International Food Information Service (IFIS) is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to improving access to trustworthy information about the sciences of food and health. Our primary audiences are researchers in academia and product developers in companies. We provide educational materials and training, as well as publish a database curated by a team of subject experts (www.ifis.org).
We wish to recruit a trustee who has a background in company finance and pensions to our Board. The role involves  contributing to the strategic direction of our organisation and  ensuring that management are delivering relevant and effective support to our audiences. We are looking for someone who is currently in a senior role in a food company. No previous experience of serving on a not-for-profit Board is required as we will provide training.
This is a voluntary role that involves attending quarterly meetings and providing occasional advice and support. Attendance can be virtual but we prefer the trustee to attend at least one meeting in person each year. Travel and accommodation expenses will be provided. Our offices are 25 minutes from London Heathrow.
