Farm Director Position Available
We are seeking a visionary, strategic, and courageous leader to realise our ambitions for the next exciting chapter at Kentish Town City Farm.
Founded in 1972 by community action, Kentish Town City Farm (ktcityfarm.org.uk) was the first UK city farm and founded Social Farms and Gardens (farmgarden.org.uk). It continues to be led by local trustees and staffed and used by local residents. Its focus on reducing health inequalities; animal welfare and the importance of the environment and food production in local economies has become even more relevant during the public health emergency.
We are seeking a visionary, strategic and courageous leader to realise our ambitions for the next exciting chapter at Kentish Town City Farm. The Farm Director is the key figurehead for the farm, providing leadership to an experienced and inclusive team of staff and volunteers, and ensuring financial growth. You will share our passion for changing lives by bringing people together, and our belief that every person has a positive contribution to make to the farm.
Working with the Board of Trustees, the Director will continue development of the mission and strategy as a vital urban greenspace at the heart of a London community. With a well-established animal programme, in the future, we will further develop an ecological approach maximising the positive impact of wild spaces and growing places for our community.
