TABLE is a new global platform for knowledge synthesis, for reflective, critical thinking and for inclusive stakeholder dialogue on priority concerns and contestations around the future of food. It seeks to facilitate informed discussions about how the food system can become sustainable, resilient, just, and ultimately “good”. We impartially set out the evidence, assumptions, and values that people bring to food system debates.
The Programme Manager will oversee all aspects of the day-to-day operational management of the platform, working closely with the TABLE Director. This includes supporting the team across all three partner universities in driving the programme forwards and expanding, and in managing our activities in order to meet our objectives and performance indicators. You will be responsible for co-ordinating activities with academics and stakeholders in the UK and overseas. Your role will include project management; monitoring, evaluation and impact assessment, reporting, events organisation and in supporting other team members in their communications and outreach activities. You will also be liaising with the finance and other administrative departments both at Oxford and across our partner institutions to ensure effective budgeting and to manage due diligence and legal compliance processes.
You must have Master’s degree in a relevant discipline. You will have a strong track record in programme management, preferably in a University environment, including communications, events, stakeholder engagement and policy engagement. You will have excellent financial management skills with experience of budget administration, forecasting and reporting. Excellent communication, presentation and writing skills with a proven ability to develop effective relationships with other institutions and partners are essential.
