Hubbub is seeking a Project Lead to join our dynamic food team in Somerset House, Central London. This is a brilliant opportunity to increase the impact of our food work and creatively input into the development and delivery of our campaigns to increase access to sustainable, healthy diets.

Hubbub is an environmental charity which designs positive, playful campaigns that inspire people to make healthier and greener choices. The food hub uses the charity’s creative approach to support a transition towards more sustainable diets in order to address significant health and environmental challenges.

Examples include seasonal food waste campaigns like Pumpkin Rescue, collaborative, cross-sector initiatives like Food Savvy, and the Community Fridge Network, and targeted interventions such as Meat Your Match which successfully challenged young gym going men to halve their meat consumption.

The Food Project Lead will work across projects, contribute at every stage of the process from proposal writing, pitching, design and development to delivery and monitoring, reflecting on project performance and suggesting developments for the future.

We’re looking for a great team player and project manager with a strong knowledge of environmental and food issues and an ability to keep projects and communications on track whilst exploring new ideas.

WE'RE LOOKING FOR THE FOLLOWING SKILLS/EXPERIENCE

  • University degree or equivalent.
  • Significant project management experience, including budget management, stakeholder engagement and project planning.
  • Passionate about, and has knowledge of environmental issues and issues relating to our food system such as food waste, health inequality and food security.

  • The ability to support the work of a small team as well as to work independently.
