We create safe spaces for girls, sharing facts, and answering questions about health, nutrition, education, relationships and so much more. And we use innovative technology so we can reach girls at scale. We arm girls with the skills to negotiate and redefine what they are told is possible, so every girl can choose to be in control of her body, her health, her learning and livelihood.

When a girl unlocks her power to make different choices that change her life, it inspires others to do so too. She starts a ripple effect that impacts her family, her community, her country. That’s the Girl Effect.

Background
Girl Effect is evolving to become an expert in digital media and the leading driver of demand for services, products and opportunities amongst adolescent girls in Africa and Asia. Through our portfolio of brands and digital products, we aspire to be at the cutting edge of Social and Behaviour Change Communication (SBCC), motivating and equipping girls and young women to adopt and maintain new behaviours that will improve their mental wellbeing, sexual and reproductive health and economic empowerment.

We are looking to hire a Gender Manager to join our global Programmes team. If you are someone who has a robust understanding of the needs of adolescent girls, grounds their thinking in best practice standards and applies this knowledge in creative and innovative ways, this could be the job for you.

In this role, you will support colleagues in India, Tanzania, Ethiopia and Rwanda to apply gender frameworks and approaches to their SBCC programmes. You will also work alongside the Global Gender Team to develop tools, policies and training to strengthen the capacity of Girl Effect staff and mainstream gender across the organisation.

Context of the role
Girl Effect’s Gender team integrates gender expertise into our social behavioural change programming and the way we work as an organisation, from the culture we embody to the policies we create.
We are looking to hire a Gender Manager to join our global Impact team. A multidisciplinary group of experts in gender, research, safeguarding, youth participation and social behaviour change communications.

In this role, you will be responsible for developing and delivering Girl Effect’s global tools, training and policies, applying your expertise and experience to global-level thinking. In addition, you will also support the design and implementation of our global programmes and provide technical support to gender focal points in Tanzania, India and Ethiopia, as required.

A key part of this role is supporting Girl Effect to remain up to date with the latest thinking and evidence in the field of gender. You will be responsible for supporting colleagues to mainstream this best practice thinking to promote positive changes in health, economic empowerment and/or education amongst adolescent girls and young women.
