We’re on a mission to help women and girls living in the world’s poorest places change their lives for good. To do that, we need the best, most talented, committed people. Looking for a fulfilling new job? Then come and join us.
What to expect when you work for ActionAid
As part of our current strategy we are focusing on a number of key elements. This means that all our staff need to show a commitment to our focus on working with women and girls living in poverty, and embrace a digital-first way of working.
As part of our commitment to safeguarding, we will complete a basic disclosure check on all new hires. We encourage applications from under-represented groups, in particular those with a right to work in the UK who come from the Global South. We offer a variety of different flexible working options, and therefore welcome applications from individuals who would like to explore flexible working.

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.
