Job description

We are looking for a Membership & Finance Administrator to support our work to promote food science and technology for the benefit, safety and health of everyone.

As our Membership & Finance Administrator, you will help run our financial activities – processing member transactions, issuing customer invoices, arranging to pay suppliers, reconciling transactions, and liaising with our accountants and auditors.  You may be familiar with Xero or another accounting package and payment platforms, like Stripe, but you don’t need to be an accountant!

You will also play a crucial role supporting our members by maintaining member records, processing information, sending communications and information.  Our members will find you a delight to work with.  You will probably have experience of membership or database systems or subscription-based processes.

We are a small team, so we all muck in to keep things running smoothly.

If you are interested in developing your membership and finance skills, join us to help put our ambitious plans to grow our membership into practise. 

TO APPLY just answer our three short questions and submit your CV.  We look at applications as we receive them.  If we think you could be right for the role, we will ask you to meet us.

No agencies please.


Our office is based in Hammersmith, London W6, and regular attendance at the office (2 or 3 days per week) is envisaged.

We are the UK’s leading professional body for those involved in all aspects of food science and technology. We are an internationally respected independent membership body, supporting food professionals through knowledge sharing and professional recognition.

Our core aim is the advancement of food science and technology based on impartial science and knowledge sharing.

Our membership comprises individuals from a wide range of backgrounds, from students to experts, working across a wide range of disciplines within the sector.

We are a registered charity (no 1121681) and a company limited by guarantee (no 930776).

IFST is guided in its decision-making and activities by its five values and through a strong commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion.
