Southside of Glasgow.  This post is funded by the Scottish Government Aspiring Communities Fund and is part of a wider Foodbank Support Project, working with Glasgow SE Foodbank and Castlemilk Law and Money Advice Centre.  The aim of the project is to identify social and financial needs amongst foodbank users and provide targeted support to address these issues, with the objective of significantly reducing foodbank use. Your role will initially be to research current community food provision across the SE, including community meals, cookery courses, lunch clubs and community food growing projects.  You will work closely with the advisers and support workers employed on the project to support foodbank users to become involved with appropriate community food activities.

You will be based in the Urban Roots office in Toryglen, but the role will involve significant travel to both Castlemilk and Govanhill.

Closing deadline for applications: 5pm on 18th December 2017

Interview date: Wednesday 10th January 2018
