We are looking for someone to join a small CALP team in the Philippines to take forward CALP’s work in Asia and the Pacific – this is an exciting new role with huge potential. You’ll use your knowledge and experience of CVA and your influencing skills to provide technical support, to engage and convene people – supporting action that takes forward collective priorities. Your role will be regionally focused, and globally connected, working with a diverse range of people and organisations. The role includes work related to training, capacity development, evidence generation and learning, working to strengthen CVA policy and practice in the region. You’ll also have grant management responsibilities, with report writing and grant administration as part of the role.

The role requires highly collaborative ways of working – both within the CALP network and the CALP team. It requires being able to engage actors remotely, with only very limited travel.
You’ll be joining a strong and motivated CALP team which, while globally dispersed, is very connected and collaborates through daily engagement. The role is hosted by Action Against Hunger and based in their office in Manila.
