About the role
As a Member Pioneer, you’ll bring people together in the communities around our food stores and funeral homes.
You’ll get people talking about what matters most in your local community and work with Co-op Members, Co-op colleagues and the local causes we support to tackle issues and get things done.
We’re really flexible about where and when the activity happens, but you’ll work between 8 and 32 hours a month depending on how big your community is, and get paid an hourly rate of £7.61.
