jobs and internships


We are a small team but do have job opportunities from time to time, which we will post here as well as on our social media channels and newsletter, so please sign up to keep up to date.

We regularly have internship opportunities.  We give you a chance to learn through doing and help you reflect on your learning as well as provide networking opportunities.  We provide internships with the garden team around horticulture and growing in urban spaces;  with the chefs in the kitchen to help cook and run our vegetarian cafe and events;  with the youth team to work alongside young people; as well as opportunities to work with the office team to gain experience of running a charity. 

freelance event chefs

Summer is a busy time for us with many events in the garden and beyond. We are looking for bright, talented and friendly event chefs to help us execute our events to the highest standards. You could be taking the food bike out to events around King's Cross, catering for weddings, private dining and summer parties. If you are a confident cook with prior experience of working in a busy kitchen come join us! 

This is a self-employment opportunity. You will be responsible for paying your own taxes and must be registered as self-employed or in the process of doing so.
