The Programme Officer role is an exciting position for someone eager to use their project coordination and relationship building skills, has a passion for international development, and a desire to grow GlobalGiving’s impact in accelerating community-led change. This role requires someone who thinks creatively, seizes opportunities, adapts by listening to citizen and sector feedback, and has the confidence to be an external champion for our work.
You will be part of a small but mighty team based in London, with colleagues based in the United States, India, and China. We care about using our time, talents, and energy to change the development system by putting people first. We use technology to connect resources and people globally and nurture social connections formed both online and in person.
GlobalGiving exists to transform aid and philanthropy to accelerate community-led change. We are driven by our values: to never settle, remain always open, commit to wow our clients, and listen, act, learn so we innovate and strive for the best.
The Programme Officer will work with the Programme & Partnerships Manager to deliver a varied portfolio of projects, including coordinating an international volunteer programme, supporting country representatives as they deliver in-country programmes effectively, supporting project management and reporting, and working with our team to design new projects and seek funding. The Programme Officer will need to be open to working flexibly across a small team, able to manage competing priorities, and happy to step in to support colleagues when opportunities arise.
