World Jewish Relief is the UK Jewish community’s international development and humanitarian agency – tackling Jewish poverty and reaching beyond our community. We create opportunities for those out of work to become self-reliant; bring dignity to older people and provide the UK Jewish community’s response at times of international disasters.

The post holder will join World Jewish Relief’s Programmes team, an energetic and ambitious 10 person department.

This role will play a leading part in strengthening our response capabilities, impact, and accountability of our humanitarian portfolio. The post will drive our response to international disasters, building programmes and partnerships to support both relief and recovery efforts. The establishment and maintenance of effective local partnerships with credible local actors is essential to develop our Disaster Preparedness Initiative. The role also requires representing World Jewish Relief at key humanitarian networks such as START, the Jewish Coalition for Disaster Relief, Bond Humanitarian working groups and Humanitarian Directors meetings.

We invite and welcome applicants from diverse backgrounds. We encourage candidates of different ethnicities, socio-economic backgrounds, race, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation and of faith or none that meet the criteria set out for this role.
