The Bread & Butter Project

General Manager

The Bread and Butter Project is seeking a General Manager to report directly to the Board and oversee the enterprise, driving growth as well as operational excellence and deliver on all commercial, operational, and social goals.

Who we are

The Bread and Butter Project is Australia’s first social enterprise bakery. We are an artisan bakery, delivering handmade bread and pastries to Sydney’s fine food purveyors, selling to retailers, cafes, restaurants, caterers and grocers, as well as direct to the public at various weekend markets around Sydney.

The Bread and Butter Project is seeking a General Manager to report directly to the Board and oversee the enterprise, driving growth as well as operational excellence and deliver on all commercial, operational, and social goals.

Although we operate as a commercial business, as a social enterprise, 100% of our profits are reinvested into baker training and employment pathways for people seeking refuge and asylum. It's a simple but powerful formula - the more bread and pastry we sell, the more refugees we can assist.

The Bread and Butter Project has provided 55 trainees with full time paid employment as well as on-site TAFE and ESL training, and accommodates up to 30 new trainees every year. After graduating, 100% of our trainees have moved into sustainable and meaningful employment. We have experienced significant growth and are looking for a GM who can lead Bread & Butter to even greater success.

This is a fantastic opportunity to lead a high-profile, dynamic and rapidly growing social enterprise.

An experienced leader is required to work closely with our Sales and Customer Service, Operations, Finance and Human Resources teams and ensure timely and consistent delivery of artisan bread and pastries each day across all of our distribution channels.

The General Manager will also act as an ambassador and advocate across stakeholders, including customers, refugee/asylum seeker support agencies, funding partners, TAFE, external auditors, and volunteers. In this highly visible role, the General Manager will be called upon to represent The Bread and Butter Project at public engagements, media and industry events.

Requirements

We are looking for someone with eight or more years of cross-functional leadership and P&L experience, ideally in the baking and/or food processing industry. Experience in a senior role in a social enterprise or not-for-profit is also highly regarded. Hands-on experience in continuous improvement and operational excellence is essential.
