We’re hiring – Creative Youth Event Producer
Food Foundation: Creative Youth Event Producer
Fixed Term/ £200 Per Day
May 2021 until August 2021
Purpose of the role
The Food Foundation is designing a two-day youth summit as part of ‘Valley Fest’, a family friendly food and music festival taking place in Somerset in the first weekend of August. The youth summit will be a chance for 80 young people working across a range of sectors relevant to food (e.g., climate change, farming, nutrition) to come together and discuss food system challenges.
Acting as Creative Youth Event Producer for the Food Foundation’s youth summit at Valley Fest, this temporary role will be responsible for making sure that every session we run looks brilliant and runs smoothly. You will also bring together all the branded assets and installations required for the festival and will be the lead events producer, planning and delivering with detailed production schedules and up to date running orders. You will be the main point of contact for the on–site production companies that run the stage, livestream, screens, and installations.
The summit programme will include talks and workshops from inspiring influencers, activists, business leaders and policy makers, providing young people with an opportunity to meet, discuss and even challenge these decision–makers. Alongside a full line-up of speakers, there will be other activities such as cookery lessons, art workshops and panel discussions. The young people will camp and be catered for on site as part of their experience.
As well as the 80 young people we will be bringing, the youth summit will be open to anyone attending the festival. It will have a particular focus on engaging young people about the range of issues connected to our food system and how it affects climate change.
This role will be joining a wider team of Food Foundation staff who are also working on the Youth Summit and will report into the Food Foundation’s Events Manager.
We’re an equal opportunity employer. All applicants will be considered for employment without attention to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, veteran or disability status.
