Education & Careers Coordinator

We have created a new Education and Careers Coordinator role to help us in our work to support education and careers in the food sector.

As our Education and Careers Coordinator, you will support the delivery of our annual Education and Careers Forum and play a key role in taking forward the Forum outputs in the form of new projects and workstreams.

You will also coordinate our education related activities – looking after our student group, liaising with university contacts, recruiting university student representatives – and running individual and team competitions, such as Young Scientist and Ecotrophelia.

We are a small team, so we all help to keep the office running smoothly.

Larger than automotive and aerospace combined, our sector is the largest manufacturing sector in the UK.  We employ over 400,000 people.  If you are interested in educational systems and professional development, why not join us to promote food science and technology as an exciting, worthwhile and aspirational career path.

Send your CV and a cover letter to info@ifst.org.  We will look at applications as we receive them.  If we think you could be right for the role, we will ask you to come in to meet us.

No agencies please.

Membership & Finance Administrator

We have created a new Membership and Finance Administrator role to support our work to promote food science and technology for the benefit, safety and health of everyone.

As our Membership and Finance Administrator, you will play a crucial role supporting our members by maintaining member records, processing information, sending communications and information.  Our members will find you a delight to work with.  You will be a whizz at databases, and you will have experience of membership or subscription based processes.

You will also help run our financial activities – processing member transactions, issuing customer invoices, arranging to pay suppliers, reconciling transactions, and liaising with our accountants and auditors.  You will probably be able to teach us a thing or two about Sage, Xero or some other accounting package.

We are a small team, so we all help to keep the office running smoothly.

If you are interested in developing your membership and finance skills, join us to help put our ambitious plans to grow our membership over the next few years into practise.

Send your CV and a cover letter to info@ifst.org.  We will look at applications as we receive them.  If we think you could be right for the role, we will ask you to come in to meet us.
