Deputy Team Leader and Senior Advisor – Women Lead in Emergencies

Location: The Foundry, London SE11 (with travel up to 20%) - hybrid working with flexibility

Salary: £53,500

Contract type: Permanent

Closing date: 31 May 2024


Job purpose and key responsibilities

We are looking for a Deputy Team Leader to help us to achieve our ambition for women’s equal and meaningful participation and leadership in humanitarian and nexus programming.

As member of the global Women Lead in Emergencies team, you’ll provide high-quality and responsive technical services to the CARE confederation and partners. You will work closely with the Team Leader to deliver the Women Lead in Emergencies’ strategy and workplans, including leading on the Women Lead in Emergencies Community of Practice and MEAL function, and providing direct technical assistance to CARE offices and partners on all aspects of their Women Lead programming.

Why work for us?

It’s a great time to join both CARE International UK and the global Women Lead in Emergencies team as we embark on an exciting period of growth and change. CARE International UK has a new Chief Executive and a refreshed Vision 2030 strategy focused on Local and Women’s Leadership, Humanitarian Action and Climate Justice. You will be joining the Women Lead in Emergencies team at an exciting time as we expand the team to scale up our Women Lead programming with CARE offices around the world.

About you

We’re looking for an experienced technical advisor with expertise in gender, governance, and monitoring, evaluation and learning, and practical experience of working in humanitarian and crisis-affected settings. You will be a feminist with experience of working with women-led organisations. You will be excited by the prospect of becoming a specialist in the CARE Women Lead model (if you’re not already) and working flexibly with project teams and community-based women’s groups in diverse contexts to adapt the approach to their needs.

As this is both a new role and team, you will enjoy collaborating with others to build and test new systems and ways of working. As this is a global team, in addition to English, you will be comfortable working in one other of the CARE global languages (Arabic, French and/or Spanish).
