About the Organisation

ADD International is an ally to the global disability movement. We partner with disability activists in Africa and Asia. What we do:

Supporting activists. We partner with disability activists in Africa and Asia to help them build powerful movements for change. Disability activists tell us the change they want to make and what they need to make it happen. Together we develop a tailored package of long term support to help activists access the tools, skills and resources they need to make change happen.
Building movements. We support organisations of disability activists to build strong and sustainable organisations that can have an ever increasing impact. We then help these groups connect with each other to build wider movements and we work with them to promote the rights of disabled people.
Influencing for change. We work with organisations of disabled activists to influence governments, international development actors and the private sector to design policies and services at a local and global level which take into account the needs of disabled people.

Job Title

Head of Learning & Impact job at ADD International

Job Description

We are looking for someone who understands feminist and decolonial approaches to learning and knows how to develop flexible learning frameworks for participatory grant-making together with activists and movements.
We want someone motivated by the transformation that we are leading and keen to be a part of making it successful by helping us meet our commitment to continue to learn as we change.

Duties and Responsibilities

Design and deliver a new global learning framework

  • Design and develop a new Global Learning Framework for ADD that is appropriate for our new strategic framework

  • Lead the implementation of the new learning approach, engaging staff across the organisation, especially Regional Teams in Africa and Asia

  • Collaborate with disability justice activists, organisations and movements to ensure that they are playing a key role in driving our learning agenda

  • Working closely with our Co-CETOs and Senior Leadership Team, lead on documenting and sharing learning about our transformation journey to inform how we work internally and influence others externally


Sharing learning

  • In close collaboration with Regional Teams and the Head of Participatory Grant-making and Movement Support, take lead responsibility for ensuring that learning and impact informs the ongoing improvement and adaptation of our participatory grant-making model

  • Work closely with the Head of Communications to ensure that learning and evidence of the impact of our work is communicated to our supporters, funders and partners

  • Work closely with Head of Partnerships to make sure that our learning and impact is informing our influencing strategy and supporting fundraising efforts

  • Explore the use of technology to facilitate widespread sharing of learning across countries and regions

  • Organise learning workshops and convenings for staff, activists and partners as appropriate


Technical support to staff

  • Train and support staff to understand and implement our new approach to learning and impact

  • Provide MEL skills-building training for disability justice activists, organisations and movements as requested by them

  • Ensure that ADD learns from and responds to trends, debates and sector wide learning on MEL for participatory grantmaking

  • Connect staff to others in the sector who are leading innovative approaches to learning

  • Support staff who are implementing traditional programmes to generate insights and learning from these to inform our new learning framework

  • Engage the Senior Leadership Team in the process of designing and implementing a new approach to learning across the organisation, ensuring their buy-in and understanding


Safeguarding Level

  • We are committed to ensure we are a safe organisation, delivering safe programmes that ensure we do no harm to people we work with. Our processes ensure all posts are graded, based on interaction with children and vulnerable adults. This post is a Level 1 post, see outline of all levels below:

  • Level 1 - office based, no real direct access to children/vulnerable adults.

  • Level 2 - a travelling role, possible access to children/vulnerable adults but unlikely to be alone.

  • Level 3 - regular access to children/vulnerable adults including on their own, or lead responsibility for safeguarding within office/location.

  • In addition to the responsibilities listed above, this role like all at ADD, will also have specific responsibilities relating to safeguarding:

  • Ensure familiarity, and compliance with, ADD’s child and vulnerable adult safeguarding policy and undertake training as required. In particular:

  • Contribute to creating and maintaining an environment (including within ADD) that prevents safeguarding violations and promotes the implementation of ADD’s policy;

  • Report any concerns or suspicions regarding safeguarding violations by an ADD staff member or associated personnel to the appropriate staff member.

  • Take responsibility for ensuring our transition to a participatory grant maker is done in a way that does no harm and is respectful to the people and organisations with whom we work.
