Open Location at any GAIN Offices
Job Advert

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.

GAIN’s Programme Services Team (PST) supports the design, resourcing and implementation of programmes and projects which are technically sound, aligned with GAIN’s corporate strategy, and meet the needs of vulnerable populations.  These programmes include purposeful consideration of: the enabling environment, access to nutritious foods, and generating appropriate demand.

Under the technical and managerial oversight of the Director, Program Services, Cluster Directors work closely with Programme Leads, country teams, Policy & External Relations, Knowledge Leadership, and Finance. They have primary responsibility to lead on programming outside of GAIN country office locations and coordinate technical support to GAIN country office programmes. They hold a key outward facing role as GAIN ambassadors to partners, donors and beneficiaries, representing excellence in GAIN programming. They help galvanize donor support and provide a critical link between country operations and programming on resource mobilization.

The Targeted Dietary Improvement Programmes cluster comprises GAIN’s programmes and projects on Better Diets for Children (Infant and Young Child Feeding), Adolescent Nutrition, and Workforce Nutrition.
