Education and Community Worker
£20,810-21,552 (per annum pro rata)
21 hours per week (0.6FTE) with possibility of extending to 0.8FTE
Signpost International SCIO is a Christian charity committed to tackling the root causes of poverty and inequality, both locally and internationally. Our work focuses on four themes of: food security; sustainable livelihoods; water and sanitation; and global citizenship.
In March 2021, we launched the Roundhouse Community Kitchen which transforms usable, surplus food from supermarkets, greengrocers, farms, and other providers into freshly prepared, nutritious meals that are redistributed to third-sector food providers within Dundee. These organisations then distribute the meals to people engaging with their services, either as part of an emergency food parcel
or at an open-door larder session.
Alongside these meals the Roundhouse Café is becoming a gathering place for locals & community groups, addressing social isolation, food waste, and hunger simultaneously. Any profit from the café is reinvested to support the Community Kitchen and wider projects of Signpost International. Find out more about our work at www.signpost-international.org.
We are seeking an enthusiastic individual to deliver our local sustainable education and community based programmes to a broad range of people, while providing essential support to our ongoing food projects. This is an exciting chance to build on and shape existing activities while developing new opportunities to positively impact the lives of many.
Candidates will ideally have experience working with young people and different groups in educational settings, be enthusiastic about justice, climate, and food issues, and passionate about making a difference in the lives of individuals and in the world. Experience of working in a commercial kitchen environment or hospitality setting would be an advantage, though not a necessity. A good deal of creativity will be needed for the role, and the successful candidate will need to be a self-starter able to lead on a variety of tasks. We value our people and are more interested in the individual thana candidate ticking every box, so even if you don’t yet have all the skills but are a committed,
enthusiastic person with a passion for justice and making a real difference in people’s lives we would love to hear from you.
