Job description

TastEd (www.tasteeducation.com/) is a group of educators, writers and campaigners working to change the way that food education is taught in the U.K. and beyond. Our aim is to help build a generation of children who have a wider palate for healthy foods, especially vegetables and fruits, and a positive relationship with food and their own bodies.   We do this by providing schools with specialised training and a curriculum of fun, sensory based food lessons (grounded in the proven successful Sapere method) that the school can then deliver to their children.

The ideal candidate will be: • Motivated by Tasted’s aims and potential to make a real difference to children’s lives • Able to think and work creatively and strategically in order to help the charity grow and reach more children • Extremely organised and capable of efficiently carrying out administrative tasks • Able and comfortable communicating via email, over the phone and in person with a wide range of people, from children to headteachers to fundraising bodies • Numerate and capable of managing day-to-day banking and book-keeping
