Africa Programme Officer

This is an exciting newly created position to support the Africa Programme team in the administration of a range of anti-slavery projects across Africa. This role is likely to support the delivery of new projects in Mali and Mauritania initially, but this may change over time.

This exciting role will be responsible for supporting the Africa Programme team in ensuring the efficient and effective implementation of project activities (including advocacy, research, publications, training, country visits, meetings and conferences), as well as contributing to donor reports and applications for new projects. The role will also involve monitoring slavery-related developments in Africa, attending meetings on behalf of the Africa Programme and responding to external enquiries. The role would be 3 days per week for 12 months, initially with the possibility of increasing in hours and or contract length at a later stage, funding permitting.

We are looking for someone who can embody our values and who shares our passion for fighting slavery. The successful candidate will be someone who is proactive and can use their own initiative, someone skilled in project administration and planning and can be flexible to meet the demands of this growing programme.

The Programme Officer role would suit someone who is extremely well-organized, who pays attention to detail and who enjoys record-keeping. Furthermore, the work will require communications with partners in French and the translation of reports and written correspondence. Fluency in both French and English is therefore essential, while fluency in Arabic would be an added advantage

If you think this role fits with your expertise and ambition, we would love to hear from you.
