Job description

Are you highly organised with good grant management skills? Are you committed to improving humanitarian outcomes and do you believe that research and innovation should be at the centre of efforts to improve humanitarian effectiveness? Could you communicate effectively with a range of external stakeholders, at all levels of seniority, both verbally and in writing?

We are looking to recruit a highly effective programme officer to join our dynamic humanitarian innovation team. You will provide effective management across our portfolio of innovation grants and support the operational delivery of the programme and innovation management activities.

You will need to demonstrate

  • Experience of coordinating grant management processes or similar, including excellent administration and organisation skills 

  • Excellent communication skills with the ability to liaise with a diverse range of grantees 

  • Ability to understand and monitor financial expenditure reports 

  • A resourceful, proactive approach with the ability to work in a constantly changing environment. 

  • A strong interest in humanitarian innovation and the impact it can have on those living in crises 

About Elrha 

Elrha is a global charity that finds solutions to complex humanitarian problems through research and innovation. We fund and support projects that go on to shape the way in which people across the world are supported during a crisis. We are based in the UK, but our roles have a global reach. We’re an established and respected part of the humanitarian community, working closely and meaningfully with our fellow networks and actors to make change happen. 

Remote Working 

Elrha employees are currently working remotely within the UK in line with UK Government guidance. In Spring 2022 we will transition to flexible and hybrid ways of working (i.e. a mixture of remote/home and office-based working) as social distancing restrictions ease. 

We are happy to discuss flexible working options at interview. 

Commitment to Diversity & Inclusion 

Elrha is committed to diversity and equality of opportunity in all aspects of our work both external and internal. We strive to be an inclusive employer and particularly encourage applications from under-represented groups such as returning parents or carers who are re-entering work after a career break, people who are LGBTQ+, from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic backgrounds, with a disability, impairment, learning difference or long-term condition, with caring responsibilities, from different nations and regions, and from less advantaged socioeconomic backgrounds. 

Salaries and benefits 

Elrha is committed to paying staff in a fair and equitable way and will benchmark all salary offers in line with the pay of existing staff. 

Elrha also has a comprehensive benefits package including 25 days holiday entitlement which increases year on year, 5% employer pension contribution (3% employee contribution) and life cover. 

Pre-employment Checks 

Any employment with Elrha will be subject to the following checks prior to your start date: 

  • a satisfactory police record check to include a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check and/or an International Criminal Record Check (If applicable) 

  • receipt of satisfactory references 

  • proof of eligibility to work in the national location for this role 

Elrha is a wholly owned subsidiary of Save the Children. We are able to benefit from a range of support services provided by Save the Children UK, including recruitment systems. For this reason you will be directed to Save the Children UK’s job portal upon clicking ‘apply’. 

Please ensure you read the full job description and complete the Personal Statement as requested in the application process. We look forward to hearing from you.
