Job: Community Mobiliser, Eating Better in collaboration with Healthy Food Healthy Planet, Remote with travel to London, UK


Advertiser's description (via Eating Better and Healthy Food Healthy Planet)

Eating Better and Healthy Food Healthy Planet have joined forces to create the role of community mobiliser, recognising the need to tackle inequality in the food and farming system and that we need greater diversity, equity and inclusion in our movement. This is part of a bigger initiative with national coalitions in Germany, France and the Netherlands to strengthen the civil society movement from the bottom-up. 

This is a new role to primarily help grow the diversity of our movement in the UK. We are seeking a values-driven self-starter, and energetic community mobiliser to help diversify our membership across different racial and ethnic groups, bringing in new voices and perspectives. You have excellent interpersonal skills, are an empathetic communicator, able to build and weave connections and make others feel valued. You have affinity with the objectives of Eating Better and Healthy Food Healthy Planet, and ideally know how to translate movement building and mobilising into more inclusive narratives, campaigns and ways of working.  

This will form the key part of your role, on average 4 days a week. You will be part of a small, core team reporting to the Executive Director at Eating Better. For one day a week you will be working with the Healthy Food Healthy Planet coordination team which is made up of the Chief Weaver, Fund Manager and Programme Officer. You will work with colleagues in similar mobiliser roles in Germany, France and the Netherlands. As part of this, you will share your experiences to cross-pollinate the movement, as well as convene a Community of Practice around the three key levers or entry points for change mentioned above: retail, finance and subnational governments. This will help build your thematic knowledge base - which you can bring back to the membership in the UK. For this part you will be supported by and working with the Chief Weaver of Healthy Food Healthy Planet based in the Netherlands.
