We're Hiring: Referrals Officer

Our dream is that every child in the capital has the essential things they need to thrive, and that everyone can play a part in achieving that goal.

Are you passionate about tackling child poverty and motivated by Little Village’s values of Love, Solidarity, Thriving and Sustainability? Do you believe in our model of bringing families together to help each other? Would you enjoy working in the fast-paced environment of a small, ambitious and relatively new organisation?


Little Village is like a foodbank, but for clothes, toys and equipment for babies and children up to the age of 5. We’ve grown to be one of the largest ‘baby banks’ in the UK, supporting over 17,000 children since we launched in 2016.  Families are referred to us via a network of over 2,000 professionals such as midwives and social workers.

As a volunteer powered movement of parents committed to alleviating child poverty, Little Village’s vision is that every child in the capital has the essential items they need to thrive.


We are now recruiting for a Referrals Officer to expand our existing Referrals team. You will ensure a seamless delivery of referrals administration to support family provision year-round, and the effective running of the referral process from start to finish, ensuring we support as many families as possible in line with our values.

This role is for 24 hours week, with a salary of £28,500 per annum FTE. Many of our staff work flexibly in many different ways, including part-time. Please talk to us at interview about the flexibility you need. We can’t promise to give you exactly what you want, but we do promise not to judge you for asking.

Note that this role will require a DBS check.


We are working towards a goal where our team fully reflects that diversity and difference in lived experiences and strongly encourage applications from under-represented groups including: people from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic backgrounds, LGBTQ+ people, people with disabilities, people with lived experience of poverty either personally or through family, experience of the care system, non-graduates and first-in-family graduates. As part of our commitment to fairer recruitment, all applications will be assessed without names and any protected characteristics.


The deadline is 7 July at 9am and all the information on the job and how to apply can be found here.
