Job description

Peace Direct is an international charity with a big mission: to work with local people to stop violence and build sustainable peace in some of the world's most conflict affected countries. More than that, we want to change the international system so that it better supports the role that local people and communities play in preventing violence and building and sustaining peace.

As Senior Programme Officer, you will be part of the Programmes and Research team where you will be responsible for supporting our local partners across sub-Saharan Africa and selected countries on other continents depending on our strategic priorities. The peacebuilding programmes that we support range from youth-led peacebuilding efforts in Mali and Pakistan, atrocity prevention initiatives in Sudan to post-conflict community cohesion activities in Nigeria. Our local partners are working under the most difficult conditions and your job is to provide the best possible support to them, through helping them think through learning frameworks, leading on various aspects of grant management and reporting, exploring ways to strengthen financial sustainability, supporting new programme development, and solving problems together as they arise.  

The successful candidate will have a minimum of four years’ experience in a similar or relevant role, and experience of working with local partners in developing countries on multi-year programmes funded by institutional donors. The role requires excellent communication skills, written and verbal, and the successful candidate must be fluent in French. Managing complex programmes requires excellent organisational skills and very strong financial literacy skills as we expect the successful candidate to be very comfortable in handling complex spreadsheets and reviewing financial reports from partners. We are also looking for someone who is creative, calm and adaptable even under the most challenging of circumstances. The work we support around the world is based in some of the most volatile contexts, and things often don't go according to plan. We are looking for people who thrive under these situations.

Finally, we are looking for someone with a genuine passion for our mission to support local efforts to build peace. We have no overseas offices, employ no expatriate staff and we are looking for people who see this as our strength, as everything we do is designed to strengthen the role of local people's efforts to stop violence and build sustainable peace.

While the post is based in our London office, we have closed our office due to Covid and do not expect to reopen it fully until September 2021. Therefore the successful candidate will be expected to work from home until September at the earliest, though some work in the office may be possible upon request. 

Peace Direct strives to be a diverse and inclusive employer, with equality of opportunities regardless of personal identity, and we are committed to improving our systems and ways of working to support this, including creating a Diversity, Equality and Inclusion (DEI) working group, DEI strategy and recruitment guidelines. We strongly encourage individuals from disadvantaged and underrepresented backgrounds to apply, including Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME), LGBTQ+, people with disabilities and people with mental health challenges.

The deadline for applications is Sunday 20th June. Only completed applications will be accepted and only applicants with the right to work in the UK will be considered (we do not yet hold a Home Office visa sponsor license and so cannot accept applications from people who don't already have the right to work in the UK. The application form and Job Description are available on Peace Direct’s website. 

Peace Direct works hard to ensure its staff have a good work life balance and feel valued. Some of the benefits we have include:

  • 25 days annual leave not including the office closing between Christmas and New Year.
  • Stakeholder Pension with Peace Direct contributing 6%
  • An interest free season ticket loan for the purchase of a commuter season ticket
  • Flexible working hours
  • Enhanced maternity and adoption leave pay (12 weeks full pay, 12 weeks half pay)
  • Training budget available for all staff (we have secured ‘Investors in People’ accreditation and are committed to the development and support of all staff).
  • A warm and friendly work environment!
