Job description

The Good Food Institute Europe (GFI Europe) is looking for its Managing Director to lead the team making Europe’s food system better for the planet, people, and animals. You’ll use your strategic, leadership and management skills to champion sustainable proteins in Europe and enable our top-performing team to have the maximum impact.

GFI is a nonprofit organisation working to advance plant-based and cultivated (grown from cells) meat, in order to solve some of the world’s biggest problems, from climate change and global hunger, to antibiotic resistance and animal suffering. 

Reporting to the Board of GFI Europe, you will lead the organisation and its fantastic team. You will oversee the day-to-day work of the organisation, provide strategic leadership, and represent us to key stakeholders. You will benefit from – and contribute to – the mutual support, resources, and expertise of our global network of affiliate organisations. 

  • Full-time (flexible hours), permanent.
  • Home-based/remote from anywhere in Europe.
  • Salary: The salary and benefits package for all of our roles are researched and benchmarked against nonprofits and think tanks in the country of hire, and our policy is to pay 20% above the market rate. Due to capacity, we cannot complete this detailed research for every European country in advance, but indicative ranges are:
    • If based in Germany: €102,000 to €114,000 gross per year.
    • If based in the UK: £78,000 to £92,000 gross per year. 

We actively encourage people from all countries across Europe to apply for this role.

To be successful in this role, you will have:

  • A passion for GFI’s philosophy and mission.
  • Outstanding strategic and management skills.
  • Experience compassionately and successfully leading a team to deliver high impact.
  • Strong interpersonal and communications skills.

We want the best people and we don’t want biases holding us back. We strongly encourage people of every colour, orientation, age, gender, origin, and ability to apply. Because we value a diverse workplace, we prioritise an inclusive climate absent of discrimination and harassment during the application process and after you join the team.
