The Role: Resource Mobilisation Lead - FlexOM


The environment that Save the Children operates in is changing, with geopolitical changes such as Brexit, shifting donor requirements, and broader trends within our sector such as the shrinking space for INGOs. In response to these external pressures and trends, Save the Children must change the way it operates and become flexible, resilient, and fit for future.
In March 2020, the Save the Children Board took the decision to incorporate two additional operating models within Save the Children´s structure: Save the Children National Offices and SCI US. The project managing this change is called the Flexible Operating Model project (Flex OM), and is responsible for the development and implementation of these operating models under the guiding principles of maximising our impact for children, maintaining the integrity and cohesion of our movement, and guaranteeing our independence as a child rights organisation.

The implementation of this new model implies the redefinition of some processes, and functions as the mandate, the nature and the governance of these new entities is different from the country office model.
