Part-Time Regional Coordinator Roles – Northland and Christchurch
Garden to Table is a small but rapidly-growing charity and we are now looking for 2 part-time Regional Coordinators in the Northland/Far North area, and Christchurch.
This is a 15 hour per week position (excluding school holidays) and an opportunity to really make a difference in the way our children think about food. You will be the local face of Garden to Table, supporting our schools with their kitchen garden programmes, developing strong community relationships that benefit our schools, and working collaboratively with other organisations.
You don’t have to be a skilled cook or gardener, but you MUST care about good, fresh produce and supporting children as they discover a love for the kitchen and garden. You’ll be an upbeat, collaborative and pragmatic problem-solver with a positive, ‘can-do’ attitude, who is willing to go the extra mile. You’ll be comfortable working with kids in a classroom situation and with school principals one minute, and talking to corporate sponsors the next.
Existing relationships with local community organisations is strongly desired, and presenting/training experience would be an advantage.
Key tasks include:
– Being the local representative of the Garden to Table programme and Garden to Table Trust
– Continuing to promote Garden to Table to the wider school community, including presentations to CoLs, Principals meetings, etc.
– Developing a vibrant community of Garden to Table schools through activities such as specialist meetings and teacher meetings
– Maintaining a relationship with ‘Garden to Table Model Schools’ and ensuring the standard of their Garden to Table programme is maintained
– Delivering centralized Garden to Table training to local schools, as outlined in the Garden to Table training manuals, to a required standard
– Engaging and collaborating with other community groups such as Enviroschools, Heart Foundation, local councils etc.
– Developing volunteer relationships to support Garden to Table schools,
– Being a local contact point for funders and sponsors, and developing local business relationships
– Promoting Garden to Table events that may be of interest to schools
– Highlighting and promoting fundraising initiatives within the local business and wider community, such as the GTT Garden Parties fundraiser.
You will also need to be a well-organised administrator who is comfortable with computers and computer systems, as ongoing administration and contact management is an essential part of the role. This is a work-from-home role so you will need to be a proactive self-starter, and you will need your own transport.
