Start Network is made up of more than 50 aid agencies across five continents, ranging from large international organisations to national NGOs. Together, our aim is to transform humanitarian action through innovation, fast funding, early action, and localisation.
We aim to shift from a centralised network model to a dispersed ‘network of networks’. In this vision, regional or country-based hubs made up of local and national organisations as well as international NGOs will lead responses and drive innovations that will foster a better humanitarian system.
As the Senior Network Development Adviser you will play a crucial role in delivering the transformation of the Start Network. You will advise on the incubation of and engagement with the five pilot hubs and with potential future hubs globally.
The focus will be on brokering partnerships and supporting hubs to work together to co-develop them, both within hub leadership teams and as a collective of hubs. At the same time, you will provide a linking function for hubs to engage with the wider Start Network team, and the team to develop programming in collaboration with hubs.
We are looking for someone who can foster relationships and create engagement strategies to enable hubs to sustainably form, and the network as a whole to move closer to the network’s vision.
