Ooooby Auckland is looking for a new team member.

We’re Hiring!!

Auckland Hub Coordinator and Manager 

Out Of Our Own Backyards – Ooooby’s mission is to put local small-scale sustainable farming back at the heart of the food system we all depend on. We have a rich network of local and organic growers and suppliers and pay them a fair share of the rewards.

Watch here:

Make a difference by working for a social enterprise on a mission to make the food system local and sustainable, have a positive impact on the world we live in and on people’s lives and health.

Ooooby offers a positive environment and meaningful work, with competitive remuneration, flexible hours, partial work from home, as well as staff discounts on produce and groceries.

The Auckland Hub Coordinator and Manager is the key person responsible to plan box contents, get food from our network of local growers and suppliers onto our e-commerce platform, into boxes and ready to be delivered to customer homes.

You are hands-on and will work proactively to keep Ooooby moving forward and bring new innovative ideas to the table. You are comfortable in an operational and logistics-heavy environment. There is no job too big or too small, and no person is too good for any job on any given day – hairnet anyone? Your strong work ethic and attention to detail means that operations and systems run smoothly, customers are happy and Ooooby’s larger mission is sustainably achieved.

Your personal values align with Ooooby’s values. You are ideally a health conscious, environmentally aware foodie. You live your life knowing the impacts of your own food choices and have a passion for organics and sustainable living.

If this, and what we stand for resonates with you, then you would probably be an awesome fit for Ooooby and we’d love to hear from you.
