Community Shop is the UK’s first social supermarket, and one of the UK’s top social enterprises. Based in South Yorkshire and offering a competitive salary and generous benefits package you will be leading the development of an innovative social enterprise, currently serving communities in South Yorkshire and London and aiming to expand across the UK.
Community Shop offers great food at discounted prices to those that need it most and also provides access to professional and personal development programmes to kick-start positive change and enable the creation of more cohesive and connected communities. Each Community Shop has three independent spaces; a store, a development hub and a kitchen and social eating space.
The Director will work closely with the MD to devise and lead on the delivery of future strategy and drive growth, income and social impact. This is a complex leadership role requiring experience of working at board level in a social enterprise or charity, experience of driving social impact, developing income and funding opportunities and representing the organisation with a wide range of stakeholders and supporters.
