Applications for this job close soon.

The Food Systems Handbook (FSH) is an open-source, independent, and community-run project. The FSH team conducts research into the most pressing present and future food security issues, and assesses the effectiveness of interventions aiming to improve food security in the most hard-hit regions of the world. FSH has cultivated a wide community spanning the policy, academic, private, humanitarian, and development sectors, and is thus in a unique position to advocate for the most effective food security interventions currently known. Our team is composed of approximately ten volunteers, and three paid ALLFED team members as the project leaders.

Weโ€™re currently looking to bring on one or more operations management volunteers to the team, to assist with the day-to-day administration of the project (scheduling meetings, document upkeep, etc.), to plan events to engage external stakeholders in our work, and to conduct more specialised tasks, such as applying for grants and conducting research into the potential for the project to gain charitable status. Due to the wide-ranging remit of this role, you would be a core team member, with the potential to assist in shaping the strategy of the project, if so desired.

This position would require at a minimum a five-hour commitment per week, though greater capacity would allow us to scale the project faster. The work is entirely remote. We are open to recruiting multiple volunteers who would work closely together, if multiple excellent candidates apply.

No formal/paid operations management experience is required, but we're looking for highly organised individuals who ideally have some experience in the kinds of tasks mentioned above (though this is not essential).
