Seeking an experienced negotiator for a position in Washington, D.C., encouraging institutions and businesses to increase the availability of healthful meals to the public.  

About the Physicians Committee

The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine is a nonprofit health organization dedicated to saving and improving lives through good nutrition, advanced medical research, and public policy. Our vision is to create a healthier world through a new emphasis on disease prevention, plant-based nutrition, and scientific research conducted ethically, without using animals.

About this Career Opportunity

We are seeking a senior negotiator with five or more years of experience in negotiations, sales, or lobbying to reach out to public and private institutions to push forward healthful foods and simultaneously eliminate processed meats from their menus. This will involve negotiating with hospital chains, insurers, food service providers and catering companies, supermarkets, governmental institutions, restaurant chains, and airlines. The Corporate Liaison will also have the opportunity to develop and implement strategy to influence local and federal policies to further support these efforts.  

This is a full-time position located at the Physicians Committee's headquarters in Washington, D.C. (Friendship Heights on Metro's Red Line)

Background

Some private businesses and public institutions have started to incorporate plant-based meals into their menus, although most still serve processed meat and some institutions like hospitals even have fast-food chains on their campuses. Plant-based diets have been shown to decrease obesity rates and even reverse some chronic diseases like diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. On the other hand processed meats have been linked to cancer. While we are just starting to see positive changes being made to institutional menus across the country, we are still far away from where we should be.

Who We're Looking For

We are looking for a team player who will tackle his or her work with a sense of urgency and with persistence. A successful candidate will have a track record of negotiating with corporate entities using diplomacy and sound evidence. In addition to having 5-7 years of experience in corporate negotiation, candidates should also have extensive public speaking experience and be skilled with short and long term strategy planning. If you are a fierce negotiator and are passionate about nutrition, we want to hear from you.
