Job Title: Advocacy Advisor
Working For: BRAC UK
We are BRAC. For close to 50 years we’ve been driven by a single goal; creating opportunities for people living in poverty to realise their potential. From community health to humanitarian response, gender equality to food security and education to ultra-poor graduation, we fight poverty as an act of justice. Integrity, innovation and impact define our drive, and we are proud that this is recognized, with BRAC being ranked as the number one NGO in the world, for five consecutive years.
We are ‘the world’s biggest family’; with our Headquarters in Bangladesh, we work across 11 countries to enable 110 million people to transform their lives.
At BRAC UK – an awareness- and resource-raising affiliate of BRAC – we recognize the challenges the current climate presents, and we are ready to tackle them. By scaling our investment in advocacy, we’re committing to change the profile of the issues that matter most to the poorest people on the planet, and we’re committing to change our influence over them – establishing BRAC as a credible and influential Southern voice … with your help.
You are exceptional. You understand policy change and you know how to make it happen. You can navigate the corridors of Westminster and Whitehall with ease, and you have a track record in designing high-impact advocacy campaigns that deliver. You can capture and communicate political intel and use it to inform tactics. You are confident building relationships; from sector allies to high-political targets, and you recognize their value in positioning BRAC as a central Southern voice. You are excited at the prospect of working to re-affirm the UK government’s global commitment to ending extreme poverty.
