About the position
We are looking for a Forward Food/EatKind Programme Manager - Maternity Cover, who will be responsible for overseeing HSI UK’s meat reduction/plant-based advocacy, delivering measurable impacts as a key part of HSI’s global ‘Forward Food’ programme. The position reports to HSI UK’s Executive Director and is guided by the Farm Animal Welfare department at HSI HQ.
We’re looking for someone who wants to build on the success of Forward Food, engaging and enabling caterers who serve thousands of meals each week to put more plants on plates. We’re looking for someone who can keep up to date with the latest evidence and translate this into actionable insights to drive positive change. And we’re looking for someone who’s organised, builds strong relationships and can effectively communicate both why and how to change the meals served up and down the country, to spare animals from factory farms, combat climate change and benefit human health. Managing and evaluating Forward Food to drive continuous improvements and demonstrating clear outputs will be key to success in this role.
With a positive ‘can-do’ attitude, you’ll have excellent interpersonal skills and be passionate about helping animals. You’ll thrive working as part of a small team but also be proactive and self-reliant when necessary.
