We’re recruiting! Chief Executive Officer

Healthy Living Platform are looking for their next Chief Executive Officer to help drive forward this exciting new stage of growth for the organisation. Healthy Living Platform has been working to embed food and sustainable lifestyles in communities across Lambeth for the last 2 years. The organisation, a registered charity, has gone from strength-to-strength and built a fantastic team of people along the way. From the continuing success of the LEAP into Healthy Living programmes for families; securing a long-term contract with Lambeth Council to deliver community surplus food initiatives across the borough; and a growing network of community pantries- we have put healthy food and community back into the heart of Lambeth and it’s networks. 


As Chief Executive Officer, you will be someone who relishes a challenge and looks for opportunities to build, grow and question. You will oversee the management of all teams and programmes, monitor and support the development of new projects and funding applications and build the organisation’s networks to enable and grow our future. You will be just as comfortable talking to external partners & managing budgets across projects as you are with talking to community members & attending large-scale events.


Why Healthy Living Platform? 

We are an organisation that values the assets and skills of both our team and the communities we work with. We come together with people to coproduce initiatives and projects from the beginning and we consult with our communities constantly. Every idea is listened to and we work collaboratively across projects. We are a small and friendly team of 10 staff members; plus a network of over 60 local volunteers and partners. We couldn’t do what we do without our community. Being part of Healthy Living Platform means being part of the future for sustainable healthy food, activated communities & thriving neighbourhoods.
