Our mission is to create and support a network of Growers across the Upper Murray and North East Victoria, to build resilience through a closed food loop in our local area.
We share knowledge, tools and skills allowing people from all walks of life an opportunity to grow their own food business with minimal outlay and supported collaborative sales channels.
Our goal is to use regenerative farming practices and world-class small-scale farming innovation to enable local communities to grow their own food sustainably.
The Operations Manager is responsible for the ongoing development, implementation, and delivery of the Acres & Acres project to support our strategic direction. This role will work closely with the Board, other senior team members and external partners.
With support from the Director, this role will provide some project support including but not limited to: veggie box marketing, sales & distribution and operationalising a new, direct-to-the-public, on-farm nursery.
Nice to haves:
Clear and empathic communication - it’s impossible to work together as a team if individual members don’t fully understand one another, communication skills are imperative for anyone working in our team environment.
A collaborative approach - interest in working with others to align on our solutions to food system challenges.
A holistic view - willingness to learn about the big picture. When we understand the interdependencies across the entire food system, we lead positive change more effectively.
An openness to new perspectives - by expanding knowledge and networks to include those outside of your immediate area of expertise, we change the way we work and think and drive greater impact.
An innovative mind - good ideas don’t require a stroke of genius, but rather a clear line of sight, creative thinking and a willingness to learn through failure.
Critical thinking - with constant change in the food system, leaders must understand how to solve problems. Leaders with fresh ideas and the ability to apply concepts across disciplines will be essential to move initiatives for a hunger-free, sustainable food future forward.
