Context of Role.
Girl Effect’s Gender team integrates gender expertise into our social and behavioural change programming for girls, and into the ways we work as an organisation.
We are looking for a Gender Specialist to support the design and delivery of our programmes in geographies across Asia and Africa, to promote positive changes in health, economic empowerment and/or education.
The Gender Specialist will also ensure that Girl Effect remains up to date on the latest thinking, developments and evidence in the field of gender and support colleagues to mainstream best practice throughout the organisation.
You will be part of Girl Effect’s global Impact team, a multidisciplinary group of researchers, and experts in safeguarding, youth participation and social and behaviour change communications. You will also work with colleagues in our Programmes and Create teams to bring our programmes to life by supporting our country offices and product teams, who develop online programming through Springster [a global, social-first digital programme where girls discover stories that make them feel more connected, more visible and more valued] and our Chatbot.
What You’ll Do
Who You Are
What Else You Should Know
We are hugely ambitious for our future and we are looking for people who are driven by this to change the world for girls.
Our teams are a diverse mix across sectors (non-profit and commercial) and specialisms (from Brand and Creative through to Gender and Insight). You’ll learn and grow in an environment that will challenge you to think and work with a fresh perspective.
At Girl Effect, you can expect to work somewhere where you will be stretched and developed in your role, a place where you can build your career and work with talented, engaged people committed to our cause to create a lasting impact. Shortlisted candidates will be assessed on our organisational values at the interview stage. The successful candidate(s) will be expected to adhere to our safeguarding policy. We encourage candidates to read and understand our safeguarding policy, the executive summary of which can be found here. We have zero-tolerance to all forms of violence against children, beneficiaries and staff.
