There is only one current IOAS vacancy available at present featured below. However if you are interested in another role and in working with the IOAS you may send your CV to email@example.com stating why you think we might be interested in you.
IOAS – Client Manager/Evaluator
The successful applicant is likely to have a degree level qualification in agriculture or food related topics or have experience in such industries in quality related roles. Specific experience in the organic and sustainability sector and in some aspect of conformity assessment (inspection, certification, accreditation) is necessary. Also desirable would be qualifications and/or experience in food safety, social compliance, aquaculture, textiles, cosmetics, good agricultural practice or ethical trade. IOAS is especially interested in candidates with qualification and/or experience in food safety and social compliance. A track record of working internationally in different cultural environments would be an asset. Due to its increased activity in North America, IOAS would especially welcome applicants from North America.
Applicants must be able to work on their own as well as part of a team and show good attention to detail. Fluency in English is essential and at least one other language highly desirable as is a willingness to travel extensively, sometimes off the beaten track. Unless the successful applicant wishes to work in our North Dakota office, they will be expected to work from their own office which will require good communication links and good internet speeds.
CONDITIONS OF EMPLOYMENT
Successful applicants based in the USA will be hired as full employees with benefits. Persons from outside the USA will be self-employed under long term contract. Self-employed persons will be expected to provide their own office equipment although all consumables will be covered by expenses. The salary will be fixed in the home currency in line with experience taking into account the local salary rates and comparative cost of living with a figure equivalent to US$40,000 plus benefits (US based) or US$45,000 (non-US based) being used as a guide.
Anticipated starting date: July 2017.
