The Opportunity

Save the Children International has an exciting opportunity for you to join our team as the Global Health and Nutrition Director at London or any existing Save the Children International office location.

ROLE PURPOSE:

Save the Children is seeking a transformational development / humanitarian executive to lead our Health & Nutrition work globally. Taking advantage of Save the Children's vast network of program experts and global footprint, this global leader will use innovation, technology, data, and research to ensure that Save the Children stands as a state of the art institution working with children and their communities efficiently and effectively. This position will provide an unparalleled opportunity to implement the cutting-edge of development, humanitarian and human rights theory and practice across a network of 100+ countries and 25,000 staff. This includes helping Save the Children become effectively localized, data-driven, productively partnered, a powerful advocate, and to stand as one of the world's most recognized voices in the defence of the rights of every child everywhere.

This is the most senior Health & Nutrition role in Save the Children. This role has overall accountability for the quality and impact of Health, Nutrition, and WASH programmes and advocacy across Save the Children, promoting programme innovation and drawing on and contributing to the best global evidence on what works to guarantee children’s rights, and particularly their right to live free from violence.

As part of Save the Children’s 2030 Ambition, the organization has chosen to inspire three Breakthroughs in the way the world treats children, so that every child, and especially those suffering from inequality and discrimination, can Survive, Learn and be Protected. The 2030 breakthrough ambition that is led by the Health & Nutrition area is that children under 5 do not die from preventable causes.

This role will lead organizational efforts to achieve the four goals in our 2022-24 strategy for children, working to ensure that:

  • Children have a healthy start in life
  • Children go safely back to school and learn
  • Children live free from violence
  • Children benefit from safety nets and resilient families

In the event of a major humanitarian emergency, the role holder will be expected to work outside the normal role profile and be able to vary working hours accordingly.

EXPERIENCE AND SKILLS

  • Extensive global health experience with relevant advanced degree/s (e.g. MD, MPH, DrPH)
  • Technical familiarity with Health, Nutrition, and WASH competencies and programming, with expertise in at least one area
  • Demonstrated experience working with multinational partners, governments and academic institutions
  • Inspirational leader with ability to communicate the vision for the Survive Breakthrough
  • Strong leadership skills, including demonstrated experience in motivating large direct and indirect teams
  • Significant international development and humanitarian experience designing, implementing and evaluating programmes relating to health & nutrition and other relevant child rights programming.
  • Thorough knowledge and record of accomplishment of influencing health & nutrition public and programme policy, and other relevant child rights programming, in development and humanitarian contexts.
  • Demonstrable ability to engage effectively across internal/external stakeholders and communities
  • Knowledge of policy, research and evidence-based methodologies in health & nutrition programming, and other relevant child-focused programming.
  • A clear understanding of and commitment to gender analysis in informing programmes and policy.
  • A combination of technical, research, public advocacy and local experience.
  • Understands that work of development and humanitarian action can be complex and volatile.
  • Country level experience in international development, preferably through long-term assignments.
  • Proven experience delivering results and outputs
  • Energy and drive to create change in a large, complex organisation
  • Highly developed interpersonal and communication skills including influencing, negotiation and coaching – ability to work with people of all levels from CEO to junior staff and across all functions,
  • Experience creating and managing high-performing teams including building shared objectives, quality control, evaluation, motivation, performance management, staff development and training.
  • Commitment to building and supporting a diverse and inclusive technical leadership team
  • Demonstrates ability to make technical expertise relevant and available to inform programmes
  • Engaging with donors and public finance stakeholders across humanitarian, development and developed contexts.
  • An understanding of and commitment to Save the Children’s mission, values and programme approaches.
  • Fluent spoken and written English, with at least one additional language highly desirable, preferably French, Spanish and/or Arabic
  • Senior leadership experience working in Save the Children, another large INGO, donor or multilateral agency

This role can be based in London or any existing Save the Children International Regional or Country office location on approval, provided the successful candidate has proof of eligibility to work from the preferred location.

The Organisation

We employ approximately 25,000 people across the globe and work on the ground in over 100 countries to help children affected by crises, or those that need better healthcare, education and child protection. We also campaign and advocate at the highest levels to realise the right of children and to ensure their voices are heard.

We are working towards three breakthroughs in how the world treats children by 2030:

  • No child dies from preventable causes before their 5th birthday
  • All children learn from a quality basic education and that,
  • Violence against children is no longer tolerated

We know that great people make a great organization, and that our employees play a crucial role in helping us achieve our ambitions for children. We value our people and offer a meaningful and rewarding career, along with a collaborative and inclusive environment where ambition, creativity, and integrity are highly valued.

Application Information:

Please attach a copy of your CV and cover letter with your application, and include details of your salary expectations. A copy of the full role profile can be found at our website.

We need to keep children safe so our selection process, which includes rigorous background checks, reflects our commitment to the protection of children from abuse.

All employees are expected to carry out their duties in accordance with our global anti-harassment policy.

Save the Children does not charge a fee at any stage of the recruitment process.
