We are seeking a dynamic and efficient volunteer to support the operational aspects of our new social enterprise – The Real Jam and Chutney Company – helping us to deliver orders of Jam and Chutney made by people with a learning disability to customers in Hampshire & Dorset.

Who are we looking for?

Building positive working relationships with customers, staff, volunteers and the people we support, we’re looking for someone who really enjoys meeting and engaging with people and who thrives on offering polite and efficient customer service.

Volunteers will have use of a hybrid, automatic company car for deliveries and will need to hold a full drivers licence. Due to the nature of the role, some heavy lifting is required so volunteers should be reasonably physically fit.


As a guide, we would welcome help at times to suit the Volunteer on either a Wednesday or a Thursday each week.
