Stores Team Coordinator
Storehouse Foodbank: Paid Part-Time Position -2 days a week (15 hrs)
We are looking to recruit someone with passion and energy to join our growing Storehouse team, based at the Vineyard Centre in Sudbury, Suffolk.
Storehouse is the compassion ministry of Stour Valley Vineyard Church and has been serving local families and individuals in crisis for nearly 14 years. It has seen significant growth over the last four years as the number of people fed has more than doubled (2017:1,559 people; 2020: 3,910 people). The amount of stock items processed has also increased exponentially (2017: 38,115 items; 2020: 72,321 items).
Because of this continued increase, year on year, Storehouse is now looking to employ someone to coordinate, recruit and train the team of volunteers who look after the food donations and process them as they come in. Discipleship is an important part of all Coordinator roles at Stour Valley Vineyard because we recognise that our prime responsibility as a church is ‘to make disciples’ (Matthew 28:19). This is done through every area or ministry in church life, Storehouse is no exception, and so this role is also a pastoral one.
The Stores Team Coordinator would also be responsible for maintaining our public Donation Stations at local Supermarkets and cultivating a good working relationship with the managers of those supermarkets.
Storehouse has a strong relationship with the local community and keeps them updated on its fluctuating stock requirements through its Facebook page. Keeping the public well-informed through Facebook will also be part of this role.
