If you want to get more involved with local food and farmers' markets, why not work with us?
We quite often require managers or stand by managers for our markets. If there is a market close to where you live, it's quite possible that we need a manager to work there or to cover the existing manager when they are away. We also look for people to help with promotional tasks and administration in our office. All work is paid on a self employed basis and is very part time.
If you are organised, efficient, and enthusiastic, and enjoy working with people then you should enjoy the work. But you must be prepared to get up early as some markets start at 7 am. Some of the work is quite physical so you must be prepared to lift and move equipment. Working outside all the time means you must be prepared to get wet and cold as well as enjoying the warm sunny days.
Please send your CV to us with a covering letter explaining why you're interested in what we do. Our details are on the contact us section of the website.
