The Eleanor Crook Foundation employs a team of leading experts in research, public policy, advocacy, and communications who work to identify bold, catalytic, scalable, and sustainable solutions for global nutrition. We ask all candidates to make yourself familiar with the issue and our strategic approach before submitting your application.
ECF Staff Benefits
Although every member of our team brings unique skills and backgrounds to the Foundation, we are united by a “sick-of-business-as-usual” attitude and a desire to have a meaningful impact on global nutrition.
ECF seeks a Senior Program Officer for Advocacy to serve as a strategic manager of the foundation’s advocacy grants portfolio and help drive forward a policy leadership agenda, influencing and guiding ECF’s strategic investments and shaping global nutrition policy and programs. Reporting to ECF’s Advocacy & Communications Director and working alongside a dynamic team of policy and technical experts, the Senior Program Officer will manage and grow ECF’s advocacy portfolio, helping to guide the strategic focus of ECF’s diverse network of grantees. The Senior Program Officer will specifically focus on ECF’s U.S. advocacy grantmaking, providing leadership over the Foundation’s U.S. advocacy grantee network. This includes efforts to increase the level of knowledge, alignment, and engagement across our grantee and partner network and identifying opportunities to grow and diversify ECF’s grants portfolio. The Senior Program Officer may also support ECF’s advocacy efforts in the UK and other markets. The Senior Program Officer will facilitate impact, identify learning, and mitigate risk by monitoring and evaluating grantees’ work, managing relationships, and overseeing day-to-day grants management.
ECF seeks a Policy Program Officer (PPO) to help develop and manage a robust portfolio of global nutrition thought leadership and policy analysis on behalf of the Foundation. Reporting to the Policy Director and working alongside a dynamic team of policy, advocacy, and nutrition technical experts, the PPO will be responsible for managing a multi-million dollar portfolio of nutrition policy grants to some of the top think tanks, policy experts, and research institutions in global health and nutrition, as well as UN agencies such as WHO and UNICEF. The PPO will ensure clear goals and communications for all ECF policy grants and will closely monitor and contribute to progress of ongoing projects. The PPO will also contribute to over-the-horizon thought leadership and help develop bold objectives, strategies, and investments for the Foundation as a whole. In doing so, the PPO will be required to stay abreast of the latest trends across global nutrition policy, financing, and advocacy and explore and anticipate emerging issues across ECF’s 2020-2025 Strategy and organizational goals.
ECF seeks a Research and Policy Analyst (RPA) to help develop cutting edge global nutrition policy analysis and thought leadership on behalf of the Foundation. Reporting to the Policy Director and working alongside a dynamic team of policy, advocacy, and research experts, the RPA will produce rigorous internal and external analyses, conduct nutrition modeling, and over-the-horizon thought leadership, including regularly conducting global political, financial, and program analysis across global nutrition issues. Work will include economic and impact modeling through platforms such as LiST and Optima, market-shaping analysis, donor scoping, literature reviews, evidence synthesis, and quantitative and qualitative surveys. The RPA will also help support a multi-million-dollar portfolio of nutrition policy grants to some of the top think tanks and policy experts in global health and nutrition, as well as UN agencies such as the World Health Organization and UNICEF. The RPA will be required to stay abreast of the latest trends across global nutrition policy, financing, and advocacy and explore and anticipate emerging issues across ECF’s 2020-2025 Strategy and organizational goals.
We take diversity seriously
The Eleanor Crook Foundation is committed to fostering and celebrating diversity and inclusion, both within our Foundation and across our global community of partners. We seek out and welcome differences in experience, thought, and perspective. We believe that a world in which every child receives the nutrition they need to thrive can only exist by fostering the inclusion of a wide range of voices across our work. We hold our policies, our practices, and ourselves accountable to this commitment in everything that we do.
We hope you will join us in this commitment by signing our Diversity and Inclusion pledge.
