Humanity & Inclusion (HI) is an award-winning international development organisation working in situations of poverty and exclusion, conflict and disaster.
HI UK is looking for a dynamic and creative Policy & Development Manager to support the operational development of our comprehensive approach to Armed Violence Reduction. This is an exciting and varied role working across HI’s activities. You will manage a team, influence decision makers, donors and other major stakeholders, support the development of Humanitarian Mine Action and Armed Violence Reduction operations and promote HI AVR’s identity and brand in policy, partnership and proposal development. If this sounds like the next role for you, we’d love to welcome you to our friendly and dedicated team.
BACKGROUND INFORMATION AND PURPOSE OF THE POST
The number of fatalities from armed violence is estimated to be over half a million people every year. Increasing use of armed violence through explosive weapons, improvised explosive devices, and small arms and light weapons also affects civilian populations through their longer-term impacts. HI’s strategy seeks to uphold the basic principle that all people affected or threatened by armed violence should have their rights fully respected and their protection assured through relevant and timely actions in all phases of a crisis and beyond.
Complex situations require comprehensive approaches. As the impacts of armed violence cut across the different areas of humanitarian response, a comprehensive cross-sector approach is needed. This requires practitioners to think outside their particular programming mandates and to consider the entirety of the challenges at hand.
Starting a number of years ago, HI has therefore expanded its activities from the five pillars of humanitarian mine action to include a broader set of actions aimed at reducing armed violence. Today, HI’s unique comprehensive approach combines international, national and local action to reduce the impact of conventional weapons and to protect and uphold the rights of conflict-affected people. HI implements Comprehensive Models to Mine Action (CAMA) and to Armed Violence Reduction (AVR) to maximise the benefits of a given project and to contribute to a world where people can lead safe and fulfilling lives in peaceful and inclusive communities.
To achieve this, HI is seeking a dynamic and creative Policy & Development Manager (PDM) to support the operational development of this work. Under the responsibility of the AVR Technical Director, the PDM will have three main objectives:
- Influence decision-makers, donors and other major stakeholders to adopt a comprehensive model in their approaches to budgets and policy, in order to reduce the impact of arms on civilian populations and to promote HI as a valued partner
- Support the development and expansion of Humanitarian Mine Action and Armed Violence Reduction operations in existing or new programmes
- Manage two HQ-based project officers, a policy lead and a development support officer, bringing forward HI AVR’s identity and brand in policy, partnership and proposal development.
MAIN DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES
Donor and Stakeholder influence
Influence donors and major stakeholders to ensure Comprehensive Approaches to Armed Violence Reduction is in their political and budgetary agendas and that HI is their natural partner.
- Contribute to the definition and implementation of a policy and development strategy to promote HI’s technical expertise in AVR, including supporting the policy lead in advising mainstream stakeholders and donors, promoting HI’s technical assistance in AVR, advising other AVR actors and donors to fulfil the Sustainable Development Goal commitment to ‘leave no one behind’ in the context of armed violence, and delivering targeted awareness-raising, side-events, training and/or influencing criteria for funding.
- Influence international stakeholders’ policies and priorities so that they better reflect and include AVR priorities in their guidance frameworks, budgets and calls for proposals.
- Influence and actively participate in major mainstream networks to raise the profile of Comprehensive Approaches to AVR.
- In close collaboration with HI staff throughout the HI Federation, coordinate analyses of innovations and funding trends in AVR work, propose influencing tactics and support the identification of opportunities for fundraising, strategic alliances and/or consortia to develop and expand technical assistance in AVR.
- Represent HI internationally with HMA/AVR stakeholders and relevant donors on AVR-related policy, operational implementation, deployment of partnerships and business development.
- Contribute to advocacy initiatives within the sector, in collaboration with HI’s advocacy unit and the AVR policy lead.
Support the development and expansion of Humanitarian Mine Action and Armed Violence Reduction operations in existing or new programmes
In line with the HI Federation’s strategy and plan of action:
- With the policy lead and the AVR specialist, consolidate a community of practice on AVR policy and development with HI’s country-based specialists, policy officers and development officers.
- Support field teams in the development of concept notes and full proposals, and provide technical support and assistance in response to new countries who have an interest in developing AVR programmes.
- Act as the focal point for pursuing and developing multi-country major HMA/AVR funding initiatives and contribute to the identification of new donors and the realisation of major opportunities.
- Act as the business development focal point for the Federation for specific HMA/AVR donors, attending donor meetings to provide operational information alongside any HI National Association, as required.
- Work with the Institutional Funding Division to develop appropriate and fit-for-purpose business development tools for planning, applying for and managing grants.
- Embody HI's values on a daily basis.
- Understand HI’s strategy and make it explicit, translating it into operational objectives for your team and leading any necessary changes.
- Encourage inter- and intra-departmental exchanges of practice, innovation and risk-taking.
- Organise the operational management of your team, structuring the work around identified processes, steering performance and facilitating the resolution of problems.
- Contribute to the development of your staff, creating the conditions for their commitment, professionalism and attachment to HI.
The post-holder will work on a day-to-day basis with a large range of actors within the HI structure, including:
- Armed Violence Reduction technical unit

