Job Function
Programme Manager

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an DRR & Emergencies Programme Manager to join a fantastic international animal charity.

Flexible hybrid working arrangements at the London office or the option of being home-based.

As Disaster, Risk, and Resilience (DRR) and Emergencies Programme Manager, you will work within the Global Programmes department to develop a comprehensive DRR strategy to guide all the charity's work and will also manage the emergencies programme.

The world is becoming riskier because of environmental degradation and climate change, increasingly contracted and complex emergencies, and increasing inequality, insecurity, and endemic poverty. Increasingly, working animals and their communities need strategic support to be resilient in the face of increasingly complex, cyclical, and impactful crises whilst also reducing and mitigating against everyday risks. The charity work aims to reduce risk, build resilience, and respond to emergencies.

Key responsibilities include:

  • Co-design the DRR mainstreaming approach in line with the charity's strategy. Advise on how the mainstreamed DRR approach as well as its emergencies work align with and contribute to relevant global frameworks, policies, and partner work (e.g. the Grand Bargain, the Sendai Framework, LEGS (Livestock Emergency Guidelines & Standards, etc.)
  • Develop a strategy paper on working animals and approaches to DRR that support them and then lead on the deliverables and implementation plan. e.g. Help map the charity's existing DRR and emergency response-related capacities (and compare it to required capacities)
  • Identify partnerships within the humanitarian sector (or at the nexus) to support working animal welfare in natural disasters. Leveraging the One Health principles, help the charity to develop strategic partnerships with humanitarian actors to advance: a. risk and resilience proposal development and funding; and b. the capacity of country officers to develop emergency response plans and identify partners.
  • Provide technical advisement in support of high quality DRR mainstreaming and emergency programming, e.g. Provide expert advice on DRR and emergencies, and linkages to working animal welfare.

The successful candidate will have proven understanding of the nexus between disaster risk reduction and environmental degradation and community engagement and at least 5 years of project management experience in the fields of DRR and/or humanitarian response.

Knowledge of global, regional, and local DRR and humanitarian relief frameworks and strategies are key, as is experience of rapid needs assessments and undertaking country and programme risk and resilience assessments.
