FEEDBACK IS RECRUITING TWO NEW TRUSTEES

Key Information

We are looking to strengthen our Board by the addition of at least 4-5 new trustees by the end of November 2019. Our recruitment will be a rolling process; however we do anticipate two rounds, one before the main summer holiday period and one in the autumn. While ad hoc arrangements can also be made, we would encourage interested individuals to submit an expression of interest and CV by 18 July for the first round and by 20 September to be considered in the second round.

About the job

While millions still suffer from malnutrition or go hungry, a whopping one third of all edible food – enough to feed three billion people – is wasted each year. Since Feedback was founded 10 years ago, we have propelled the food waste scandal out of the shadows and into the spotlight.

Feedback is at an exciting time in its development. With a new Executive Director, Carina Millstone appointed in early 2017, we set a new Strategic Framework and Three-Year Plan to 2020 and have been expanding our work and impact.

IN PARTICULAR WE ARE LOOKING FOR EXPERTISE IN THE FOLLOWING AREAS:

  • knowledge of/thought leadership in the food sector
  • fundraising, including institutional fundraising
  • legal
  • media, communications and marketing;
  • advocacy and public policy development
  • campaigning strategy

If one or more of these areas applies to you, then great. If not so much, but you think your profile means you have something else to offer by being on our Board, we would also like to hear from you.

If you are or have been a charity trustee we welcome that experience. If you have not, we are very open to having the right person join a Board for the first time.

We are looking for people who can bring passion, experience, knowledge and insight as we set out anew on addressing the challenges our food system creates for the natural world we rely on. If you think this might be you, then please send us your expression of interest – including a brief statement about why you’d like to be considered and how you meet the requirements of being a trustee. Please send this with your CV to our Operations Manager: Claudia Rawlinson, claudia@feedbackglobal.org

If you would like an informal discussion about any aspect of the role and / or the organisation, please don’t hesitate to get in touch through Claudia above to arrange to speak to our Executive Director, Carina Millstone, or Glen Tarman, The Chair of the Board of Trustees.
