We are currently recruiting for a Programme Manager to join the team at the farm!
Kentish Town City Farm is a unique community resource – being the first UK City Farm, and founder of Social Farms and Gardens, the umbrella organisation which currently has 2,000 urban farms and community gardens. The Farm continues to be led by local trustees and staffed and used by local residents and volunteers.
Set in four and a half acres of land in the London Borough of Camden, with a range of animals and flora and fauna, we deliver our mission through a range of educational, horticultural and recreational workshops, volunteering, guided tours, riding lessons (our stable is currently closed and lessons are paused at this time) and visitor experiences of an urban farm. The Farm is a wonderful community resource providing opportunities for city dwellers to experience a taste of rural life close to home. Kentish Town City Farm currently has 11 members of staff to support our Farmyard, Administration and Educational activities.
We are at a pivotal point in our development with opportunities to grow our work, develop our partnerships with corporates, schools and the community and to redevelop our site and programmes with funding from the local council and Network Rail. This is an exciting time to join the Farm Team.
A wonderful opportunity to be involved in the management of London’s first City Farm. Working alongside other Farm staff, the Programme Manager will be responsible for the oversight of our community activities and events, coordinating our volunteering offer, and strengthening our education and training offer. You will be the go-to person for operational matters, ensuring our core activities and functions meet our strategic objectives, match our values, and are delivered to
a high standard.
Closing date for applications is Tuesday 13 February 2024, at 12 noon.
