A great opportunity to work for an organisation that is making a positive difference to the lives of people worldwide, a friendly and supportive culture, working with values driven and highly engaged colleagues, work life balance and flexible working.

We are looking for a energetic Global Project Officer at Practical Action to support our work in delivering Renewable Energy to Refugees (RE4R).

About the Role: 

You will support the Renewable Energy for Refugees Team to develop, co-ordinate and quality assure the global outreach of the project’s key outcome, building on the project’s in-country implementation to achieve global impact and aiming to re-shape the response to humanitarian energy needs.

You will develop activities and outputs to ensure that learning, evidence and advocacy, drawn from the project’s work in Jordan and Rwanda, is used to demonstrate the benefits and long-term viability of market-led renewable energy services in displaced settings. This aims to ensure that the positive outcomes of the project are delivered within the project timespan, but also beyond this, in the form of long-term systemic change, leading to more sustainable, and wider-scale impact beyond RE4R’s geographic and temporal boundaries.

In addition, you’ll have an understanding of relevant knowledge/communications tools and approaches to build awareness amongst targeted stakeholders. Some exposure to the international energy sector relating to energy access and international development would be an advantage
