Register your Interest

Are you looking to use your HR background to help a dynamic local charity? Would you enjoy helping us to improve our HR processes and procedures? 

Livestock is a charity that works within the community, running arts groups, events and performances to support, educate and entertain.

The main project is Mothers Uncovered which is a creative support network for (mostly new) mothers. It is to provide a support service to mothers through workshops and arts projects. We give women the chance to talk openly and honestly about their feelings and experiences, without fear of judgement. It is also to give women the chance to celebrate and mark this point in their lives. 

The charity also presents SoulFood - community food workshops. SoulFood runs events in schools, food banks and community centres to get participants excited about food and feeling confident in sharing food skills and ideas.

Lastly, our thespians present events and m/others uncorked which is immersive, improvised shows dealing with social issues.

We are looking for one or more people to help us in reviewing and enhancing our HR processes in a number of areas. In particular we are looking for support in:

  • Reviewing and creating various policies and procedures
  • Carrying out a staff audit, looking at current roles and training
  • Reviewing our HR systems and making suggestions about how improve them

We are flexible about how these tasks are achieved and would be interested in hearing from you if you are are interested in taking on one of them as a project or are looking for a broader role, for example as a trustee.


We are looking for people who are enthusiastic about helping us reshape various aspects of our HR and also who have:

  • Experience of writing HR policies, processes and procedures
  • Knowledge of basic IT packages
  • Good attention to detail
  • Ability to work independently

We also would love you to have a passion for the work we do, whether it is for the Arts or Food aspects.


This role will give someone the opportunity to: 

  • Be involved in a growing local charity
  • Learn new skills and gain experience to strengthen your CV
  • Have all expenses paid

Practical Considerations

We provide our services across Brighton, Hove, Adur and Worthing.  It doesn't matter where you live, as the role can be done from home. Of course, that means you would need access to a computer, phone and broadband at home. 

When do I need to be available?

Details This position does not require hours at a specific time, and the time commitment would depend on the scope of the specific tasks being undertaken. This could be a minimum of 2 hours a month up to 2+ hours a week, depending on what suits. You would need to be flexible enough to 'meet' with staff from time to time to discuss the tasks and what's needed. This will probably be done remotely and we will do our best to fit it around your other commitments - including evening calls if that works best for you.
