Business Manager

Who we are

The Country Food Trust is a national charity with rural roots that produces meals and donates them to people in need. We recently reached our target of one million meals in our first five years and are driving ahead with an ambitious plan for our next five.

We currently make two types of meal using pheasant: a casserole and a curry, which we’ve developed alongside top chefs to address the lack of protein in most food donated to food banks. Our meals don’t need to be refrigerated, can be eaten cold if needed, and have a long shelf life too, meaning that they can be given to anyone in food poverty needing a nutritious meal. We also deliver meat to charities who cook for people. We are currently looking at other exciting areas for expansion in our food production and have plans to grow our charity and build on the amazing success of our first four years. For more information see our website:

The charity currently has two employees: a CEO and a Relationships and Events Manager, as well as a fantastic network of the 50 Ambassadors (volunteers) who help the charity pursue its aims around the country.


What we’re looking for

We are looking for a dynamic, initiative-driven and superbly organised team player to help us out with managing the administration side of our charity. You’ll be confident enough to deal with a huge range of people at every level, articulate and diplomatic and with a naturally positive outlook. This is a very varied role, so you’ll be naturally flexible in your approach and happy to help out with anything from moving chairs to manning our stand at a country fair. As you’ll also be managing our day to day financial administration too, you’ll need a strong eye for detail and a process-driven brain. Finally, it’s imperative that you’re intuitive and a quick learner; confident to ask questions until you’ve understood something but then happy to go away and do it yourself.

We’re a very close-knit team, so it’s important that you’re totally reliable and trustworthy, and happy to be flexible where needed. As this is a home-based job you will be highly organised with a head for creating order, innovative and a real self-starter. As we’re such a small charity (but with grand ambitions!) you’ll have a real chance to shape this role into whatever you want it to be, so we’re looking for someone who’ll bring new and fresh ideas on how we can develop and improve our processes, with the wherewithal to put those improvements into action. We’re looking for an organisational dynamo; someone that can take an idea, go away and come back with a decisive plan.

We’d love it if you came from a charity background, but your skills and personality are the most important thing. What’s crucial is that you’ve had at least five years’ experience in a senior level administrative role.


Job Description

This role combines the administration of the charity, some operational, fundraising and communications support and managing our day to day financial processes.

It’s imperative that you’re strong in the whole Microsoft Office suite – Outlook, Teams, Word, Excel and PowerPoint. If you’ve worked with Xero, that’s a big advantage, and familiarity with Salesforce, Mailchimp and WordPress would also be a bonus, but not essential.

The role includes but is not limited to:


  • General administration – first point of contact for all supporters, donors and charities
  • Managing correspondence – answering enquiries emails or forwarding on to relevant parties, writing letters, collating reports as required, answering phone calls
  • Management of cloud-based filing system and paper filing for correspondence that gets sent to the office
  • Managing and updating the Salesforce database
  • Managing orders and distribution of food to charities, keeping track of stock in warehouses and own supply, creating delivery requests and cross-checking against proof of deliveries
  • Assisting with the organisation of events and attending where necessary
  • Keeping an inventory of all assets and property owned by the charity, ensuring an adequate supply of marketing material at all times
  • Arranging and managing all paperwork and details around quarterly Trustee meetings and management meetings, note taking and minute writing for these meetings (in person or via video conferencing)
  • Charities Commission compliance


  • Running our relationship with HMRC
  • Managing the day to day financial operations of the organisation using Xero, including:
    • Logging donations
    • Creating purchase orders
    • Creating and paying invoices
    • Creating receipts for payments or donations
    • Bank reconciliation
    • Logging gift aid

Fundraising support

  • Providing administrative support for fundraising and communications campaigns, such as logging donations and contacts and sending out emails or marketing materials
  • Managing fundraising platforms.

Any other duties that are reasonably required.


Further Information

The role is full-time, 35 hours per week and is home based, preferably with proximity either to London or the South West. It reports directly to the CEO. A full driving licence is required.

Salary: £28,000 – £32,000, depending on experience. A pension scheme is available.
