For almost 40 years, across nearly 50 countries, Action Against Hunger has led the global fight against hunger, saving the lives of children and their families in crises, and supporting vulnerable communities to improve their livelihoods and access to essential services.
Tragically in the last three years the number of hungry and malnourished people in the world has risen. The causes for this are often political, and if we are to reverse this trend, new commitments and effective action is needed from governments around the world.
The next Nutrition for Growth Summit (N4G) in 2020 is set to be a critical year for galvanising government action. In this role you will lead on a campaign to develop and communicate Action Against Hunger’s advocacy asks in the lead up to the Summit, primarily targeting UK audiences but also supporting Action Against Hunger teams in other major capitals to influence their governments too.
An exciting new opportunity has now arisen within Action against Hunger's Operations Department. Working closely with colleagues across the Operations, Communications and Supporter Engagement teams in the UK, and across the global Action Against Hunger network, the post holder will develop and deliver creative campaign actions to galvanise our supporters, chefs in particular, as well as engage political audiences.
The role is an exciting opportunity to lead on a diverse range of activities from policy research and development, event organising, campaign planning with food industry supporters, and developing media content. The post holder will need to be someone able to work collaboratively, creatively, and using their own initiative to inspire ambitious government commitments in 2020. We are always looking to recruit passionate and dedicated individuals who are keen to join our team and contribute to the fight against child hunger.
