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. Currently the Africa Programme includes projects which provide support to survivors of descent-based slavery in Niger and Mauritania; initiatives aimed at ending forced child begging in Senegal, Niger, Nigeria and Mali, a project using local implementing regulations to end Child Domestic Work in Tanzania, as well as awareness raising and advocacy at the local, national and international level.

This exciting new 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.

We are looking for someone who can embody our values and who shares our passion for fighting slavery. With partners in six countries and a complex programme of work to deliver, the Africa programme requires a high degree of efficiency in administration, planning and financial management.

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.

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

Salary: £29,486

Application deadline: 28 March 2019
