Communications Manager – GAIN – Geneva or London

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. In particular, we aim to make healthier food choices more desirable, more available, and more affordable. GAIN’s mission is to advance nutrition outcomes by improving consumption of nutritious and safe food for all people, especially the most vulnerable to malnutrition.

The Communications Department in Geneva 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 looking for a seasoned communications professional who will be able to manage projects independently, while being part of a global team.

Reporting to the Head of Communications, the Communications Manager will lead projects related to content production, media outreach, events, digital communications, writing/editing, and monitoring of communications strategies and results.

The ideal candidate will have extensive professional experience, preferably at the international level in the private sector (food industry) or for large non-governmental organisations. You must be confident in developing and implementing complex communication strategies targeting a variety of stakeholders at the global, regional and national levels. You will be required to manage projects in a matrix environment, and to deliver high-quality communication materials within budget and deadlines.

You should demonstrate experience in content production, event planning and management, website and social media publishing, and media relations at international level. You must be capable of transforming complex ideas into concise and accessible messages for a variety of audiences, and able to work with external agencies and consultants.
