Founded in 2014 by a small team conscious that one of the wealthiest cities in the world experiences food poverty and staggering food waste daily, City Harvest's goal is to connect all available surplus food with those who desperately need it.

City Harvest is now well established as London’s emergency response unit for surplus food, with our vans being recognised as symbols of hope for those facing hunger. To date, City Harvest has delivered 21 million meals, whilst offsetting food wastage and CO2 emissions.

We provide a lifeline of support for beneficiaries, not only through food but the social connection our food forges. The physical and emotional loads some have had to carry is astounding and City Harvest stands as a pillar of support for vulnerable Londoners. Through the long-lasting relationships with our 350+ charity partners, we have been able to reach millions. 

Demand for our food grows exponentially and we intend to be equipped to meet it. We have just moved into a new depot, significantly increasing our warehouse capacity, and have received strong support from our funders year on year.

City Harvest are looking for an Executive Assistant to join the team on a permanent basis, supporting the CEO and Founder.

The successful candidate will provide support and prioritisation with day-to-day management of the CEO & Founder’s work schedules and diary’s, liaising closely with Senior Management, Trustees, and external networks. There will also be the additional requirement to manage the ongoing HR administration to ensure employee records and paperwork are accurate and up to date.

The successful candidate will have demonstrable PA experience at a senior level. You will be a strong administrator with experience of communicating effectively with external key contacts. You will have solid IT skills and an understanding of HR systems and payroll/pensions linkages would be advantageous.
