We have an excellent opportunity for an internationally focused communications professional to join the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition as Communications Manager.
The Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) is a Swiss-based foundation launched at the UN in 2002 to tackle the human suffering caused by malnutrition. Working with both governments and businesses, we aim to transform food systems so that they deliver more nutritious food for all people.
During the past year, the Communications Department has witnessed a large increase in the number of internal and external requests for support, mainly linked to the growing importance of nutrition in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, the need for GAIN to better communicate and disseminate information about programmes and projects and the desire to influence key policy decisions in the development/nutrition sector.
To respond to this growing demand, and to support the Communications team in developing and implementing a variety of global communications activities, we are recruiting for an experienced communications professional capable of transforming complex ideas into concise and accessible messages for a variety of audiences.
Reporting to the Head of Communications, as Communications Manager you will lead and oversee a variety of projects and contribute to providing strategic communications advice across the organisation. You will also deputise for the Head of Communications in periods of absence. Specific responsibilities include;
-Review and approve publications, reports and other communications materials to ensure that the GAIN Brand Guidelines are followed. Ensure that documents adhere to standards for quality, graphics, format and style.
-Write and edit a wide variety of texts for different audiences (governments, private sector, academia, etc.) and channels (web, social media, print).
-Provide opportunities to increase media outreach of GAIN’s events.
-Contribute to developing key messages, position statements, Q&A, news releases, etc.
To be considered, you should have solid communications experience, preferably at the international level in the private sector, or for large non-governmental organisations. You must be confident in developing and implementing complex communications strategies and be able to demonstrate experience across a range of communications activities including publication management, writing and editing, events planning, content production and media relations.
The Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition is committed to equality of opportunity and creating an inclusive environment where diversity is valued. We are keen to reflect the diversity of our society at every level within our organisation and therefore welcome applications from talented and committed people from all backgrounds, representing the diverse societies we operate in.