- Knowledge and relationships with data-driven organisations, especially in the climate justice and energy transition space;

Veganuary is the non-profit that encourages people to go vegan for the month of January - and beyond. We focus on changing consumer behaviours and attitudes, while providing lots of information and practical support - to make the transition to veganism as easy and enjoyable as possible.
We also work with businesses to drive up vegan food provisions in shops and restaurants and have made veganism more visible and accessible through our work with national and international media.
What we do
- Our Aim: A world without animal farms and slaughterhouses. A world where food production does not decimate forests, pollute rivers and oceans, exacerbate climate change and drive wild animal populations to extinction.
- Our Mission: To inspire and support people to try vegan, drive corporate change, and create a global mass movement, championing compassionate food choices with the aim of ending animal farming, protecting the planet, and improving human health.
We work toward our lofty ambitions by following a simple, 3-step plan:
- Encouraging and supporting millions of people to try veganism.
- Creating the necessary media and social media buzz to raise awareness of the topic and the benefits of a vegan lifestyle.
- Encouraging companies to promote and launch more delicious vegan options to increase the quality, availability and visibility of vegan food.
How we do it
You’ll have no doubt seen our public campaigns for Veganuary, you may even have tried it yourself. We’re incredibly proud of the global movement we’ve built, and it continues to grow year-on-year.
The part of work you might be a little less familiar with is our work in influencing businesses. The more businesses speak positively about veganism and launch new vegan products, the better the availability, visibility and quality of vegan products becomes, making it easier and tastier to try vegan. This is inspiring more people to choose plant-based options and stick with it long term.
Amongst many others, we are incredibly proud to have worked with the following companies to increase their vegan offering:
What we’re looking for
As we head into the next phase of our strategy, we are looking for a talented Head of Operations and Finance who can help us build a robust, sustainable organisation. You will help us to shore up our gains to date and capitalise on the increasing number of growth opportunities coming our way.
This is a reimagining of an existing role and represents an investment in the charity’s future. We are looking for someone who can work closely with the board and executive to devise and implement business plans that are robust enough to accommodate our rapid growth and flexible enough to take advantage of new opportunities.
You will lead on financial management, supervise and optimise the organisation’s operations in the UK, and support our growing international team in operational matters.
Playing a pivotal part in the Senior Management Team, you will be responsible for ensuring that Veganuary’s day-to-day operations - including governance, administration, HR, finance, legal and IT remain compliant, responsive and efficient.

- Are you a qualified finance professional with significant experience of overseeing finance functions in UK charities?

- Do you enjoy building efficient structures and processes that limit bureaucracy and drive growth?
