Harris Hill are delighted to be working with a charity that is trying to tackle the issues of climate change and global hunger through developing sustainable farming and food technology. They are looking to find someone to become their brand-new Corporate Engagement Specialist. This role is crucial for their rapid expansion and in continuing their global reach. This person can be based in the UK or Europe.
You will be responsible for
-Setting the strategy for the organisation's corporate engagement work, identifying and pursuing the top priorities for impact.
-Managing and delivering all aspects of their corporate engagement work, and potentially leading a team of specialists in the future.
-Building relationships with established companies (including food manufacturers, co-manufacturers, ingredient companies, and life science companies), influencing them to invest in alternative proteins, produce and stock more and higher-quality alternative protein products, and create new products.
