The Opportunity

Save the Children International has an exciting opportunity for you to join our team as theGlobal Funding Framework Specialistin the UK (London or Remote) or any existing Save the Children International Regional or Country office worldwide. 


As part of the development of Save the Children’s 2022-24 Global Strategy, RMCE has delivered an ambitious project (the Global Funding Framework) to identify how we can resource our strategy. 2024 is a critical year that marks the close of this first iteration of the Global Funding Framework as well as a foundational year to prepare for the next iteration in 2025-2027. In 2024 RMCE will bring the organisation together to outline where we need to shift, focus and align together to resource our Global Strategy and drive the greatest possible impact for children. The Global Funding Framework in 2025-2027 aims to build and embed a sense of collective accountability and action towards shared goals, levers of change, and measures of success: a ‘whole movement effort’ leveraging our areas of strengths, value add and expertise.

The Global Funding Framework Specialist role is part of the Save the Children International (SCI) Centre office’s Programme Funding and Institutional Partnerships (PFIP) team, which works across the global Save the Children Movement to optimise and align our programme funding portfolio in support of our ambition for children and to drive improvements to our ways of working with institutional partners.

Over the past three years, the PFIP team has worked to establish quality foundations and drive continuous improvement in data and analytics to more effectively track and monitor our global funding portfolio. The role of the Global Funding Framework Specialist will be to build on these foundations and ensure that the 2025 – 2027 Global Funding Framework is driven by foresight analytics and evidence-based decision making.

The role will provide additional support to the PFIP team to ensure clear articulation of the movement’s anticipated programme funding needs, drivers and goals across the coming strategy period and how these dock into Save the Children’s global strategy. This will include helping with regular and effective tracking and articulating/ visualization to senior internal audiences as the development of the Global Funding Framework progresses. The work will focus on driving a culture of collective insight-driven decision-making and actions both strategically and operationally, working closely with key stakeholders.

In the event of a major humanitarian emergency, the role holder will be expected to work outside the normal role profile and be able to vary working hours accordingly.
