Job opportunity

The Food Ethics Council is looking for an experienced part-time project lead for our Farm animal welfare metrics project for a 12-month period. Our exciting new project to establish farm animal welfare as a key indicator of sustainable food systems aims to leverage the power of indexes to drive a ‘race to the top’ on farm animal welfare standards and practice in the UK (and beyond). We're looking for an individual with the ability to engage with key influencers, providing them with evidence to enable them to put pressure on the UK Government and Devolved Administrations to protect and further strengthen standards of farm animal welfare, and progressive businesses to improve farm animal practices.
You will set up and manage the project - conducting research, organising workshops and roundtables, liaising with senior stakeholders and doing advocacy work to promote both the uptake of ‘better’ animal welfare metrics and solutions to improve the UK’s animal welfare standards and practice. You will have a passion for farm animal welfare and sustainable food systems, and a keen interest in metrics. You will have experience engaging with key influencers. You will be self-motivated, able to work independently, and able to prosper as part of a small but dynamic team.
The deadline for applications is midday on 5th October 2017. For further details, including the job description and how to apply, please visit
