About this vacancy

Vegetarian for Life is the leading authority on diet and healthy living advice for older vegans and vegetarians. We work with a diverse variety of stakeholders, including some of the UK's biggest care chains and food suppliers; government; and partner NGOs, to support and protect older vegans and vegetarians.

As we continue to expand our work, we are looking to recruit to the post of Head of Research and Policy. This critical role will help to drive our lobbying, campaigning, advocacy, and research forward at a critical time for our organisation.

We are looking for an exceptional and passionate individual with proven experience of managing and developing successful integrated campaigns and campaign strategies.

The ideal candidate will drive our impact by using their skills and experience to effectively shape policy and research interventions. They will help Vegetarian for Life to make a real and tangible difference to the lives of older vegans and vegetarians across the UK – both now and in the future.

You will have experience of developing and implementing successful research and campaign proposals and activities.

You will understand how to drive public and media awareness to enable this.

You will be used to working with a variety of stakeholders, and will be a confident and effective communicator at any level – from the general public, through to business leaders, senior government, and regulatory bodies. Management experience is preferred.

Candidates will ideally be based in, or close to, either Greater London or Greater Manchester. The role will include regular travel to both cities and may include overnight stays. Other UK travel may be required, and you must be prepared and willing to travel for this role. The role will require regular attendance at the Manchester office.

In line with the charity’s core values, you should be a committed vegan or vegetarian.

  • From £17.95 per hour
  • In the region of 37.5 hours per week – though part-time considered
