POSITION: Head of HR
LOCATION: London, UK
STARTING DATE: December 2018
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.
To do this, we need to recruit, motivate and develop an outstanding team of staff including technical experts and other professionals in the countries in which we work.
With a new HR strategy in place, we now seek to deploy a Head of HR to provide HR support and advice to the Director of Strategic Operations and the SMT so that GAIN’s HR policies and practices are legally compliant in each country in which it operates; reflect good practice; support effective decision-making; command funder and staff confidence; and support the organization’s mission and objectives.
The Head of HR will manage a small team based in Geneva and London. Staff in some of our Country Offices also have an HR responsibility. Together, the team provides a full professional service from strategic development, policy implementation, payroll oversight to individual ER cases.
The successful candidate will be responsible for delivering value for money and effectiveness in GAIN’s people-related budgeting and expenditure; innovative organisational development; support effective resource planning; assisting in ensuring strong impact and effectiveness controls through a robust set of policies, relevant metrics and their management, communication and formulation. S/he will live and represent GAIN values and support a culture of impact, collaboration, diversity and excellence.
The ideal candidate will have strong Human Resources experience working in a dynamic, fast-paced environment, adapting quickly to rapidly changing situations. The Head of HR will be expected to have knowledge of employment legislation in at least one country in which GAIN has a significant presence; and the ability to acquire knowledge in different country contexts. You will be required to have experience in leading a fully operational HR service comprising generalist advice, outsourced payroll, benefits, learning and development and change management. Finally, you will have experience of providing data analysis, using reporting tools to develop KPIs and dashboards to improve the HR service and overall business impact.
The Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition is committed to a policy of equal opportunity and as an inclusive employer we are keen to reflect the diversity of our society at every level within our organisation. We welcome applications from all sections of the community. Our employees worldwide are required to ensure their behaviour is consistent with our policies.
