AmplifyChange is looking for an inspirational leader to take us forward in this new exciting phase of grant-making to achieve sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR).

AmplifyChange is now an independent, not-for-profit organisation that supports local civil society organisations to advocate for sexual and reproductive health and rights.  Our vision is the full attainment of SRHR for all.  AmplifyChange puts grassroots organisations at the centre of all we do. To date we have built a critical mass of organisations (1000+ in 64 countries). While AmplifyChange operates as a ‘challenge’ fund to make grants available competitively to all, our ethos is to support applicants and grantees to succeed, and to facilitate access to longer-term and more predictable funding to well performing groups.

The Board of Directors of AmplifyChange is seeking to appoint a Chief Executive Officer (CEO) to lead our evolution and growth as an independent platform for supporting SRHR advocacy. This is a tremendously exciting opportunity for someone wishing to make a real difference to the lives and choices that people are able to enjoy in some of the settings that are most challenging for SRHR.  The CEO will implement the new 2021-2025 Strategy.

We are looking for a leader who is focused, pragmatic and supportive of working with others. They want to serve the organisation and its grantees rather than shine, and are passionate and knowledgeable about SRHR issues in the Global South. They have a keen eye on delivering results and active fund-raising, and are confident in dealing with Boards, donors and other key stakeholders. 

To apply, please submit a CV and covering letter, detailing how you fulfil the role description and personal specification to: quoting reference 5038. The deadline for applications is 12 noon GMT on Monday 10th May.

The Board wants to recruit the best person for the job, but also recognises the importance of having a leader who represents the main constituents that AmplifyChange supports. Requests for flexible working arrangements will be considered.

The salary will be commensurate based on the candidate.
