Job at The Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition

The Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) is driven by the vision of a world without malnutrition. GAIN was launched at the UN in 2002 to tackle the human suffering caused by malnutrition. GAIN is a global, Swiss-based foundation that mobilises public-private partnerships and provides financial and technical support to deliver nutritious foods to those people most at risk of malnutrition.

The organization is delivering improved nutrition to an estimated 1 billion people in more than 30 countries, half of whom are women and children. Our programs in Africa and Asia enable better diets through working with national and multinational businesses, governments and civil society to promote fortified staple foods and to improve the quality of food along agricultural value chains.


The Country Director will be responsible for the development and implementation of GAIN’s strategy in Nigeria, including the identification of GAIN’s niche in country, ensuring that GAIN plays a catalytic role in engaging government, donors, NGOs and business partners around strategies to end malnutrition and for in-country resource mobilization efforts.
Moreover, the Country Director will be responsible for the management of all aspects of the Nigeria Country Office, including providing vision and direction for the Nigeria country program, developing and maintaining strong working relationships with influential stakeholders and acting as the principal point of contact for in-country donors to secure programme funding locally.

The ideal candidate will be an exceptional leader with solid experience of working in Nigeria, have an entrepreneurial mind-set with a successful fundraising track record and possess a broad understanding of our area of work.
We are looking for someone who can represent GAIN in an authoritative and credible way, think critically, innovate to develop solutions that drive impact at scale and who can build and maintain strong alliances with key partners to position GAIN as a significant contributor to addressing malnutrition.
Fluency in English and proficiency in the local languages is highly desirable.
