Job description

Saferworld is an independent international organisation working to prevent violent conflict and build safer lives. We work with people affected by conflict to improve their safety and sense of security, and conduct wider research and analysis.


 The Programme Support and Learning team operates under the auspices of the Director of International Programmes, and leads on:


  • Providing ongoing accompaniment and support to Saferworld teams and partners across our country and regional-based programmes: in the quality design and execution of their strategies and implementation plans, in their endeavours to achieve effective and lasting change, and in our capacity to learn and adapt from evidential experience
  • Our institutional approach to programme strategy and design, learning from programme results (MEL), with a particular focus on cross-organisational learning;
  • Coordinating the revision of our programme partnership approach and related materials, ensuring our partners have greater influence in decision-making;
  • Ensuring our programmes are growing from gender sensitive to gender transformative, and supporting country programmes in strengthening initiatives, tools and ways in which peacebuilding programmes can contribute towards gender equality and women’s empowerment; and
  • Identifying new approaches and methods of working which enable Saferworld to deliver programme support and learning in innovative and effective ways.


The team is committed to supporting teams and partners in designing holistic programmes that use our organisational theory of change as the starting point to create greater systemic change in the context where they are working. All programmes use systemic conflict analysis, context analysis, power/actor mapping, outcome mapping, and appropriate monitoring and evaluation of behaviour and relationship-change to create strategies to guide their design.


We want to recruit a creative professional who enjoys working cross-organisationally with programme, policy, advocacy and research teams.  You will be an all-rounder, with experience in:


  • Programming approaches for security, justice and peacebuilding – including approaches that challenge gender norms, are gender-sensitive and transformative, and contribute to reducing gender-based violence – and can design activities in conflict-affected and fragile settings
  • Linking strategies to programming that include policy, advocacy and research
  • MEL processes and frameworks that are flexible enough to allow for built-in adaptation
