A major international gender equality and humanitarian NGO is looking for a Policy and Advocacy Advisor to lead its work on girls' education in emergencies. 

Working as part of its high-impact Policy and Programmes Directorate, you'll have responsibility for developing and implementing education policy and advocacy strategies, working with influential partner organisations including the UK Government, UN Agencies and other I/NGOs. You'll also lead on producing innovative research reports, policy briefings and analysis for both internal and external audiences, ensuring that education is a core element of campaigning for gender equality.

As such, you'll have experience of working closely with high-level government and civil society stakeholders in both a relationship management and policy influencing capacity, along with excellent research and communication skills. A background in international development or education policy is not essential, however, experience and understanding of how INGOs and their various key players work is preferred, along with a passion for and understanding of gender equality issues.

This is a full-time, permanent position paying circa 41,000 p.a. Applications will be reviewed and submitted on a rolling basis until the job is filled: please note that interviews will also be conducted on this basis. Application process is CV initially, however, a covering letter at a later stage may be requested.

If you are interested in this position, please send your most recent CV to harry.marven@harrishill.co.uk . Please note that only suitable candidates will be contacted.
