More than one billion people with disabilities, 15% of the world’s population, make up one of the most disadvantaged and marginalised groups within society. They are routinely denied their most basic human rights – cut off from education, employment and healthcare. Many live in extreme poverty.
At Leonard Cheshire Disability (LCD), we work to change that. With over 65 years’ experience and a deeply rooted network of over 200 Leonard Cheshire Global Alliance members in 54 countries, we have a powerful understanding of disability.

We are looking to recruit an internationally experienced Head of Influencing, Impact and Learning. This is a senior role within the International Directorate. The successful candidate will take the lead in developing the strategy for global influencing and learning to significantly raise the profile of LCD as an effective advocate for the inclusion of disability rights in mainstream development. You will lead LCD’s engagement with international policy debates whilst strengthening networking and collaboration with sector stakeholders to encourage the development of pro-poor policies. To be successful you will have extensive international experience in a similar leadership role.
