The main purpose of this role is to develop and manage waste and recycling for The Real Junk Food project across all venues in Birmingham, including an exit strategy and succession plan once the Love Brum funding for this role is exhausted, via a handover to a self-supporting team of volunteers. A secondary, but very important element to the job, is educating the public and volunteers about composting, foraging, waste management, and recycling – we envisage this taking place in the form of forest school-type environments and foraging walks.

The successful candidate will be responsible for working across all TRJFP Brum sites and devising a strategy to efficiently manage waste and recycling from the project, liaising with and motivating volunteers to help us in this process, including the beautification/maintenance of any composting/recycling facilities at each venue.

To be considered for this role you must have a keen interest in recycling, composting, and gardening, experience of working in an educational capacity (this can be voluntary experience), and experience of working with or managing volunteers.
