About One CGIAR

CGIAR has a vision of a world with sustainable and resilient food, land, and water systems that deliver diverse, healthy, safe, sufficient, and affordable diets, and ensure improved livelihoods and greater social equality, within planetary and regional environmental boundaries.
“One CGIAR” is a dynamic reformulation of CGIAR’s partnerships, knowledge, assets, and global presence, aiming for greater integration and impact in the face of the interdependent challenges facing today’s world.
As part of the transformational changes towards One CGIAR, we are now implementing a new operational structure which aims to create a more integrated CGIAR; align operational structure to the 2030 Research and Innovation Strategy; enable greater collaboration across functions, disciplines, and geographies; and further strengthen the diversity of people, skills and ideas. CGIAR has approximately 10,000 staff deployed in more than 80 countries.
This leading role provides an exciting opportunity to be part of One CGIAR’s passionate, world-class team of leaders and to make a significant contribution to the transformational change CGIAR is undergoing to integrate its global operations, double its funding, and have a much greater impact in addressing some of the most pressing global challenges.
One CGIAR is committed to fair, safe, and inclusive workplaces, and we believe that diversity powers our innovation, contributes to our excellence, and is critical for our mission. We place great significance on teamwork, gender equality, and respect for diversity. As an international organization, we value the importance of an enriching and productive working environment, and believe that the competence and passion of our employees are fundamental in working towards our vision of a world free of poverty, hunger and environmental degradation. As such, we are committed to establishing and investing in a team of diverse and committed individuals who share our passion for the work we do.
