BAPEN calls for new Sustainability Lead applications

BAPEN News

BAPEN is delighted to announce the formation of a new Sustainability Special Interest Group (SIG), which will focus on delivering our strategic priority to maintain BAPEN as a sustainable charitable organisation. As communicated in our 2022-2027 strategy, we are committed to considering and actively reducing our impact on the environment and influencing those around us to do similarly.

We are looking for a Sustainability Lead who, alongside BAPEN’s Executive team, will develop the SIG and subsequently be its Chair. The role will include representing BAPEN to the UK Health Alliance on Climate Change (UKHACC), as well as sitting on BAPEN Council. This is a brilliant opportunity to not only make a difference to BAPEN, but crucially to shape and implement important and necessary steps towards sustainability, something that is increasingly pertinent in health and beyond.

To apply for this position, please send a short CV along with a letter of interest to bapen@bapen.org.uk. The letter of interest should detail your suitability for the role and your initial thoughts on areas for action within BAPEN itself and the wider sector of nutrition care. These ideas should fill no more than a single side of A4.

The deadline for applications is 5pm on 26th January 2024.

Should you have any questions about the position, please do not hesitate to get in touch with either Dr Nick Thompson, BAPEN President, or Dr Dan Rogers, BAPEN Secretary, via the BAPEN Office to bapen@bapen.org.uk.
