Job Title: Senior Programme Coordinator
Working For: UK Women’s Budget Group
Salary: £41,850 plus 5% pension contributions.
Length of Contract: two-year contract
The Women’s Budget Group (WBG) is an independent network of leading academic researchers, policy experts and campaigners. For over 30 years we have been analysing economic policy for its gender and other equality impacts and developing and promoting policies that will increase equality. Our work influences national policy debates and helps build the capacity of women’s organisations and other equality groups campaigning and lobbying for change.
Over the last 18 months, our Global Partnerships and Learning programme (GPL) has worked to support civil society organisations around the world to scrutinize government policy and budgets through training and capacity-building partnerships, global advocacy, and research with the aim of furthering policies that promote gender equality. Funding for this work has been secured for a further two years and we are now seeking a new Senior Programme Coordinator of Global Partnerships and Learning to build on our success so far and lead the project to the next stage of its development.
This is a great opportunity to play an active role in developing WBG’s international work. We are looking for someone who enjoys working as part of a small, committed team, with excellent strategic, communication, organizational and interpersonal skills. You will have experience working to promote gender equality at an international level, project management and working with women’s civil society organisations in the development sector. A commitment to the aims and values of the Women’s Budget Group and Global Partnership and Learning programme is essential.
GPL Programme: We develop collaborative partnerships with civil society organisations around the world. Drawing on our 30+ years of experience, our intention is to work with organisations to support them in engaging effectively in dialogue with their governments to develop policies and allocate resources in ways that improve the lives of women, with an emphasis on the most marginalised women. We do this through bespoke training and capacity-building sessions, which are tailored to meet the specific needs of our partners. In this programme, we seek to work based on the values of collaboration, flexibility, sustainability and solidarity.
