Programme Manager, Peacebuilding Issues Programme
Salary: £48,023 per annum (more for an exceptional candidate), plus excellent benefits
We are recruiting an inspirational leader for our Peacebuilding Issues Programme, which provides ideas leadership and practical support on peacebuilding issues and methods inside and outside Alert. It specialises in training, research and advocacy, and on specific issues such as gender, climate change, governance, the economic aspects of peace, and on how international businesses and multinational organisations can better contribute to peace.
You will be responsible for setting vision and strategy, developing new ideas, and helping staff develop and evolve their ideas and approaches. You will be actively involved in outreach and advocacy, and will raise funds for projects and for the delivery of training, research and other products and services. You will manage teams and the budget. To be great in this job you are likely, first and foremost, to have a talent for entrepreneurial leadership which allows you to create, identify and seize strategic opportunities, inspire others whose involvement or support is needed, and get involved yourself in taking them forward.
Educated to degree level (in a relevant subject), you will have at least 5 years’ experience of peacebuilding work (or of a similar nature) and in project/programme management (including people management and the management of donor funds) and you will have been based in conflict-affected contexts.

International Alert is a 26-year old independent peacebuilding organisation. We work with people who are directly affected by violent conflict to improve their prospects of peace, and we seek to influence the policies and ways of working of governments, international organisations like the UN and multinational companies, to reduce conflict risk and increase the prospects of peace.
We work in Africa, several parts of Asia, the South Caucasus, the Middle East and Latin America and have recently started work in the UK. Our policy work focuses on several key themes that influence prospects for peace – the economy, climate change, gender, the role of international institutions, the impact of development aid, and the effect of good and bad governance.
We are one of the world’s leading peacebuilding NGOs with more than 200 staff and 14 field offices. To learn more about how and where we work, visit www.international-alert.org.
