Employer Bio

Feeding Liverpool is the city of Liverpool’s food alliance; connecting and equipping people and organisations to work towards good food for all. Building on their work since 2015 tackling hunger and food insecurity, Feeding Liverpool lead Liverpool’s Good Food Plan in partnership with communities and organisations across the city.

Job Summary

They recently announced that their current Director, Naomi, is leaving them for personal reasons. They are therefore looking for a new Director – someone who can pick up their story from the last 8 years and shape the next chapter.

This is an exciting time to join their movement. The organisation is in excellent health – they have secure and stable funding, a creative and dynamic staff team, a strong Trustee Board and a fantastically committed group of partners and member organisations. Liverpool is full of inspirational people, active in building a city based on good food for everyone – whether that’s those who experience food insecurity on a day-to-day basis, health workers, growers, restaurateurs, or those working and volunteering in community food initiatives. Their work is led by their voices. They view themselves as pioneering, with their alliance-based approach a national exemplar.

But they have lots to do. Liverpool still has high levels of food insecurity, stark health inequalities and a community food movement that is vulnerable to food inflation and supply issues. Their new Director will continue to shape and influence the way the food system works to develop and grow their community food movement, and grapple with the complex causes of food supply and insecurity.

They would refer potential candidates to their website for stories, reports and strategies that outline their approach, but they have developed a detailed job description and person-specification which outlines the character and competencies they think they need.
