    Organization: War Child UK
    Country: United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
    Closing date: 02 Mar 2017

    Overview:
    War Child works with children who, as a result of conflict, live with a combination of poverty, exclusion and insecurity. These children might include street children, child headed households, children conscripted into armed groups, and children who have been put in prison. Our mission is to support and improve the care and protection of children and young people who live with a combination of insecurity, poverty and exclusion in some of the worse conflict-affected places. We look forward to a world in which the lives of children are no longer torn apart by war. This is a vision that can only be realised through the collective actions of children themselves, communities and their leaders, organisations like War Child, governments and key decision makers.

    Purpose of Post:
    We are recruiting for a second Regional Programme Officer (RPO) for the Africa team, who will work under the supervision of the Regional Programme Coordinator. The Africa regional desk will consist of two Regional Programme Officers. The role will involve close collaboration with the country teams in the Africa portfolio and other UK-based Regional Programme Officers. The post-holder will play a central role in the day to day project and operational support responsibilities to several countries allocated from the Africa portfolio. The regional portfolio currently includes Central African Republic, DRC and Uganda. Approximately 50% of the work will be assisting field teams with donor reporting, and project management. The RPO will provide critical support to Programme Managers ensuring all reports are clear, accurate, and submitted in a timely manner, and that learning is at the core of the projects we implement. Around 20% of the time will be spent on ensuring desk level support to proposal development for institutional donors (research background sections, drafting, certifications etc.). A further 20% of the work will be spent on ensuring effective internal communications between the Programmes team and the rest of War Child, with an emphasis on ensuring that fundraising teams get adequate information to support their needs, and that advocacy priorities are informed by programmes experience and evidence. Finally, 10% of the role will make sure of the effective administration of regional desk requirements (filing, shared drive management). The position will be UK based although there will be occasional opportunities to travel to the country programmes the RPO supports, to provide reporting and project implementation operational support; subject to security considerations.

    Organization: International Council of Voluntary Agencies

    Founded in 1962, ICVA (International Council of Voluntary Agencies) is a global network of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that work collectively and with other humanitarian stakeholders to promote and facilitate NGO engagement in the humanitarian sector and its policies.

    NGOs form a vital pillar in the international humanitarian community. However, despite implementing the majority of humanitarian work, NGOs often find themselves excluded from key decision-making structures and processes. Increased NGO contribution in these structures and processes could directly benefit affected populations, closing the gap between field realities and global policies.

    By strengthening NGO engagement in the development of the humanitarian sector, ICVA aims to positively shape the future of humanitarian assistance, promoting more collective, principled and effective action.

    Organization: War Child UK
    Country: United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
    Closing date: 27 Mar 2017

