£21,940 pro rata, 4 month fixed term position.
We are living through a climate emergency, where our actions and behaviours are having a devastating impact on the planet. ReLondon is a partnership of the Mayor of London and the London boroughs to transform the city into a leading low carbon circular economy and make London a global leader in sustainable ways to live, work and prosper – by revolutionising our relationship with stuff and helping London waste less and reuse, repair, share and recycle more.
To achieve this, we work with London’s businesses, boroughs and citizens to drive reductions in consumption-based emissions and make a significant contribution to tackling the climate crisis.
We are looking for a motivated, impact-driven individual looking to develop their skills and knowledge in the food and circular economy space to support the delivery of the Food Flagship Initiative.
The food and circular economy assistant will be part of the team delivering the Food Flagship Initiative which is a major three-year venture delivered by ReLondon, the Greater London Authority (GLA) and the Ellen MacArthur Foundation to demonstrate how a circular economy for food can be achieved in London. Building on work already being undertaken by the Mayor of London, London’s boroughs, and ReLondon, the initiative aims to design and deliver interventions and evidence-based policies to reduce consumption-based emissions from food and bring together a consortium of public and private stakeholders to implement pioneering circular food system solutions. The aim is to lead a transformational shift towards a healthy and sustainable food system, underpinned by circular economy principles.
The specific focus of the role will be to build the evidence around the interventions and policies needed to reduce the environmental impact of London’s food system and to support the team with the delivery of events and workshops with public and private stakeholders.
You will need a ‘can do’ attitude and an interest and enthusiasm for circular economy and food.
