Now's the time to champion for #plantbased

Join our #MeatFreed team

Who we are

MeatFreed is led by
Patrick Huang and Mike Morris
who are part of the June 2021 cohort with Launchpad at Falmouth University.

Our vision:

Meat production accounts for 60% of greenhouse gases. We aim to accelerate the adoption of planet-friendly proteins including meat substitutes across all cuisines and all cultures.

Our mission:

Build community and movement that incentivises young people to choose plant-based. The increased adoption of plant-based from young people would drive the longest-term reduction in carbon emissions.

What we offer:

Members receive perks for exploring #plantbased when dining out and cooking at home. Members can engage with others like them on their plant-based journey.

Our culture:

We welcome those who are collaborative, dedicated, ready to listen first and challenge ideas, all while enjoying good food and good company!

Our Opportunities

As we are young and growing, we are excited to work with current and recent across disciplines that are just as passionate about our vision as we are to build our community. 

Note: All basic requirements could also include your own personal/non-professional experience. The ideal requirements for all roles is 1+ years of experience for each bullet point. But even if you do not meet the ideal requirements, we are seeking first for passionate individuals who are dedicated to the project so go ahead and apply! 

Our community consists of members, local businesses especially restaurants, and plant-based brands.
We are interested in empowering students to share our message to others and build our membership together with our support.
For a project, we are seeking students to achieve the following:
  • Define campaign and events as experiments to creatively engage with students across all campuses
  • Run campaigns and events by engaging with students and building our membership base
  • Share feedback about the effectiveness of experiments to then iterate on new experiments
  • Jointly identify potential partners for restaurants, chefs, and brands 
  • Jointly define strategy to conduct outreach for these partners 
  • Engage directly with these potential partners 
  • Communicate progress through our CRM
  • Some experience in building relationships or rapport quickly 
  • Solid written and verbal communication skills 
  • Some experience in creative ways to engage with people
  • Strong organisational and time management skills
  • Some experience in building relationships or rapport quickly 
  • Some experience in using systems like a CRM to communicate internally and track progress 
  • Some experience in the food industry is ideal but not required 

Application Process

We are open to remote work based on your schedule (we do the same!) 

Since we work often with students, restaurants and chefs, we are also often in the field like going door-to-door to build our community of restaurants or filming a promotional video for a restaurant owner. For the full experience, you will likely need to join or perhaps lead some of these activities, all while enjoying great food and great company with passionate foodies! 

We are interested to hear from you as to how much that you want to commit. We have scope for much more and we are flexible on what works for you related to your level of interest, your availability, and your expertise. 

Rate: £10 per hour as a contractor

How to apply: Applicants who are interested should apply using the application form below. We look forward to reviewing your application!
