ACTIONAID WORKS WITH WOMEN AND CHILDREN WHO ARE EXCLUDED AND LIVE IN
POVERTY, AS THEY TAKE THE LEAD IN CLAIMING THEIR HUMAN RIGHTS, AND
CHANGING SYSTEMS IN SOCIETY THAT ARE UNJUST. THE WOMEN IN THESE
COMMUNITIES TAKE THE LEAD - THEY DECIDE THEIR PRIORITIES, AND WE
SUPPORT THEM AS THEY ENGAGE WITH THE REST OF THEIR COMMUNITY AND THE
WIDER POWER STRUCTURES IN SOCIETY, TO BRING ABOUT CHANGE FOR THE
BETTER THAT BENEFITS THE WHOLE COMMUNITY. WE ALSO WORK TOGETHER TO
HOLD OUR GOVERNMENTS AND INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTIONS TO ACCOUNT,
CAMPAIGNING SIDE BY SIDE TO ACHIEVE MEANINGFUL LONG-TERM CHANGE TO
CREATE A MORE JUST AND CARING WORLD.
ACTIONAID IRELAND’S STRATEGY **APPLY ON THE WEBSITE** IS TO CREATE A
JUST AND CARING WORLD WHERE WOMEN’S HUMAN RIGHTS ARE RESPECTED
THROUGH ADDRESSING THE STRUCTURAL CAUSES OF GENDER BASED VIOLENCE
(GBV), PROMOTING WOMEN’S LEADERSHIP IN HUMANITARIAN CONTEXTS AND
AMPLIFYING FEMINIST ALTERNATIVES ON ECONOMIC AND CLIMATE JUSTICE.
ACTIONAID IRELAND’S STRATEGY ALSO MAKES CLEAR COMMITMENTS TO
ANTI-RACISM, SHIFTING POWER AND DECOLONISATION, EMBEDDING LEARNING AND
EVALUATION AND SAFEGUARDING. HUMAN RIGHTS BASED APPROACHES ARE AT THE
HEART OF ACTIONAID’S WORK.
This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced programming
advisor, with a strong understanding of international development
programming addressing GBV and promoting women’s economic
empowerment. This position is newly established within ActionAid
Ireland and you will work as part of a passionate, committed
programme’s team to deliver on our organisational Strategy. You will
be committed to shifting power, locally led development and applying
intersectional feminist approaches throughout programme and policy
You will have strong experience in GBV and gender transformative
approaches and the ability to link this experience to relevant policy
dialogues. You will play a key role in the design and implementation
of high-quality programming, particularly in responding to, and
addressing the structural causes of GBV. Within our largest
multi-country Women’s Rights Programme, you will provide technical
expertise and leadership on approaches that prevent, mitigate, and
respond to GBV - ensuring they are survivor centred. You will work
closely with women’s rights officers and strengthen skills and
knowledge across the programme in the areas of GBV and women’s
rights. You will coordinate learning and knowledge sharing among
ActionAid staff and partners and support MEL systems to be rooted in
gender and power analysis.
You will be a champion for women’s and girls’ rights and
passionate about feminist change and leadership. You will be an
empathetic and supportive colleague, able to build trusting and
authentic relationships with colleagues and partners.
