Do you want to join the largest global effort to address acute malnutrition?

We are looking for a new Communications and Uptake Advisor.


Acute malnutrition affects an estimated 49.5 million children around the world, and puts children at an increased risk of death and long-term failure to thrive. Recognising the scale of the challenge and the opportunity for change, a coalition of UNICEF, DFID, ECHO, CIFF and Action Against Hunger joined forces in 2016 to launch the No Wasted Lives Coalition. The aim of this initiative is to accelerate collective global action towards the global targets set by the Sustainable Development Goals and the World Health Assembly and to realise a world where no child suffers or dies from wasting. The Coalition is supported by a global Secretariat Team who drive the day-to-day activities of the initiative. A portion of this team are hosted at Action Against Hunger UK with additional team members in the US.

Sitting within the Operations Department at Action Against Hunger UK, Communications & Uptake Advisor will work closely with the Head of Evidence based in the UK, Director of International Nutrition Initiatives based in the US, and Regional Advisors in West Africa, East Africa, and South Asia to drive effective uptake and use of emerging evidence on the prevention and treatment of acute malnutrition.

We are always looking to recruit passionate and dedicated individuals who are keen to join our team and contribute to the fight against child hunger. For more detailed information on the role, please download the attached PDF Job description.

The post will be based in Action Against Hunger-UK’s London office. Only candidates with the right to work in the UK may apply.

Closing date for applications: 5pm, on Friday, 24th May 2019.
