Compensation: In the region of £35,000 per annum FTE
Paid Full-time Part-time Flexible hours Permanent Remote working
In order to capitalise on the growing interest in pasture-fed ruminants from policy-makers, academia, the food & farming community and general public, the PFLA is looking for a day-to-day Communications Manager to build out our core capability. This new role will suit an individual who has strong experience in marketing and/or communications but is still looking to learn and develop their skills, and who wants to make a name for themselves by working in a purpose-driven role. We are particularly looking for someone who has a keen eye on consumer facing communications and an ability to present potentially complex information into a succinct and easily accessible format suitable for a wide range of non-experts.

Specifics of the role
We are looking for a full time position, however, we can be flexible down to four days per week for the right candidate.
The salary will be in the region of £35k FTE, again with room for flexibility for the right candidate.
The PFLA is a nationwide organisation and its active Directors, volunteers, and current staff members work from home so the Communications Manager will be expected to make their own working arrangements. A computer will be provided, if needed. Team communications are currently held through Zoom and other media, with occasional face-to-face meetings. The successful applicant will be expected to travel for which expenses may be claimed. They will need to be able to work on their own, but also to communicate effectively with the wider PFLA team, ensuring everyone is pulling together in the same direction.
Anyone interested in this role can write to Jimmy Woodrow, PFLA Executive Director at firstname.lastname@example.org with their CV and a covering letter stating their interest and explaining why they would be the best person for the job.
There is no deadline for this role and we will interview candidates who meet our criteria and only hire when we feel we have met the right person. We are ideally looking to have the candidate in post from early October.

About Pasture-Fed Livestock Association (PFLA)
The PFLA is a movement of farmers, butchers, retailers and others that champions the practice of feeding cattle, sheep and other animals in the UK and Ireland wholly from pasture, and as an integral part of a thriving regenerative food and farming system. The PFLA has developed the Pasture for Life certification as a means of verifying farms who are meeting these standards. The PFLA aims to have farmers move towards these practices by educating them about the benefits of this system, encouraging a supportive academic and policy framework and developing routes to market that demand produce from these systems.
