About Bite Back 2030 

Be part of the creative and agile team behind Bite Back 2030’s exceptional teenage activists. Join us as our new Communications Manager and contribute to a 10-year journey to help make the food system healthier and fairer and achieve our goal of halving childhood obesity by 2030.

We believe young people are the key voice in driving this change in our food system, and are growing a movement of young people to raise their voice and drive impact. In the past two years, our National Youth Board — including incredible campaigners like Christina and Dev — have won campaigns to extend free school meals during the holiday, end junk food advertising online and before 9pm on TV, and to improve the quality of school food. 

Biteback is strongly committed to a policy of Equal Employment Opportunity and is determined to ensure that no applicant or employee receives less favourable treatment on the grounds of gender, age, disability, religion, belief, sexual orientation, marital status, or race, or is disadvantaged by conditions or requirements which cannot be shown to be justifiable.
