Buckinghamshire Food Partnership CIO (BFP) is a newly-established charity. We believe that all people in Buckinghamshire should have access to healthy, affordable, sustainably produced and culturally appropriate food. The food system is both complex and interconnected, so we convene, support and facilitate local groups to test collaborative initiatives and forge new ways of working. We bring together communities, businesses, charities and local authorities to realise a more sustainable and just local food system across the county.

Are you a superb strategist, passionate about sustainable food in Bucks?

This is an exciting time to join BFP. Having recently gained charitable status, we now need someone to help us translate our charitable objectives into a bold and actionable strategic plan. You will work collaboratively with our trustees, steering group, and other stakeholders to address some of today’s most pressing social, economic and environmental issues related to food. Using the Sustainable Food Places model, you will identify and build relationships with local partners across Buckinghamshire who share our vision for a better food system. Thank you to the Rothschild Foundation for providing the initial three-year funding for this role.
