In order to achieve our global breakthroughs for children by 2030, the Save the Children movement has committed to significantly changing the way we work – a core component of which is to shift power to local and national actors. Our Localisation ambition – ‘Local to Global for Impact’ - is an ambitious, multi-year, transformational journey that will see us – and the wider sector - deliver more, better, and fairer impact through context-responsive, locally-designed, locally-led and locally–owned programs for children. We will achieve this by addressing fundamental challenges in the way current aid is delivered to enable and facilitate local actors’ own access to global resources for maximum impact – and we will overcome blockers within our own organization that currently prevents this from happening.

  • Ability to work independently and judge when to ask for advice or inputs
  • Excellent communication skills (written & oral English), including the ability to communicate and present both at a technical and non-technical level
  • Strong interpersonal skills, including the ability to negotiate/mediate; to facilitate the resolution of conflicting data/ financial analysis
  • Proven experience of working effectively with senior management and presenting analysis in a compelling manner to senior leadership
  • Advanced analytical and problem solving skills
  • Ability to support the creation of compelling business cases/ projects with accurate cost and effort estimations
