HelpAge International is the secretariat to a global network of organisations promoting the right of all older people to lead dignified, healthy and secure lives.
We aim to extend the reach and influence of the HelpAge Global Network to all those in a position to help bring about our vision for older people – including governments, policy makers, the private sector, and academic institutions.
In the Africa region we do this through a combination of programme, policy and communications work focused on our core themes of social protection, humanitarian response and health and care.
The Regional Director will be based in Nairobi, Kenya and is responsible for ensuring HelpAge International delivers high quality work for older people across the region, in line with our theory of change. The Regional Director is also responsible for developing the network in the region, ensuring strong levels of collaboration with network members and other partners.
In HelpAge International’s decentralised leadership structure, the Regional Director also plays a key role at the global level as part of the Global Directors Team, working with other executive directors and the Board to ensure that the organisation delivers effectively on its mission, strategy and values.
