Status: Self-employed
Rate: £7.60 per hour
One-year contract
Closing date for applications 25 January 2017.

Sims Hill Shared Harvest (SHSH), one of Bristol’s exciting local food projects, is looking for someone to help recruit new members.

About Sims Hill
Sims Hill Shared Harvest is a community supported agriculture scheme (CSA). We use natural growing methods and permaculture principles to produce high quality vegetables for the people of Bristol. Sims Hill is in Frenchay, just two miles from Bristol city centre and is part of Bristol’s Blue Finger.

The veg is delivered to pick up points across the city where members collect their weekly share. It’s similar to a veg box scheme, but instead of paying directly for veg, members pay a monthly fee to cover the running costs of the business. For this commitment they get a regular weekly share of the harvest.

Sims Hill also offers opportunities for education, work and recreation, supports people who are socially or economically marginalised, and builds community by creating a relationship between food and its production.

About the Role:
In 2017 we need to grow our harvest share membership. We’re looking for someone who will help us achieve this goal using a variety of means including public engagement, working with our existing members to brainstorm new recruiting ideas, social media, blog posts, etc. Help us tell our story!

This role will report to the Sims Hill Board.
