One of Nourish's five national collaborative projects is hiring a contract legal researcher with an interest in public procurement and food systems sustainability. This is for an ambitious cohort-led project to build capacity for more values-based food procurement in public institutions.
The core team for this project, made up of institutional food buyers and food service managers, is looking to hire a researcher who understands public procurement practices, process, and relevant policies to produce. The selected researcher will complete a comprehensive national and international scan on best in-class sustainable language in public procurement. Supported by the core team and advisors, the researcher will also work with a lawyer to help produce national RFP models for beta-testing this year.
