Job description

Introduction

Action for Education (AFE) is a fast-growing education non-profit working with refugee and asylum-seeking communities. Founded in 2018, AFE has held a large national presence in Greece, on the Aegean islands and in Athens. In recent years, AFE’s operations have reached over 500 monthly students across 6 education centres, with a primary focus on children and young adults. AFE also has a global network of activists, former volunteers and partners, developed and engaged through media campaigns and advocacy actions.

AFE is established as a UK Charity, a Swiss Verein and Greek non-profit. It has an international Board of Directors comprising 10 members, as well as an Advisory Group offering specialist support in key organisational areas. The organisation currently works with 13 staff, including advocacy, fundraising, finance, communications, project coordinators and programme directors. Projects are implemented by rotating teams of 30-40 volunteers.

In early 2021, AFE developed an ambitious new 3-year strategy and aims for an impactful, ethically-driven journey to scale. This includes deepening the quality of existing services, responding to a fast-changing national situation in Greece, as well as exploring international scaling of its education services. 
 

About the role

For the past 3 years, AFE has had a co-directorship model. From early Autumn 2021, we are looking for new leadership to drive the organisation forward. The two current Directors are retiring from their positions and the organisation is looking to replace them with one Executive Director who will be supported with an enhanced team of staff and enlarged Board. The two outgoing Directors will take up positions on the Board, providing ongoing guidance to the incoming Executive Director.

This is a highly ambitious role, requiring a great deal of experience, sensitivity and entrepreneurship. The ideal candidate will demonstrate extensive experience working in the context, excellent leadership skills, and a strong knowledge of organisational processes, including financial management, strategic development, human resources, project management and external relations. 

Moreover, the successful candidate will demonstrate outstanding interpersonal skills and be driven by a genuine passion for refugee education in emergencies. They will be guided by a strong moral compass, never compromising on the highest ethical standards. They are expected to bring a bold new leadership style and engage in independent, creative and critical thinking.

The Executive Director will be someone who commits to the organisation for the long-term, at least 2 years. During this time, they will be responsible for operational and external affairs. This includes overseeing the implementation of the charity’s strategy, its external representation and education programmes.

Minimum commitment: 2 years
Contract type: Full time
Salary: €1,500/month
Location: Greece (with international travel)
Expected start date: beginning August
