OxCo-op's weekly pop-up shop makes ethical food accessible and affordable in the Oxford community
Oxford Hub, 16-17 Turl Street
We are recruiting a new committee!
We need a brand new team to run OxCo-op this year! We are looking for:
1 x President: We are looking for one more president to co-ordinate and oversee the smooth running - and expansion! - of OxCo-op
1 x Order Manager: We need a manager to oversee orders and deliveries, making sure everything arrives on time.
Shop assistants: We need shop assistants to collect food orders on Thursday evenings and to run the pop-up shop on Turl Street on Friday afternoons from 3.30-5.30pm! It's a relatively laid-back role and shifts are flexible.
You are more than welcome to come along for a taster session to see what it's like to volunteer with OxCo-op. Sign up to get involved below, or email email@example.com if you have any questions!
What is OxCo-op?
OxCo-op runs a weekly order-and-collect service, taking orders of seasonal food boxes for customers to pick up at our pop-up shop on Turl Street. Oxford’s food co-operative is dedicated to making ethical food accessible to everyone, and we are looking for new volunteers to help keep the shop up and running!
Place your order on a Sunday evening by [visiting our site] and pick up from our pop-up shop on the 1st floor of the Oxford Hub on a Friday afternoon.
We rely on our amazing team of volunteers to keep us going, with a group of regular co-ordinators behind them to make sure everyone’s orders are packed and taken to our pop-up shop every Friday. Once you’ve signed up we can talk about what the role requires and if it’s something you think you’d be up for: you can also always shadow us for a week or two, and get a feel for what the shift is about.
More information on how OxCo-op works and what the shifts are all about can be found on the ‘How it works’ and ‘Get involved’ sections of our snazzy website, http://www.oxcoop.com. We’re also always looking for occasional volunteers, if you fancy sparing half an hour one week to get involved: if it’s any further incentive, after volunteering twice you can get a 10% discount on our products in shop!
Non-student volunteers are welcomed! If you're not a student and you'd like to volunteer with us, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
OxCo-op was set up 2012 by a group of friends who refused to accept that a student budget necessarily means a weekly shop to the local chain supermarket. Four years on the group has grown, connecting students from across Oxford to local organic veg supplied by Cultivate and organic/Fairtrade student staples from Bristol co-op Essentials.
Oxford Hub is committed to making our activities inclusive to all students. We can make reasonable adjustments to application processes, training sessions, volunteering projects and other activities, and can reimburse expenses such as bus tickets. We also provide ongoing support for the students we work with, so if you have particular accessibility needs, including special educational needs, please do get in touch at email@example.com and let us know how we can make the activity more accessible.
