About the Education Partnerships Group (EPG):
Incubated within UK education charity, Ark, the Education Partnerships Group (EPG) is an international not-for-profit consultancy that partners with governments to shape and strengthen their education systems. Our vision is that governments in low and middle-income countries are equipped to ensure that every child goes to school and learns. We believe that supporting government to design and implement contextually relevant and evidence-based public policy is the best way to drive sustainable progress towards achieving quality education for all.
We assist governments across three critical stages of the policy process:
- Generating and using research to inform policy
- Supporting the design and development of policy
- Supporting the piloting and scaling of policy reform initiatives
Today, EPG works in five countries in Sub-Saharan Africa: South Africa, Ghana, Sierra Leone, Cote d’Ivoire, and Zambia.
In our work, we prioritise a genuine understanding of context rather than assuming ideas can simply be transplanted from one country to another. We also focus on the system – the roles, responsibilities, and relationships of all the different actors – rather than working on one policy area in isolation.
COVID has demonstrated more than ever the importance of effective education systems capable of coordinating and targeting limited resources through evidence-based approaches for impactful education service delivery. With growing demand for our services, EPG is currently focused on seizing those opportunities to expand our footprint in current programme countries and new geographies.
About the role:
The Programme Manager is a critical role at EPG, driving the planning, execution and monitoring of our projects in partnership with governments across sub-Saharan Africa. Programme Managers drive the establishment of new projects, in some cases in new geographies for EPG, lead strategic engagement with Ministry officials and other stakeholders and play an important role in the design and delivery of technical assistance to Ministries of Education. These roles may be based within the relevant Ministry of Education or in an office with EPG’s other programme staff. In some instances, these roles may be home-based, depending on location. The role may require significant remote working and thus personal initiative and time management will be critical.
The right candidate will be passionate about the role education plays in transforming lives and see this role as an opportunity to support the expansion of EPG’s system-wide approach to supporting governments to plan for and implement reform to improve learning outcomes globally. They will find EPG an exciting and entrepreneurial environment and see this role as an opportunity to have a positive impact on improving children’s learning in low- and middle-income countries.

GGON UK Coalition Coordinator
Position: GGON UK Coalition Coordinator, Global Gas and Oil Network
Location: Flexible. Must be willing to travel to London for certain meetings.
Time commitment: One year contract with potential to renew. Part-time (We expect approximately 2.5 days per week. Exact hours to be discussed with successful candidate)
Salary: £40,000 - £50,000 depending on experience.
Reporting: To the Director of Global Gas and Oil Network, but also accountable to members of the UK GGON coalition.
About the Global Gas and Oil Network
The Global Gas and Oil Network (GGON) is an international non-profit network of civil society organisations established to support global efforts to stop fossil fuel expansion and catalyse a just and equitable managed decline of existing production in line with limiting global warming to the ambitious goal of the Paris Agreement (1.5 ºC). Over 200 organisations globally are engaged in the Network, and this number continues to grow.
GGON is supporting efforts to stop new oil and gas extraction and infrastructure, including campaigns to limit public and private finance of oil and gas development, as well as legal, research and communications strategies, to thereby enable ambitious action from decision makers for an equitable oil and gas phase-out, and supporting. The Network hosts strategic gatherings, provides coordination, research and analysis and is working with partners to build a community of practice. GGON operates with a small secretariat that is guided by a strategic advisory committee.
About the role
The UK is one of the largest producers of oil and gas globally, and is intending to expand this production further. Because of historical fossil fuel use, it has a strong responsibility to act on climate change. Its relative wealth and diverse economy make it well-placed to be an international climate leader and to commit to phase out oil and gas in a swift and timely manner. Responding to these dynamics, GGON has developed a coalition of organisations who are working together to achieve the network’s goals in the UK. This critical role will coordinate this UK coalition, helping to ensure its effective and strategic collaboration.
As the number of organisations working on phasing out oil and gas in the UK has grown, so too have the number of additional coalitions, project groups and networks. The GGON UK Coordinator will liaise closely with the conveners of these groups to ensure that there is close alignment between them and that key developments in these groups are fed back to the GGON UK coalition members.
Coordination within UK
● Coordinate, organise and facilitate (currently monthly) meetings of the GGON UK coalition.
● Compile, and circulate meeting notes and follow-up on action points.
● Organise at least two in person strategy days per year.
● Work with other relevant existing and emerging coalitions working on oil and gas supply in the UK to establish cleaner coordination with these groups.
● Expand the GGON UK coalition membership in a strategic and inclusive way, with a particular focus on improving the diversity of the network.
● Incubate coalitions, activities and task forces: From time to time, there may be value in establishing sub-groups which would bring in expertise from other partners for specific goals, both national or international.
● Provide a strategic link between UK organisations in GGON UK and the international GGON network
● Help understand how the international network can support or add value to the work in the UK and vice versa.
● Act as a contact point between groups in the GGON network outside the UK and organisations in the UK, rooting campaigns in the UK within the global movement to phase out oil and gas
● Help identify how issues and groups in the UK are represented in GGON’s international thematic working groups, GGON’s Strategic Advisory Committee (SAC) and international strategy discussions. Identify ways to cooperate if resources are available.
Campaign and advocacy support
● From time to time, there may be a need for the Coordinator to provide support for developing materials or liaising with external contacts, for example to draft op-eds or facilitate meetings with members of government.
● Summarise activities, progress and outcomes of the GGON UK coalition with the GGON secretariat to satisfy reporting requirements.
● Excellent written and verbal communication skills
● Significant experience organising and facilitating meetings
● Experience of planning and delivering campaigns or projects
● Strong experience of working in coalitions
● Highly collaborative
● Ability to work independently and as part of a team
● Knowledge of climate and/or energy policies desirable
● Knowledge of the structure and workings of the UK Government and Parliament desirable
