Job description

Location: London or Cardiff (although all our staff are currently working at home. This situation is likely to continue until at least June 2021)

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 large portfolio of innovation grants and support the operational delivery of the programme and innovation management activities.

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.

To be successful, you will need to be flexible and proactive, with the ability to work well in a busy and constantly changing environment. You will have strong organisational and coordination skills and be able to show experience in grant management.

If you feel you have the skills and experience we’re looking for, please review the full job description for further details. Please ensure you complete the personal statement as part of the application process to explain how you feel you meet the requirements of the role and why you feel this is the next career move for you.

We look forward to hearing from you
