Senior Philanthropy Manager


We are seeking a highly motivated and experienced Senior Manager of Philanthropy to lead our fundraising initiatives and play a pivotal role in achieving our organization’s financial goals.

As a senior member of our team, you will be responsible for developing and executing comprehensive fundraising strategies, cultivating donor relationships, and ensuring the sustainability of our programs and projects.


In this role, you will be part of the RI Humanitarian Access & Response team, and coordinate closely with the Regional Security and Access Directors, with the aim of building RI’s security management and humanitarian response capacity.

You will lead RI’s efforts in building a culture of safety and security, that embeds risk management and security planning, as a key element of all the work we do across the organization.


RI has recently entered into a partnership with Takeda Pharmaceuticals to implement a 4 year project medical supply chain project. This project will focus on building the capacity of 20 local pharmaceutical and medical device suppliers in four countries where Relief International (RI) has existing programming: Afghanistan, Yemen, Myanmar, and Syria.

The Project Director will lead and supervise all activities under the project and have overall responsibility for successful RI and partner project deliverables. The Project Director will provide strategic leadership and bear responsibility on all partner performance as well as project administrative requirements of the program ensuring that the program’s objectives are met.


Members and Directors, MRCA-RI France


Relief International is an alliance of European, UK and US not-for-profit organizations with a shared mission to partner with communities impacted by conflict, climate change and disaster to save lives, build greater resilience, and promote long-term health and well-being.  Relief International is comprised of MRCA/Relief InternationalFrance (a French not-for-profit association loi 1901), Relief International-Europe (a Belgian international non-profit association), Relief International-UK (a registered charity in England & Wales), and Relief International, Inc. (a US 501(c)(3) tax exempt non-profit corporation).

The governing bodies (referred to herein as “boards”) of the Relief International alliance provide guidance, oversight and direction to our strategy and leadership initiatives. They act as leaders, advisors and key decision makers, who help shape our mission, values, and strategies to meet the complex needs of the communities we serve. Members and Directors actively participate in and drive the development of strategies, setting measurable goals that are technically and financially sound.

It is expected that new boards members will be appointed as: (a) members of MRCA/Relief International-France, (b) members of Relief International-Europe, (c) trustees of Relief International-UK and (d) directors of Relief International, Inc.

As Relief International sharpens its strategy, builds important new sources of unrestricted funds to buttress our work, and continues to grow its support from government, institutional and corporate donors in Europe and other countries outside of the US, we believe this is the right time to increase the geographic diversity of our governance and identify new members and directors from Europe and other presently underrepresented countries and regions.

This is an exciting time to join Relief International. The boards have recently appointed a new CEO and are actively engaged in an organization-wide strategic enhancement process that breathes new life, fresh thinking, and original ideas into how they achieve their mission. New boards members will play an important role in translating this newly sharpened strategy into action for excellence in fragile settings globally. New boards members will be joining a team of purpose- and values-driven leaders with unique and inspiring connections to RI’s mission, both personally and professionally.


Climate change is dramatically impacting our world. Changing weather patterns, increasing heat are affecting food production, negatively affecting health and impacting our water systems both in terms of quantity and quality. Relief International partners with communities impacted by conflict, climate change, and disaster to save lives, build greater resilience, and promote long-term health and wellbeing. Vulnerable populations with whom RI partners, often lack the resources to prepare for, mitigate, and adapt to climate change; they often bear the brunt of its fallout. Worst impacted are RI communities experiencing armed conflict and the ensuing governance breakdown.

In this context, RI is building its core capacity in climate smart programming. Developing local capacity to prepare for and respond to shocks, with climate smart solutions.


WASH Consultant


Relief International is seeking experienced candidates specializing in Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) programming in international humanitarian and development settings to provide technical assistance towards the development and implementation of RI WASH programming.

The consultant will collaborate with RI’s Program Development and Regional and Country teams to provide technical design input towards program design and to review draft and final proposals.

Experience with donor interests and priorities around WASH and humanitarian responses in protracted contexts and durable solutions strongly preferred. Especially USAID/BHA, DOS/PRM, EU/DG-ECHO, and the UN.


Theory of Change Consultant


RI is seeking an experienced and skillful thought partner and facilitator to help design and facilitate the RI Theory of Change pilot process resulting in the development of Theories of Change for 4 RI Country Offices (COs), RI’s global Theory of Change, and facilitation guides and tools for use by RI’s second cohort of countries.


Senior Communications Officer


A storyteller, and a skilled marketer, the Senior Communications Officer will be excellent at spotting communications opportunities, whilst playing an integral role in planning, developing, creating, and evaluating communications content, that drives private sector donations, and raises awareness of RI and our partner communities.

The successful candidate will be excited to get stuck in with the implementation of impactful communications products, as well as contributing to, and leading on, RI’s communication campaigns and projects.

The Senior Communications Officer will work closely with consultants, external agencies, and RI’s support office locations around the globe.

Some international travel to RI’s countries of operation to gather content will be required (less than 10% of total time).
