The Food Commission is looking for a new director following the departure of Dr Tim Lobstein.
Lobstein, who has been director of the Food Commission and editor of The Food Magazine for 15 years, has led innovative campaign work and played a leading role in pushing food and health up the public policy agenda.
He is now moving on from the Food Commission, to focus on international obesity policy, with the International Obesity Task Force and the World Health Organization.
Successful candidates will need vision, ideas for how to use the Food Commission's voice for helping to achieve a healthier, more sustainable and equitable food system, and sound financial and organisational management.
The role is on a part-time basis for three days per week (flexible) for an initial contract of one year, with a three-month probation period. This position is offered at a full-time equivalent rate of between £25,000 and £30,000 per year, paid on a pro rata basis. This contract may be extended, and the salary reviewed, subject to fundraising.
Applications must be received by May 8, 2006.
