ActionAid is a leading international development charity, founded in 1972, which works in more than 45 countries across Africa, Asia and Latin America. The charity’s local staff provide immediate, hands-on support to women and children living on the margins of survival. And, as well as providing emergency relief, ActionAid demands action at the local, national and international level and works to achieve lasting change.
ActionAid UK is part of the ActionAid International Federation and almost all of the people and partners who run ActionAid programmes are from the developing world. This means its staff are on the ground experiencing poverty at first hand. They see day-to-day how poverty affects people’s lives, and are uniquely placed to give a voice to the women and children who suffer most.
ActionAid puts women and girls at the centre of its work. The charity ensures girls go to and stay in school, works to end gender-based violence and helps women to prepare for and recover from disasters. Additionally, ActionAid trains women in the skills they need to earn a living.
ActionAid recruits for a variety of different roles, including policy advisers, fundraising officers, campaigners and HR managers.
The charity offers many employee benefits. In particular through the new ActionAid in Action scheme, each year a number of UK employees are supported to travel to a selected host country in order to gain first-hand experience of the organisation’s in-country work. There are also frequent secondments whereby employees work, for a period, in another department or different country in the Federation. Job shares are encouraged as well.
Other employee benefits include the opportunity to learn and develop new skills, an AVIVA pension scheme, childcare vouchers and access to free and confidential advice services.
