About you

We are looking for a Senior Business Advisor to work in an innovative, award winning sustainable development team.  This is an exciting time to join CARE International UK’s Private Sector Engagement team which is at the forefront of working with business to support and implement solutions to enable marginalised people and vulnerable communities living in poverty to have better access to goods, services and livelihoods, tackling gender inequality and climate change.

About the role

We are at the start of implementing our new income channel CARE Advisory Service which this role will be key to ensure CARE is the ‘go to’ partner of choice.  The ideal candidate will preferably be from an advisor or consultant background, to both support the infrastructure and growth strategy of this new service and deliver work for major UK business and partners in creating inclusive and sustainable solutions to create positive impact in global supply chains and operations. 

About CARE

We are one of the world's leading humanitarian and development charities. By 2030, CARE and our partners will support 200 million people from the most vulnerable and excluded communities to overcome poverty and social injustice.

We work in more than 90 countries around the world, saving lives in emergencies and finding long-term solutions to poverty for millions of people every year. We put women and girls in the centre because we know that we cannot overcome poverty until all people have equal rights and opportunities. We believe strongly that business has an important role to play in creating opportunities and reducing barriers for people living in poverty and would like to invite you to be a part of making this change happen.
