Humanitarian Programme Coordinator-Health and Nutrition 
  • Salary negotiable depending on skills and experience
  • Permanent post
  • This post can be based in one of five possible locations: UK (London), USA (Washington DC), Kenya (Nairobi), Jordan (Amman) or Nepal (Kathmandu). 
Older people are some of the most vulnerable people in conflicts and disaster contexts. As population ageing transforms developing as well as developed countries, more and more older people are affected by humanitarian crises.  Yet too often, humanitarian responses fail to provide them with the assistance and protection they need and to which they are entitled.

This is an exciting opportunity to join HelpAge International – the only international humanitarian and development organisation dedicated to older people – to ensure that older people receive healthcare and nutrition support.  By providing strategic direction, leadership and coordination to HelpAge’s programmes and policy work, you will help to make the international humanitarian system more inclusive of older people and more principled and impartial in its response to the most vulnerable.

The ideal candidate will have a higher degree or post qualification in health and /or nutrition and knowledge of vulnerabilities and determinants of health with a focus on older people.  You will also have substantial experience of developing and implementing health and nutrition programmes in conflict and disaster settings and of providing technical advice and support to teams, including needs assessments, programme design and monitoring and advocacy.  You will be able and willing to travel 100 days a year, sometimes at short notice.

In your covering letter, please state which of these locations you would be based in and confirm that you already have the right to work in that country.

Closing date: Wednesday, 9 December 2015
Start date: ASAP
