Customer Happiness Team Member – Odd days


To apply for this job please visit

We are the UK’s fruit & veg box that fights food waste. We work closely with farmers & growers from all across the UK (& abroad), to rescue & fill up our boxes full of fresh, seasonal fruit & veg which are at risk of going to waste. The reason for this? They’re simply seen as too oddly shaped, too oddly sized, or even just – too many.

Alongside our 30,000-strong community, we help make a difference to the planet each week – fighting food waste at farm-level, preventing unnecessary CO2e emissions and saving water along the way.

ODDBOX is a Certified B Corporation and will continue to make a difference to our planet with each & every box.

This is a massively exciting and unique opportunity to join our rapidly growing and purpose-led company as we continue to fight food waste and prove that sustainability can be easy.

If you are passionate about making a difference in the world, and enjoy the challenge of working in a fast-paced, dynamic team, apply with a covering letter and your latest CV – we look forward to hearing from you.
