We are seeking a motivated Executive Director with experience of achieving change to lead the Eating Better alliance into its next stage of development. This is an exciting opportunity to join a small London-based staff team and this dynamic alliance of over 50 UK-based civil society organisations working together to transform the way we eat, for a fair, green and healthy future.

Launched four years ago Eating Better is working to influence governments, businesses, civil society and others who can make a difference to help people move towards eating less meat and dairy more food that’s better for us and good for the planet as part of the vital task of creating sustainable food and farming systems. Our campaigns, research and thought leadership are creating a movement that is engaging the public, business and policy makers to take action. Our current Executive Director, Sue Dibb, will be retiring in June 2018, after leading the organisation since its inception.

You will have experience of working with a wide range of stakeholders towards measurable outcomes for sustainable food futures in the UK, and of working with a small staff team and Board to develop and fund programmes of work to deliver on strategic objectives. You will be ambitious for Eating Better and its objectives, have excellent communication and advocacy skills and sound staff, organisational, strategic, fundraising and financial management experience.

Sue Dibb, our current Exec Director, says: “This is a fantastic opportunity to lead a dynamic organisation into its next phase of development. We have an ambitious programme of work ahead that will provide scope for innovative thinking and new partnerships and projects.  I’ve hugely enjoyed working with a dedicated team of people.
