We are looking for an exceptional Parliamentary Advocacy Officer to join our Parliamentary Team and lead our parliamentary work on child health.

The post-holder will lead relationships with UK and to a lesser extent, European Parliamentarians on child health and child survival. Globally, they will work strategically as part of the ACTION Global Health Advocacy Partnership to mobilise greater resources and political commitment for improved child health and child survival.
This role is suitable for someone with public affairs or political advocacy experience, preferably in the UK, who understands the way that political decisions impact global poverty and want to influence these decisions.
