GAIN’s purpose is to advance nutrition outcomes by improving the consumption of nutritious and safe food for all people, especially those most vulnerable to malnutrition. In particular, we aim to improve the consumption of safe and nutritious foods for—at a minimum—1 billion people over the next five years and target major improvements to food systems, resulting in more diverse and healthier diets for vulnerable people in countries where we work.

The Senior Project Manager Food Fortification will work closely with the GAIN Nigeria Country Director and the TechnoServe (TNS) Strengthening African Processors for Food Fortification (SAPFF) team to deliver the enabling environment component of this project as well at the complementary GAIN-ENABLE project in Nigeria. 
The overall strategic objective of SAPFF is to increase the coverage of fortified foods, towards reducing undernutrition, averting deaths, and improving cognitive development in target populations. 

The ideal candidate will have extensive experience in developing and managing projects in nutrition, food processing, fortification, food science, or related areas and knowledge of best practice in quality assurance and control, food safety, and regulatory mechanisms. You will be competent in strategy development, advocacy, communications, and documentation of best practices. The ideal candidate will be required to develop and support staff on training, management of workshops and other public events and the ability to advocate, cultivate and negotiate significant senior level partnerships and relations and operate in high level meetings
