One in eight people in the UK are going hungry every day. Yet, each year, two million tonnes of good food goes to waste.

FareShare is the UK’s biggest charity fighting hunger and food waste. And right now, it is looking for somebody brave to take on its biggest challenge to date: to become itsdirector of food.

This is a pivotal moment for FareShare, and you will lead its team of specialist food industry account managers to deliver an ambitious three-year plan for growth. You will see moving into the charity sector as a chance to drive huge social change and tackle food waste, while still working collaboratively with all the major businesses and trade bodies in the industry.

Your in-depth knowledge of the food supply chain – either from a retail or manufacturing perspective – together with strong relationship skills and innovative thinking, would make you perfect for this position.

The work is challenging, but vitally important. Because everything you do, every day, will ensure surplus food reaches people in need. In fact, you will be responsible for supporting more people living in food poverty than anyone else in the UK.

We see this as an opportunity too good to waste. If you do too, we’d love to hear from you.
