Vegetarian for Life Request

Organisation Description

Vegetarian for Life (VfL) is the leading authority on diet and healthy living advice for older vegans and vegetarians. Since there are currently only two fully vegetarian care homes in the UK, one of VfL’s major goals is to improve the standard of vegan and vegetarian catering in existing homes.

What are they looking for?

We are looking to recruit new members to our board of trustees who meet up to six times a year via video conferencing, or in Greater Manchester. This is a voluntary role – with expenses paid. We are looking to recruit a vegetarian or vegan who has considerable experience and skills in commercial, third sector, or statutory partnership organisations at management level. This experience might include responsibility specifically for treasury management or the organisation’s commercial function. You will be committed to the aims of VfL, and able to articulate the contribution you believe you can make to furthering these aims, recognising VfL as an organisation with an important role to play in the health and well-being of older vegetarians and vegans. You will understand that to pursue its aims effectively, VfL requires good management, including well-supported staff who have opportunities to develop.
