Office Base: Norwood House, Fallowfield M14 but scope of post is national
Reports to: Chief Executive
Salary and Benefits:
Overall Purpose: VfL is the leading authority on diet and healthy living advice for older vegans and vegetarians. We are at an exciting stage in our development, with 2019 marking the charity’s 11th anniversary.
As we continue to expand our work, we have an opportunity to create the charity’s first dedicated advocacy and policy officer role. We hope to be joined by someone who can provide evidence-based campaign and policy proposals, and significantly increase the impact of the charity’s advocacy, lobbying and campaigning work to support older vegans and vegetarians throughout the UK.
Ideal for a methodical, strategic-thinking individual, with sound research skills. You will have proven experience of using policy, research, lobbying, and public campaigning to influence the public, government and industry.
Travel: The nature of the job will require travel to London at least quarterly and occasional travel further afield within the wider UK. The postholder will need to be able to meet this requirement. Travelling expenses will be paid for travel incurred in the course of duty (paid at Inland Revenue dispensation rate – currently 45p per mile, alongside the regular hourly rate of pay).
Duties and Responsibilities: The principal duties and responsibilities are listed in the job description and person specification. This is not an exhaustive list, and other duties and projects may be added when appropriate.
To apply, please send both a CV and covering letter explaining how you meet the job description and person specification. Please also outline how long you have been a vegetarian or vegan.
