Job Summary

Save the Children is evolving its organisational structure in order to stay true to its mission, vision and values, whilst being able to withstand external pressures – be those geo-political demands; increasing stakeholder expectations; challenging funding environments; reduced access to funding due to localisation; or declining trust in large INGOs. This project is focused on designing and implementing a future-oriented and more flexible operating model whilst maintaining the integrity, cohesion and reputation of the Save the Children movement.
The Design Lead role sits within the Project and Change Management team that is part of the Transformation Delivery Department within Save the Children International.

This role will also be responsible for managing, consolidating, and incorporating design-related input from relevant stakeholders, including from other Flex Operating Model Work Stream Leads.
