Job Title: Project Manager - Global Food Systems

Working For: The Food Foundation

Location: London

Salary: £35,000 pa

Job Details

A key role leading the delivery of our global engagement work on food systems with young people, businesses and city leaders at critical international events over the next two years.

The Food Foundation is a young, dynamic, impactful and charity working to influence food policy to support healthy and sustainable diets. Working at the interface between academia and policy makers (parliamentarians, civil servants, local authorities) and businesses, we use a wide range of approaches to make change happen including events, publications, media stories, social media campaigns and multi-stakeholder partnerships. We also work directly with citizens to ensure their lived experience is reflected in our policy proposals. We are independent of all political parties and business, and we are not limited by a single issue or special interest. We work with others who believe there is a problem with the system and want to change it. We have a terrific and dedicated group of trustees and expert advisers who support our work.

Our food system accounts for a third of all greenhouse gas emissions and plays a critical role in deforestation and biodiversity loss, both of which are contributing to rapid climate change. Our diets are the largest single contributor to ill health globally. These outcomes are no longer sustainable and are prompting policy makers to consider how the food system can be re-engineered to deliver better outcomes for people and planet. The Food Foundation is playing a leading role in the UK in developing policy proposals which can help to re-orient the food system to deliver better outcomes. The UK’s food system is intimately related to the global food system, as half of the food we eat is imported from other countries. This project will take the UK’s experience and leadership to a global level to help to drive change internationally.
