Employment Opportunity: Global Coordinator, Demand Creation Alliance (DGA)

  • Location: London, UK
  • Salary: From £45,285 – £48,536 per annum, dependent on experience
  • Contract Type: Fixed Term
  • Duration: 36 months

The Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) is now recruiting for a dynamic and entrepreneurial Global Coordinator to join our London office and operationalise the Demand Generation Alliance (DGA). This is a fast-paced role with a variety of tasks and responsibilities across multiple management domains, and it will play a key leadership role in ensuring that the DGA operating model runs efficiently. This role is offered on a three-year fixed term contract and will involve occasional travel to GAIN offices as required.

About GAIN

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.

About the Role

The Demand Generation Alliance is a new initiative, incubated by GAIN, that recognizes that there is a critical space to address consumer demand. Demand cannot be created by one factor or one actor alone, so we see a need for multi-stakeholder, cross-sector collaborations to shape and respond to consumer demand and enable better choices for the future. Demand relies on consumers valuing and preferring nutritious and sustainable foods; it cannot just be legislated.

The Global Coordinator role is a fast-paced, entrepreneurial position with a variety of tasks and responsibilities across multiple management domains. The postholder will have the opportunity to set up and operationalise the DGA, with the support of Lead Group members, by June 2024. The Global Coordinator will play a key leadership role in achieving this outcome and in ensuring that the operating model runs efficiently.

Specific Responsibilities include:

  • Leading and managing Lead Group meetings and DGA Management meetings internally
  • Developing workplans that efficiently distribute tasks and resources adequately across the fiscal year
  • Managing procurement process/request for proposals, including supervision of work, workflow for review of deliverables by Sr. Programme Manager or Lead Group members, and payment processing
  • Ensuring that external service providers are hired in a timely manner to execute the operational strategy of the DGA
  • In collaboration with the Lead Group, coordinating the activities of interns or fellows
  • Ensuring that advisory reports and deliverables from service providers are shared with Lead Group members, in an easy-to-understand format and in timely fashion
  • Developing a database of potential funders
  • Ensuring that generated by the Communications Manger adheres to the communication strategy and plan
  • Ensuring all DGA communication channels are well managed, including regular posting of relevant content
  • Budgeting and forecasting
  • Coordinating meetings and engaging with potential funders
  • Ensuring that the communications plan is produced and well managed

About You

You should have experience in setting up an alliance, initiative or membership organisation, alongside experience in people management and budget administration. You should also have excellent organisational skills and be able to efficiently use management tools (e.g., GANTT charts/SPRINT process). Underpinning all of this should be great teamwork and leadership skills, as well as a clear and analytical mindset. Experience of working in a public/private partnership would be advantageous.

In addition to the above, candidates should be qualified to Bachelor’s degree level or equivalent in Management, or alternatively have an equivalent level of relevant work experience.

About Our Offer

The starting salary on offer for this role is from £45,285 – £48,536 per annum, dependent on experience.

The start date for this role, to be agreed with the successful applicant, will not commence until after the 1st January 2022.

GAIN has a fair and competitive salary structure that allows for annual progression subject to good performance. In addition, GAIN offers a total of 37 days holiday per year (including annual leave, public holidays and additional office closure days), an attractive pension scheme and competitive insurance cover including health, travel and life assurance.

We are committed to the health of our staff, especially in these challenging times, and have developed a programme of wellbeing that includes flexible working, additional leave allowances, wellbeing days, mindfulness coaching and access to independent and confidential counselling.

GAIN also has a strong commitment to professional development. We will support you to grow in your career through both formal and informal training and are committed to providing opportunities through internal recruitment, secondments and promotion. All of this is delivered in a supportive and collaborative environment.

About Us

At the Stephen M. Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan we have a diverse learning community grounded in the principle that business can be an extraordinary vehicle for positive change in today’s dynamic global economy. For more information on Ross, visit michiganross.umich.edu/.

The Office of Action-based Learning (OABL) helps Ross students develop their leadership talent through action-based learning programs that connect the world of ideas to the world of practice. Action-based learning is a creative, interactive experience that integrates individual preparation, team-based projects, and classroom discussion. These learning opportunities come in the form of the Multidisciplinary Action Projects (MAP) Program or Masters of Supply Chain consulting projects – project-based courses in which a team of students address a business challenge on behalf of the sponsoring organization. The organizations range in size from Fortune 100 corporations to small entrepreneurial firms. This collaborative process benefits our students, faculty, and global organizations.

You will provide leadership for the cultivation and sourcing of over 200 action-based learning projects each year across almost every degree program at the Ross School of Business. Each of these projects represents a significant portion of a student’s degree program and these programs are an essential priority of the school. You will ensure program priorities are met. This will take place through the development of a comprehensive external relations strategy as action-learning represents one of the primary ways in which companies and alumni engage with the institution. You will also work with other units across Ross and campus related to external engagement, representing the interest of Ross’ engaged learning portfolio. You will report to the Managing Director, Office of Action-Based Learning (OABL).

You Will…

  • Represent the broad spectrum of Ross external engagement offerings (i.e., MAP, Global Initiatives, LBLE and Career Development Office) to external members, including corporate partners at alumni events and conferences, and to internal members across Ross and the University with a primary focus on our MAP and ABL portfolio.
  • Manage a portfolio of corporate and non-profit partnerships to provide over 150 funded, sponsorship commitments for real-world action-learning projects – which will require several hundred conversations on a yearly basis to create interest, qualify potential sponsors, and lead them through the proposal submission process
  • Develop an annual sourcing and marketing strategy, in collaboration with the OABL Managing Director and program leadership, to determine the needs of each program every year.
  • Serve, in collaboration with the Managing Director and other Associate Directors, as a project lead. This project management responsibility serves as the main coordinator of project-related logistics between the sponsor, faculty, and student teams.

You Have:

  • Bachelor’s degree (BBA preferred) and at least 5 years of experience in higher education administration, marketing, sales, fundraising, or other comparable fields or an equivalent combination of education and experience
  • Project management skills
