About the Role

The Chief of Staff is a leadership position reporting to the Executive Director, tasked with creating efficiencies across the organization and acting as a strategic partner to the Executive Director. The Chief of Staff will have responsibility for ensuring our programs are delivered, advancing our signature DefaultVeg campaigns and related public-facing campaigns to shift food cultures. The Chief of Staff will support the Executive Director in assessing strategic opportunities, creating program development roadmaps, and coordinating and directing our team of 8-10 people involved in campaigning, outreach and public engagement.

The Chief of Staff will be able to make balanced strategic decisions for the organization and will need to be connected to all our operations, assessing our internal capabilities and capacity for program delivery and ensuring we are delivering on our commitments.

We are seeking an experienced people-manager who is passionate about our mission and enthusiastic to help us
strengthen how we work and develop our internal systems to allow us to maximize opportunities to make impact
and deliver our strategic priorities. This is a remote based position.

About the Organisation

The Better Food Foundation incubates novel strategies for diet change, and our vision is a world
where plant-based food is the norm. We are a highly collaborative team with emphasis on all
voices. Our campaigns to change food norms are fast-paced and adaptive (current campaigns
target city food policies and the coffee industry). Professionals who take initiative, demonstrate
creativity, and seek collaboration tend to thrive in our organizational culture. Better Food
Foundation is part of a larger nonprofit collective that includes its sister organizations Farm
Forward and the Jewish Initiative for Animals. The ability to collaborate across organizations and
cultures on joint campaigns is highly valued, along with enthusiasm to continually learn about
the interconnected issues impacting our food system, including racism, worker justice, animal
exploitation, and ecology. We aim to be a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace.
