As global Head of Digital and Technology we can offer you the chance to use your skills to bring the fight against poverty and injustice into the digital era.

ActionAid senior leadership is committed to a digital transformation that encompasses all aspects of our work, from our programmes on the ground, to fundraising and campaigning, to internal systems and capacity. Developing the strategy to drive these changes – and championing the culture changes needed to deliver it - will be your job. At the same time, you will also oversee the technology and innovation investments and choices that flow from the digital transformation strategy.

The role requires an entrepreneurial networker who can co-create a vision with stakeholders spread across our 40+ member countries, and help senior management to understand and drive changes in culture, skills and ways of working. You will also bring enough technical knowledge to effectively oversee a small global IT team and oversee the development of coherent technology architecture.

If you have the leadership skills, digital vision and technical knowledge to pull this off, we would be delighted to hear from you. Please send your CV and motivation cover letter to hrworkspace@actionaid.org by 27 May, 2018.

You must highlight in the motivation letter how specifically you meet the criteria outlined in the job description, and provide proof of eligibility to work in your chosen location. 

Due to high volumes of applications received, if you do not receive feedback on your application, that means you have been unsuccessful on this occasion. We reserve the right to withdraw any of our vacancies at any time.

ActionAid is committed to providing equal opportunities for everyone regardless of their background. We value diversity and welcome applications from all sections of the community, in particular women who are currently underrepresented in senior positions. We regret that agency candidates will not be considered.
