About us

Christian Aid exists to create a world where everyone can live a full life, free from poverty. We are a global movement of people, churches, and local organisations who passionately champion dignity, equality, and justice worldwide. We are the changemakers, the peacemakers, the mighty of heart.

Christian Aid has a vision: a world free from poverty. To do that we are committed to exposing the scandal of poverty, and to challenging and changing the systems that favour the rich and powerful over the poor and marginalised. As an international development NGO, Christian Aid has been actively campaigning internationally, regionally, and nationally on the root causes of global poverty, including key issues of our time such as climate change and economic justice.

About the role

As part of the Global Advocacy and Policy team in the Policy, Public Affairs and Campaigns (PPC) Department, the post-holder will support the development and implementation of national advocacy strategies across Christian Aid’s country offices in Africa. This role will support African country staff and partners to raise capacity and delivery of national advocacy in relation to our priority campaigns; as well as collaborating with them to deliver impactful global and multi-country advocacy strategies.

This is a key role to strengthen the linkage between programmes and advocacy. Supporting the Senior Pan-Africa Advocacy Advisor and the Global Advocacy Lead, the post holder will help to integrate this work into our national programmes and where relevant participate in regional and international advocacy initiatives.

About you

We are looking for a strategic thinker, with a track record of implementing successful campaigns and advocacy strategies that brought about policy changes. You will need to be a great team player with proven experience of building constructive working relationships with a diverse range of stakeholders, and of working in networks or coalitions. Experience in working with ecumenical and faith-based organisations is an advantage.

The successful candidate will have a good understanding of the African contexts in which we work, and the ways in which our global campaigns and other priority issues apply to these contexts, including at the regional level. We are looking for a good influencer with a strong understanding of how change happens on effective advocacy and campaigning strategies, as well as with the experience of working with African civil society, on advocacy, campaigning, or communications. Good knowledge in online social media campaigning, NGO programme experience, experience in managing multi-country advocacy projects, as well as the ability to speak French is also desired.
