Job description

About MAP

Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP) works for the health and dignity of Palestinians living under occupation and as refugees. Our vision is a future where all Palestinians can access an effective, sustainable and locally led system of healthcare and the full realisation of their rights to health and dignity. Through our offices in the West Bank, Gaza, East Jerusalem, Lebanon, and London, we work with trusted and experienced local partners to achieve this vision.

Our programmes provide access to essential health services and build local knowledge and skills to address local health problems. In times of humanitarian emergency, we are ready to respond rapidly with aid and assistance.

We are also committed to bearing witness to the injustices caused by occupation, displacement, and conflict. In the UK and internationally, we advocate for meaningful action to ensure the political and social barriers to Palestinian health and dignity are addressed.

Our culture

Human rights are at the heart of what we do. We are committed to supporting the health and dignity of Palestinians, working to the highest possible standards with fairness, flexibility, and respect. We are a passionate and dynamic team, reacting to a fast-paced humanitarian, political and media environment, while working in partnership and coalitions to make positive, long-term change. We aim to provide a supportive working culture in which you will have opportunities to innovate, grow, and develop your skills and expertise.

Your impact

The impact of every role in our organisation can be felt on a day-to-day basis with the delivery of our programmes, and MAP’s size means that you can have a real influence on the organisation. You will be able to help shape the strategy and implementation of your team’s plans and bring new ideas to bring about change.

As Advocacy and Research Officer, you will contribute to the development and delivery of MAP’s advocacy and campaigns strategy, helping increase the profile of MAP and encouraging meaningful action in support of Palestinians’ rights to health and dignity from government, parliamentarians, and UN bodies.

You will monitor political developments and help develop strategies and high-quality briefing materials to influence parliamentary and policymaking debates, promoting the participation of the communities MAP serves. You will proactively reach out to parliamentarians, and other stakeholders, and react rapidly to queries and requests for information. Working directly with colleagues in Palestine and Lebanon, you will help develop research projects relating to political, economic, and social barriers to the rights to health and dignity of the communities MAP serves.

You will be able to communicate persuasively and confidently with a range of stakeholders, with strong interpersonal and relationship management skills. You will have a keen focus on accuracy in all outputs, while being able to prioritise effectively and deal with competing demands in a fast-paced working environment. You will also have a strong understanding of the political and humanitarian context in Palestine and Lebanon, and a genuine commitment to human rights, international justice, and promoting Palestinian participation in advocacy and policymaking.
