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 malnutrition. 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 malnutrition.
The Eleanor Crook Foundation (ECF) seeks a Senior Program Officer for Advocacy to help advance ECF’s advocacy strategy and to serve as a strategic manager of the Foundation’s advocacy grants and investment portfolio. The Senior Policy Officer will work across the Eleanor Crook Foundation’s program teams and partners to develop and implement world-class strategies to drive attention, awareness, and action on the issue of global malnutrition. Reporting to the Foundation’s Advocacy & Communications Director and working alongside a dynamic team of policy and technical experts, the Senior Advocacy Program Officer will help to inform, shape, and execute ECF’s advocacy strategy – predominantly focused on U.S. advocacy for global malnutrition but also spanning advocacy efforts in the United Kingdom and to global philanthropies, multilaterals, and other institutions.
The Associate Director of Communications will work across the Eleanor Crook Foundation’s program teams to develop and implement a world-class strategy to drive attention, awareness, and action on the issue of global malnutrition. This will include developing effective communications regarding all of the Foundation’s efforts and priorities–across research, policy, and advocacy. In addition, this will require that the Associate Director develop and implement a strategy to elevate ECF’s brand and identity across the global health and development communities. The Associate Director will be expected to play an integral, leading role in telling the story of the Foundation’s work, and the work of the malnutrition sector writ large.
ECF seeks a Special Assistant who will directly support the CEO of a mid-sized private foundation. The Special Assistant will function as an indispensable right hand to the CEO involved in shepherding and executing major day-to-day developments and leading on special projects. The Special Assistant’s responsibilities will include: accompanying the CEO in all meetings, managing meeting prep and follow-up, assisting the CEO with written correspondence, speeches, and presentations, monitoring organizational deliverables including liaising with team members and external partners, managing important special projects, and advising on organizational strategy. The Special Assistant will work particularly closely with the Foundation’s Managing Director and Executive Assistant and will work across the organization’s program teams. The Special Assistant will also regularly engage with ECF grantees and partners, which include many of the most renowned organizations in international development policy, advocacy, and research.
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.
