Job description

12 months’ maternity cover

Initially home-based, with the option to work from Embrace’s offices in Amersham, as required 

Are you inspired to bring hope and lasting change to some of the poorest and most marginalised people living in the Middle East, through education, healthcare and community development projects? Do you want to take the lead in managing and nurturing high-impact, locally owned projects delivered through Christian partner organisations, helping people of all faiths and none to free themselves from a life of poverty and injustice? Are you able to manage grant-funded international programmes through local partner organisations?

Embrace the Middle East is an international Christian charity helping people of all faiths and none to free themselves from a life of poverty and injustice. Our Christian partners in Egypt, Lebanon, Israel, Palestine and Iraq run hospitals, clinics, schools and centres for people with disabilities. They provide support services for refugees, enable women's empowerment, work for community development and offer emergency humanitarian relief

Embrace the Middle East is looking to recruit two Programme & Partnership Managers, this autumn on a 1-year fixed term contract, to work within a close-knit team to support, encourage and enable local Christian organisations. Walking and working with them as they deliver high-impact programmes to benefit communities in need of assistance - helping them to realise their God-given potential.

To succeed you will have strong programme management experience, demonstrating an ability to support a portfolio of programmes in Egypt and Lebanon to develop high-impact projects and analyse narrative and financial reports.

Working 36.5 per week, you will work closely with local partners to monitor and evaluate project success and support their organisational development, ensuring accountability to both the end beneficiaries and our UK-based supporters. This is an excellent time to join this inspired team and to shape the implementation of the charity’s new 5-year strategy – Hope in Action.

This is a collaborative team role, working with colleagues to bring hope and healing to those whom we serve. You will be part of an organisation that values everyone’s contribution, pays a fair wage as well as attractive benefits, and is committed to support your continuing professional development.

We are seeking applicants who actively practise Embrace’s Christian values* and want to join us in strengthening relationships with our broad base of local Christian partner organisations in the Middle East.
