At the British Nutrition Foundation, our vision is that everyone can access healthy, sustainable diets. We are contributing towards this through our mission of translating evidence-based nutrition science in engaging and actionable ways. In all aspects of our work, we aim to generate and communicate clear, accurate, accessible information on nutrition, diet and lifestyle, which is impartial and relevant to the needs of diverse audiences, in particular the general public, the media, government, schools, health professionals, and food and beverage companies.

The British Nutrition Foundation is now looking to appoint an inspiring, self-driven CEO who will galvanise our wide-ranging stakeholders to lead and deliver an ambitious new strategy for the charity. You will bring a track record of shaping and executing strategic change, leading and developing high performing teams and organisational management.

You will lead, and further develop, an enthusiastic team of scientists, educators and communicators while maintaining the values of integrity, quality, positivity, and collaboration. The new CEO will work closely with an energetic and ambitious Board of Trustees in leading the Foundation on its next stage of development, at this exciting time of change and opportunity. With the increased focus on diet and heath, especially during the pandemic, the need for, and value of, our services has never been greater.

Reflecting the diverse communities that the British Nutrition Foundation are proud to support, we are committed to finding a CEO who is dedicated to furthering diversity and inclusion within the charity. We actively and warmly encourage applications therefore from a broad and deep range of backgrounds and experiences.
