Job Title: Policy and Parliamentary Officer - Nutrition
Working For: Results Education
Length of Contract: This is a full-time permanent position.
Are you someone with some policy, advocacy, research, parliamentary or public affairs experience, who wants to work on one of the biggest causes of poor health globally?
RESULTS UK has an excellent opportunity for you to develop your advocacy skills and help to save lives. Specific knowledge of global health issues - particularly nutrition - would be useful, but not essential. Equally important is a proven ability to quickly gain an understanding of a complex new policy area and translate it into succinct, clear, relevant and achievable recommendations for influencing policy makers and parliamentarians.
Malnutrition, in all its forms, is the leading cause of poor health globally. Since 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has had significant impacts on the existing burden of malnutrition. Nearly half of all deaths in children under-five are attributable to undernutrition, translating into the loss of about three million young lives a year. Malnutrition in all its forms is also the single largest cause of death among women. Malnutrition is linked with lower socio-economic opportunities, low education outcomes, and the perpetuation of a cycle of poverty, ill-health and gender inequalities.
Closing Date: 26 September 2022
Interviews will be held on 4th October, 2022.

You will need to upload your CV (maximum 2 pages) and answer three questions that will be used for shortlisting. Please do not send a cover letter.
You have planned to publish a policy report that can be used for advocacy purposes. Describe the process you would go through to design the report. Who would you want to involve in the process and what information would you need to know?
You want to rebuild the APPG on nutrition and need to be able to build cross party support in Parliament. How would you go about doing that? If you have not worked with an APPG before, think about how you would build relationships between people who are interested in the same issues but come from different perspectives.
