Director of Programmes

Brooke is an international animal welfare charity with a difference. Brooke’s mission is to relieve the suffering of working equine animals and from our beginnings in Egypt more than 80years ago we have developed into a truly global entity with branches and affiliates in three continents and strategic partnerships to extend our reach and impact. From the delivery of work in specialised small clinics, Brooke’s approach has developed and our focus has widened and deepened through the combination of community development, improved veterinary practices and effective advocacy.  Our aim is that when Brooke is no longer present, working equine animals will continue to benefit from the inputs we have made.

This exciting role sits at the core of Brooke’s mission to eradicate the suffering of working equines. In line with our new Theory of Change, the Programmes Director is responsible for leading an international team that designs and delivers high quality programmes that make a lasting change.

The organisation is entering an exciting new phase focused on strengthening linkages with human development priorities to ensure greater sustainable impact for both animals and people using a one-welfare approach.  Effective community development work with a focus on gender equality and the empowerment of communities, the development of the competencies of service providers supporting systemic change in animal health care and focussed external affairs work supported by evidence from our work are combined within our programme work taking place in Africa, Central America and Asia.

This leadership role will act as a facilitator and champion of best practice across the organisation, managing a portfolio of around £12m with teams in UK and overseas and be specifically accountable for the delivery of our charitable objectives improving the welfare of vulnerable working equines.

This is a role for a seasoned development professional with an understanding of the interdependency of animals and humans in low income contexts and demonstrable experience leading diverse and high performing teams across international settings to deliver results.

To apply, please email our Head of HR Julia.porter@thebrooke.org with an up-to-date CV and one page covering letter demonstrating your motivation for this role. Closing date Sunday 3 June 2018

Informal interview 13 and 14 June 2018
