What experience do I need?
You don’t need to have any previous experience – you just need to be brimming with enthusiasm for spreading the word about FoodCycle projects!
We’ll give you training and support, and you’ll develop communication skills that will look great on your CV – from managing social media accounts to finding great stories. You’ll also get training in some specific areas like working with the media.

You will also be offered the opportunity to complete First Aid, Conflict Management and Nutrition training, as well as being given access to lots of useful online modules such as Health & Safety, Leadership, and Mental Health Awareness.
This role is flexible and can either be done independently or in conjunction with cooking, hosting or surplus food coordination. The suggested time commitment is 8 hours a month.
