Job description

Duration: Two Years Fixed-Term (extension subject to funding)

Location: London or Cardiff

Are you a highly collaborative and empowering manager with technical expertise in WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene) and supporting innovation to scale? Are you committed to improving the effectiveness of humanitarian response through innovation? Are you a strategic thinker as well as operationally highly competent? We are looking for an experienced Innovation Manager to help develop our WASH and Scaling areas of focus. This post will be part of an exciting new phase in the HIF’s development and a growing HIF team.

We’re a global charity, working to find solutions to complex humanitarian problems through research and innovation. We fund and support work that goes on to shape the way in which people across the world are supported during a crisis.

We are based in London and Cardiff but our roles have a global reach. As an established and respected part of the humanitarian community, we work closely and meaningfully with our fellow networks and actors to make change happen.

Our Humanitarian Innovation Fund (HIF) supports organisations and individuals to identify, nurture and share innovative and scalable solutions to the challenges facing effective humanitarian assistance.

This recruitment may be used for similar vacancies in the future.


We are committed to the safeguarding and protection of vulnerable people in our work. This post is subject to a range of vetting checks including a criminal records disclosure. 

We recognise the positive value of diversity and promote equality, and are committed to improving employment opportunities for minority groups. We welcome and encourage applications from people of all backgrounds, particularly from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) and disabled candidates, as BAME and people with disabilities are currently under-represented throughout our work. We also welcome applications from LGB and Trans, and non-binary candidates. 

The role will be appointed at the start of the salary band advertised, unless there are exceptional circumstances. This allows for incremental progression within the role and movement up the scale
