What makes ActionAid different?

Working for ActionAid is different to working with other charities. For a start, we’ve been around since 1973, so we’re one of the longest established and best respected charities in the UK. Many of our frontline staff and partners around the world live in the communities in the 45 countries where we work across Africa, Asia and America.

Our approach is all about empowering people to claim their rights. And so our working relationships in the UK and across the world are based on mutual trust, respect and democracy. If you like the sound of that, we can’t wait to welcome you aboard.

Welcome to the (central London) neighbourhood

Our UK HQ is a spacious, open plan, wheelchair-accessible building in the heart of London’s Clerkenwell – a bustling but friendly, relaxed part of town with a great history. Surrounded by beautiful buildings, and seconds away from the lively Exmouth Market — full of interesting shops, stalls and restaurants - you’re spoilt for choice for lunch, with options to suit all budgets. 

We’re also lucky to be near many famous cultural hotspots, as well as some hidden gems (secret green spaces). Great transport (train, bus, tube) links will make your journey to and from work stress-free. Check out the local area!
