The SCA is one of the leading Community Supported Farms in the UK. We are looking for new Core Group members who can bring expertise and skills to help run the organisation. We have an exceptional Farm Team who manage the farm, look after the land and produce nutritious, delicious food throughout the whole year, to feed SCA members. The Farm Team is supported by a busy ‘Core Group’ of trustees and part time staff who handle administration and finance matters. The Core Group have a governance and oversight role to ensure that everything is running smoothly.
Candidates will have different levels of experience but some of the skills we are looking for include leasing/property experience, HR, marketing and communications, subsidies, fundraising and finance. But above all we seek people with confident decision-making skills and an ability to see the bigger picture. Occasional hands-on support for one off events and unforeseen challenges may also be required. A genuine team spirit and enthusiasm for promoting the aims of the farm and the SCA community is a must. A start date is to be arranged. Being a member of the Core Group is an unpaid role, but it is a very rewarding and inspiring experience and to the right candidates it could be beneficial in developing personal career goals and interests.
If this sounds like you, please contact: – firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
No previous experience in agriculture necessary, although it would be a bonus! Being a Core Group member isn’t a permanent commitment; the Core Group members usually expect to serve for two or three years.
