  • Structuring the alliance to ensure that our work respects the values of innovation, transparency and accountability.

To be successful you will be educated to degree level with robust analytical skills and have shown ability to raise resources. Although you don’t need to be a humanitarian, some relevant experience is ideal and you will be open to new ideas and cultures. Creative, curious and passionate, you must be comfortable working with others. You will have demonstrable ability in building relationships and experience of managing staff and partners is critical.
