1. Senior Manager

Dream of working in a values-driven organisation where you can make a real difference? We're looking for a senior manager to join our small leadership team. You’ll contribute to overall decision making and direction as well as supporting the staff teams working on our projects. You’ll help manage various internal systems, leading on some areas of work as appropriate.

The central office is a vibrant and lively place to work, with a supportive team-working culture. As a small organisation we are dynamic and responsive, striving to improve our work and grow the business in a sustainable manner to achieve more impact, and ultimately helping to create a better food system.

Working within the Management team (made up of two Senior Managers and the Director) responsibilities for the following will be shared out:

  1. Project areas
  2. Business/systems functions
  3. Line management of a number of staff

We can be flexible with how responsibilities are divided within the management team, so if you’re someone with an interest in sustainable food systems, and experience managing staff and organisation systems we would love to hear from you.
