ActionAid is a global federation working for a world free from poverty and injustice.
We want to see a just, fair and sustainable world, in which everybody enjoys the right to a life of dignity, and freedom from poverty and oppression.
So we work to achieve social justice and gender equality, and to eradicate poverty.
Our strategy is to build international momentum for social, economic and environmental justice, driven by people living in poverty and exclusion.
In practice, this means working closely with people living in poverty and exclusion, civil society organisations, social movements and supporters. Together, we deliver grassroots programmes, provide emergency relief and campaign for things such as women’s economic rights, tax justice and climate justice.
Our work falls into four broad areas: women, politics and economics, land and climate, and emergencies. We have a particular focus on women’s rights; it’s a thread that runs through all our work.
About the role
ActionAid is looking for a Country Director to provide vision, leadership, management and effective high-level national representation for ActionAid International in Occupied Palestinian Territories (AAP), in line with the established policies, principles and operating practices of ActionAid International, as well as good management practice and the political, social, cultural and economic environment of the country.
Reporting to the Head of Country Engagement and Transformation, Asia, the CD is responsible for overseeing the implementation of the ActionAid Palestine (AAP) strategic plan for the period of 2023-2027, ensuring resources are in place to achieve budgeted performance targets and monitoring overall performance against these targets.
