Paid positions

 

Sales Opportunity

Sutton Community Farm is London’s largest community farm, a not-for-profit social enterprise growing fresh vegetables using organic principles, as well as providing a shared space for the local community to cultivate skills.

We need to grow our VegBox scheme to 400 customers to help make our farm more financially independent, so we’re on the lookout for lovely people to help us recruit customers at markets and events within our delivery area.

While sales experience is preferable, great communication skills are essential! Self-motivation and a willingness to get stuck in are an asset.

Hours are event-dependent and mostly weekends. Additional canvassing is flexible and can be discussed.

Pay: Scaling daily commission

Deadline: This role is to start as soon as possible. Final application date 15 June 2017.

If you would like to be part of a friendly, community-spirited team growing a dynamic, flourishing farm and the local food movement, then please email vegbox@suttoncommunityfarm.org.uk, telling us why you want the job along with your CV.
