Have you got an appetite for research? Are you hungry for international challenges? Gira is recruiting a Consultant for the Chinese Market.
The succesful applicant will participate in research and consultancy projects for the Chinese dairy market as well as in a wide variety of international food research and consultancy projects (dairy, meat, bakery…), related to China or other markets.
You will learn a variety of skills under the supervision of and with direction from experienced specialist market and studies experts. But you will very rapidly be expected to show your own analytical qualities and your abilities as a self-starter. The role will evolve towards more responsibility and client contact as your skills develop.
You should have a Master’s degree in Economics or Food Science, Agricultural Engineering, and ideally have a good understanding of the dairy sector. A good understanding of basic economic theory is also required as well as expert skills in Excel, PowerPoint and internet research tools, fluent written and spoken English and Chinese. Very good communication and analytical skills are necessary to succeed in this role.
The position is based in Ferney-Voltaire, France – just 5 minutes from Geneva airport and 15 minutes from downtown. You must be willing to relocate there and also be able to travel to China (several times a year depending on the needs of research projects).
We are always interested in hearing from qualified freelance researchers and consultants with good interviewing and report-writing skills preferably with experience in the food and drink markets of one or more of the major EU countries and who speak the language of that country really fluently.
We offer considerable flexibility to freelancers who work with us, together with real back-up and support from our heads-of-project, and the possibility of working from home.
If you would like to discuss these opportunities with us, please send an email in English to firstname.lastname@example.org
Gira is interested in receiving applications for internships from outgoing, conscientious final-year masters students preferably with some knowledge of the food industry and with excellent numerical and writing skills plus complete fluency in English and at least one other European language (other than French).
As an intern with Gira, you will learn both market research and analytical skills and you will obtain a good understanding of how key parts of the European food chain work. Currently, we are particularly interested in hearing from candidates with fluent Spanish and / or Italian (at a level where telephone interviewing poses no problem); there is the possibility of an offer of full-time employment following the internship for the right candidate. The place of work will be Ferney-Voltaire.
Candidates should write to us in English at email@example.com
