Team Expansion Coordinator

Assemble the team transforming the food system

The Good Food Institute (GFI) is on the forefront of the movement to use food technology and markets to solve some of the world’s biggest problems, from climate change and global hunger to antibiotic resistance and the exploitation of billions of animals annually. We are consigning factory farming to the dustbin of history by making plant-based and “clean” meat, eggs, and dairy the default choices for consumers. The Team Expansion Coordinator will speed up the timeline of this transformation by accelerating our recruiting and hiring processes, assembling a team that will change the world.

How You Will Make a Difference

You will assist the Operations Department and hiring committees in recruiting and hiring the best possible people as quickly as possible, while representing GFI well and giving applicants the best possible experience. This includes:

  • Recruiting top talent with strategic advertising and direct outreach to qualified prospects.
  • Communicating with prospects and applicants at all stages of the process, representing GFI’s positions and processes accurately and professionally.
  • Critically assessing applications for writing quality, fit for the position, and mission alignment.
  • Coordinating the review process by helping reviewers follow the standard operating procedures for hiring, administering tests to applicants, and informing applicants of the hiring committees’ decisions.

Who We’re Looking For

We are seeking smart, thoughtful, and creative self-starters who want to push back against climate change, transform industrial animal agriculture, and develop healthy and humane foods that are accessible to everyone.

We are offering a six-month contract with the possibility of renewal. Contractors must have:

  • Support for GFI’s philosophy and ability to professionally advocate GFI’s positions.
  • Exceptional interpersonal skills, including the ability to engage high-potential prospects, to make all applicants feel respected and valued, and to effectively facilitate hiring committee deliberations.
  • Exceptional written and verbal communication, including the ability to confidently speak to all aspects of GFI’s mission and operations, to professionally navigate sensitive issues, and to compassionately deliver rejections and constructive feedback.
  • Mastery of the conventions of written English in order to consistently identify all technical and stylistic errors in applicants’ written materials.
  • Confidence in quickly developing clear, nuanced, well-substantiated critiques.
  • Eagerness to identify and correct your own cognitive and social biases insofar as they affect the accuracy and fairness of your hiring recommendations.
