The UK Food Group is seeking an experienced and committed Co-ordinator. The UKFG is a network of more than 40 environment, farmer and research organisations in the UK working on global food and agriculture issues.

They support their right to be part of decision making in the global food system at all levels.

Could you:

  • Lead and grow a network that brings together grassroots and civil society organisations in the UK and abroad that are working towards a global food system that can achieve fairness and sustainability?
