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.

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