    Background:
    War Child is striving for a world where no child’s life is torn apart by war. Our mission is to
    protect, educate and stand up for the rights of children caught up in conflict. We aim to reach
    children as early as possible when conflict breaks out, and stay to support them through their
    recovery - helping to keep them safe, give them an education, and equip them with skills for
    the future.
    We understand children’s needs, respect their rights, and put them at the centre of the solution from supporting Syrian children to access education, to reintegrating child soldiers in the Central African Republic and promoting justice for young people in detention in Afghanistan.
    We also work with children and young people to change systems and practices that affect
    them – campaigning on the root causes of conflict and demanding that children are at the
    centre of humanitarian response.
    The Advocacy and Communications department plays a crucial role in this endeavour –
    making sure we are communicating with impact about the children and young people we work
    with, and calling on those in power to do the right thing to ensure children in conflict get the
    support they need. From running hard-hitting campaigns to get important issues on the political
    agenda, to developing media and digital strategies for our incredible music gigs, the Advocacy
    and Communications team is at the heart of our efforts to increase War Child’s profile and
    impact.
    Overview of the Role:
    The Director of Advocacy and Communications is responsible for leading a department that
    consists of three teams – Policy and Advocacy, Press and PR, and Digital. The department is
    responsible for three major objectives in delivering War Child’s strategy to 2019:
     To secure greater political and financial support, and influence policy change,
    for children affected by armed conflict at national and international levels
     To significantly raise War Child UK’s media profile and brand awareness in
    the UK and internationally to enhance our reputation, credibility and impact
     To considerably enhance War Child’s digital footprint to increase supporter
    mobilization across fundraising and campaigns
    War Child
    Job Description & Person Specification
    In achieving these objectives, the department will be driven by a number of cross-cutting priorities that the Director of Advocacy and Communications is ultimately accountable for:
     Building and measuring our profile – whether increasing the quantity and diversity of our media coverage, expanding our digital reach, securing the attention of decision-makers, or increasing the number of high-profile supporters for War Child, we will strive to constantly increase our profile, and develop indicators and metrics to measure how well we are doing.
     Understanding our supporters and audiences – so that we can better target our communications across both media and digital channels for both fundraising and political impact, we will invest in better understanding those who engage with War Child, the kind of content that drives engagement and the journeys people take to get to us. This will help us to optimise our brand and our external-facing content to improve our impact, and develop best practice for the rest of the organisation.
     Creating better and consistent content – as we grow and professionalise, the standard of our communications content will also need to constantly improve, following a clear set of guidelines to ensure quality and consistency, and creating the internal systems and architecture to gather, store and use content to maximum affect.
     Increasing our responsiveness – we will seek to improve the responsiveness of our advocacy and communications across everything we do – whether rapidly reacting to major political events through media or lobby; being quicker to respond to the news agenda; or spotting opportunities for digital engagement.
     Becoming a force to be reckoned with – in order to achieve our objective of securing policy change for children in conflict, we need to ensure our voice is heard and that we are bold and ground-breaking enough to become a force to be reckoned with in political debates globally and nationally. We will develop hard-hitting campaigns which secure strong media interest, being prepared to speak out when the situation demands it, whilst also enhancing our credibility in the policy arena with rigorous analysis and sophisticated lobby strategies.
     Promoting the voices and demands of children and young people – we will ensure that we are creating further opportunities for children and young people we work with to become their own advocates in their own contexts, as well as working with them as part of our global advocacy work. We will strive for this to be an objective across all our communications.
    The Advocacy and Communications Director is also a member of the Senior Management Team and so is responsible for wider organisational objectives, ensuring that we stay true to the five core principles that govern our strategy to 2020:
     We reach children early in the conflict cycle and we stay to support them through their recovery
     We are a specialist organisation focussed on high impact and sustainable interventions
     We champion the voices of children and mobilise others to take action in support of them
     Our values define our actions and drive us to continually improve our work and our systems
     We are part of an effective global family.
    This role is a maternity cover which will deliver to the agreed strategy to 2020 and the priorities identified for the Advocacy and Communications team.
    A) JOB SPECIFICATION: TASK AND RESPONSIBILITES:
    In line with War Child’s five-year strategy and following the core priorities for the Advocacy and Communications Department, the Director will deliver the following tasks and responsibilities:
    Policy, Advocacy and Campaigns
     Oversee the delivery of War Child’s two core campaigning priorities – stopping the targeting of children in war; and ensuring children who flee war are protected.
     Provide guidance and oversight for the development of advocacy strategies that deliver changes in policy and practice for children in war.
     Provide thought-leadership for War Child’s policy work, ensuring that our analysis is timely and adds value to current policy debates.
     Ensure that our advocacy and campaign objectives are supported with excellent communications across media and digital
     Promote collaboration across departments and teams to ensure our policy, advocacy and campaigns draw on our programmatic experience and complement our fundraising efforts.
     Represent War Child’s advocacy priorities at a national and global level – at events and meetings with decision-makers, and with our supporters.

    About us

    War Child (WC) is an International charity with national and international employees working in the UK, Afghanistan, Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of Congo, Iraq, Jordan, Yemen and Uganda.

    WC aims to attract and retain the best people to deliver high quality support to children. To enable us to do this, we need to adopt a more fit for purpose compensation and benefits policy, that allows us to competitively pay, provide incentives, and reward our people with targeted and valued benefits. WC is going through a transition of change, including the creation of a global shared platform, which requires more out of the box and global thinking when it comes to remunerating our people.

    Deliverables

    The objective is to draw up a Compensation and Benefits policy for WC, with the aim to integrate the organisation’s values and sufficient flexibility to adapt to the long-term growth vision.

    The policy should:

    • Be written in easy to understand language;
    • Encompass visual and descriptive elements;
    • Be brief and concise, excluding any references to process, procedure, best practice or guidelines (which may be drawn up separately).

    AND

    • Determine a new base salary structure;
    • Include a reference guide to determine job levels and where they fit within the new structure (this includes reviewing existing job functions and levels);
    • Review the existing benefits (of which most have only recently been established), and evaluate if they are fit for purpose:
    • Propose new or additional fit for purpose benefits;Review existing and propose new principles for progression.
    • Consider the extent to which salary progression should be linked to performance reviews
