International Campaign Management Director (ICMD) (d/f/m)

foodwatch

Background

Who We Are:

With offices in Berlin, Amsterdam and Paris, foodwatch is an international, not-for-profit organisation that fights for consumers’ right to safe and high-quality food. We see ourselves as the “public pressure group” for consumer protection, exposing abuses in the food sector and naming those responsible. We have the freedom to do so because we are independent of government and the food industry and financed through membership fees and donations.

We do not promote a certain way of eating but instead fight back against anti-consumer business practices and advocate for more consumer rights in the agrifood sector. As outspoken proponents of consumer protection, we ask the difficult questions and focus on awareness-raising campaign work. Experience has shown: Pro-consumer changes are only made when public pressure forces the respective companies or policymakers to react.

Additional comments

What You Can Expect from Us:

At foodwatch, you will work in a professional environment with a young and highly motivated team. We are small enough to offer short decision-making paths and direct exchange between all levels of the organisation and large enough to initiate and shape public debate.

Our independence from government and the food industry means that we are free in our choice of issues and our campaign approach. foodwatch’s campaigners do not write project proposals for government funds. Instead, they work day after day on the best possible campaign strategies for advancing their issues.

The salary is competitive with other NGOs. Our organisation also offers an occupational pension scheme. And last but not least, our office enjoys a prime location in Berlin-Mitte, near Rosenthaler Platz, with excellent accessibility to public transport systems and with numerous restaurants and cafés in the immediate vicinity.
