We want a world where no one dies from hunger. Life-threatening hunger is predictable, preventable and treatable. Join Action Against Hunger and together we will stop it in its tracks.

Action Against Hunger is an optimistic, inspiring place to work. We want passionate and dedicated people to help build a better world. We’re a creative team made up of people with a wide range of talents, styles and expertise. But we are united in our relentless dedication to end world hunger. No challenge is too big. With you we can do it. Join us.

Action Against Hunger is committed to changing the way we work so that we better recognise, respect and strengthen the leadership and capacity of local and national actors. To support this a revised Local Partnerships Policy was approved in 2023. As we work to strengthen our Local Partnership approach, we are also further exploring what Localisation means to us in practice and re-thinking our role as an international actor.

We recognise that there is not a ‘one size fits all’ approach to Localisation and while certain efforts may be appropriate in some contexts, they won’t work in others. Similarly, what might work for some INGOs, might not necessarily work for Action Against Hunger. It is therefore important that this process is built on the practices, experiences and views of Action Against Hunger staff and especially those working closest with the people, communities and the local actors we work with.

This Project is part of Action Against Hunger’s international Evaluation, Learning and Accountability (ELA) Project – an international Project funded by the Action Against Hunger Network to strengthen evaluation, learning and accountability across the organisation. The Project is led by the ELA Team, which sits in Action Against Hunger UK’s Operations Department. The ELA Team works in close cooperation with international Working Groups representing Action Against Hunger staff across the Network.

We are looking for a Localisation Advisor to join the ELA Team and take the lead on driving Action Against Hunger’ Localisation movement in cooperation with an international Working Group(s). The Localisation Advisor will play a critical role in turning plans and policies into practice through the provision of operational and programmatic expertise on Localisation and Local Partnership.

We’re looking for an individual who is familiar with the Localisation agenda and has experience working in a large, complex international humanitarian/development organisation. Experience in-country and/or experience in organisational change processes is desirable. The candidate should be interested in discussions around accountability and passionate about making meaningful changes across the organisation in order to strengthen accountability and improve the sector as a whole.

Closing Date: 9 February 2024 at 23:59 Interview Date: W/c 19th February 2024.
