PRODUCTION ASSISTANT: GROUND UP NUT BUTTERS

We’re looking for a supreme multi-tasker who is looking for the opportunity to get experience at a fast-growing social enterprise...and someone who enjoys working in the kitchen.

We want someone to jump in and help us with nut butter production. Currently we are a small team with one production manager, as well as a team of 5 or so women who assist. We are growing quickly, and need to bring on someone to help us manage our production days to effectively meet the demand. Your responsibilities would include:
*Assist in all aspects of the kitchen from mixing the nut butters to roasting coconut to filling jars
*Support kitchen team on production days to ensure goals are met
*Learn to operate kitchen machinery including mixing machine and filling machine
*Assist Production Manager in coordinating team lunches, stretch breaks, etc.—and all of the other things that help promote team morale!
*Assist in maintaining organization and efficiency of team / process during busy production days
*Ensure health, safety and quality standards are met
*Assist in managing the labeling process
*Transport raw materials back and forth from the warehouse (must be able to lift 30+ lbs and be on your feet for 8 hour days)

You are:
*A supreme multi-tasker
*Detail-oriented
*Organized!
*Motivated and someone who takes initiative
*Comfortable managing and working with a diverse team
*Interested in being a part of co-creating a more equitable food system
*Not afraid of machinery
*Able to lift 30 lbs
*Not allergic to tree nuts :)
*Experienced in working in a commercial kitchen (ideal, but not a requirement)

Commitment: 10-20 hrs / week *Potential for full-time work in other roles (See below)*

Schedule (varies):
Every Wednesday, 8 AM - 6 PM

The Production Assistant would need to be present at all production days, which currently includes every Wednesday. This position has the opportunity to grow into a longer-term, full-time position as the company grows, and as our current Production Manager moves on to go to grad school this fall.

Ground Up PDX is a small-batch nut butter company that employs women overcoming adversity to provide them with job skills and training to get back on their feet. We produce peanut-free, honey-sweetened nut butters in flavors such as Lavender Honey and Cinnamon Snickerdoodle. Our products are sold in New Seasons, Whole Foods, Fred Meyer, and other PNW retailers.
