Job Details

We are seeking a financial expert on the Board of Trustees, leading the financial strategy and ensuring the financial stability and governance of our organisation.

Feedback is an environmental campaign group that regenerates nature by transforming our food system. To do this we challenge power, catalyse action and empower people to achieve positive change. We believe that securing nutritious, delicious food for all should go hand in hand with safeguarding our environment. The problem is that both producing and selling food have been captured by big business with terrible consequences for our health and our planet. Food production is the single greatest impact humans have on the environment. It is a huge driver of climate change; for example, meat and dairy alone generate more greenhouse gas emissions than the entire global transport sector. Agriculture drives deforestation, drains fresh water reserves, depletes soils and contributing to species extinction at an alarming rate. Yet we waste around a third of all food produced every year, squandering precious resources on food that is never eaten. Feedback is part of a fast-growing movement that is helping people seize back control of our food production and diets. We are piloting real alternatives to our current food system, and we campaign to call out big business where we need to, and push governments to make positive changes. Join us and be part of the solution!

Company

Feedback is a London-based environmental campaign group. We work to regenerate nature by transforming our food system. Food production is the single greatest impact humans have on the environment. From mountains of food waste to habitat destruction to grow animal feed for factory farms, to soil depletion leaving future harvests at risk: the food system needs to change.  Founded in 2013, we combine investigative research, campaigns, community outreach and on-the-ground pilot projects for a better food system.

Feedback’s projects are funded from a wide variety of sources, including statutory and lottery funding, funds from a variety of trusts and foundations and individual donations.  Project activities include campaigning, consultancy, grant making, internships in the sector, gleaning, food processing and retail.  As well as our London headquarters, we have projects based in Liverpool and Brighton and will shortly be opening a small office in the Netherlands.

More information can be found on our website http://feedbackglobal.org/.

We are a friendly team, priding ourselves on maintaining a positive and values-led organisation. We aim to provide a flexible working environment with a good work/life balance.   Feedback takes its responsibility for the development of staff roles very seriously and will develop a career path within the organisation where possible.
