The details…

This role would be helping prepare and deliver Hempen’s M&E in and around the Berkshire area. It would be preferred if you have a driver licence and your own vehicle to set off from our HQ, just outside Reading in Oxfordshire, with all your products and kit. Once at the M&E you will be setting up and selling our products as a stallholder.

We are seeking to work with someone who lives locally to us, as this would make leaving for the market in the mornings or night easier. Though, if you are keen to open up a market or event near to where you live, we can discuss how this could work. Sometimes setting off for a market can be as early as 7am.

For this role, we can provide in-depth training of our products and wider hemp industry knowledge, as well as general sales training.

Taking our stall to local events and markets, see remit here. Taking our stall to London markets and events, see remit here.

VOLUNTEER

Come volunteer with us! At Hempen, we host volunteers local for a day or if you’re visiting for up to 3/4 days on your first visit. We have always hosted volunteers from our very first days, back in 2015. We find it’s a wonderful way to meet new people on a similar journey, to connect, and sharing our passion for all things hemp.
 
We are a worker’s co-op based near Oxfordshire/Reading. You’ll need a tent or your own sleep-in van/car. It’s all the usual small farm things you would expect… helping grow veg, weeding, compost making, communal cooking, to packing and labelling our products. Plus lots of chat about how awesome hemp is, and trying to get hemp into every meal!

Update: We have measures in place to safely host volunteers at the farm in ways that meet public health advice.
