Senior Advisor, Global Team, Inclusion Advisory Group Call for expressions of interest from Consultants interested in working alongside our teams.
*We welcome applications from those who have the right to work and live in UK, Ireland, Netherlands, Belgium or Germany, Nigeria, Kenya, Burkina Faso and Madagascar.
The Inclusion Advisory Group (IAG) is an initiative of CBM Global Disability Inclusion. The Senior Advisor and consultants identified to work alongside our teams will be employed/contracted by the most relevant part of CBM Global.
What we do
IAG is a team of international development professionals, working alongside the disability movement to ensure that development and humanitarian programs include people with disabilities. Our goal is to influence the programs of other agencies to be more inclusive of people with disabilities. Find out more about our work and our approach our IAG website.
We partner with the disability movement to influence organisations, institutions and systems to realise the rights of persons with disabilities. We believe that tailored input, communicated effectively, with the right people at the table can help make inclusion a reality.
Our work is fast-paced, diverse and growing. As a member of our global team, you could be involved in working with global advisory clients, working alongside local advisory teams to support their work, or helping build the networks, capacity and systems that enable our work. You could be for example, developing partnerships, doing data analysis, writing reports, inputting into policies and programs from global to community level, or working with organisations on their strategies and plans around disability inclusion (sometimes, all in the same week!).
As a consultant, you could be asked to join in any part of the above work, often on specific advisory contracts.
