Amos Trust is looking for a Partnership and Climate Fellowship Manager
We are seeking to appoint a 12-month maternity cover post to start in January 2024 to manage Amos Trust’s partnerships and our Climate Fellowship. The person appointed will report directly to the Director.
Job Title: Partnership and Climate Fellowship Manager
Reporting to: Director
Contract type: Maternity cover (12 months)
Salary: £34,000 per annum
Hours: 35 hours per week
Updated: October 2023
Amos Trust is a small, creative human rights organisation that seeks to challenge injustice, build hope and create change by working with vibrant grassroots projects developing local responses to global issues.
We currently have three areas of work:
Our Climate Justice programme is divided between:
On Her Terms is the name of the 5-year Street Justice campaign we have been running with our four partners in Durban in South Africa, Chennai in India, Mwanza in Tanzania and Bujumbura in Burundi.
We have also been working with a broader network to identify and develop ways of working with girls and young women whose lives revolve around the streets. We are currently writing up the findings from this and are starting to disseminate the learning.
Our Palestine Justice work focuses on three areas — celebrating culture, building facts on the ground and promoting rights. It is the largest of our areas of work. In addition to working with four partner organisations on the West Bank and four in Gaza, we undertake extensive advocacy and awareness-raising work, including taking groups to experience Palestine for themselves.
Partnerships are at the core of Amos’ work
We do not enter into partnerships lightly; out of our 13 partnerships, we have several long-standing partners. We form alliances with inspirational grassroots organisations who are developing local responses to the injustices Amos has prioritised and whose work will help shape our response.
We seek to present their vision, work and challenges to our supporters and stakeholders to provide a platform and secure funds. We always aim to support our partners to rely less on our funding.
Core Tasks & Responsibilities:
The Amos Climate Fellowship is for young female climate activists from the global south.
Following a successful pilot programme, cohorts of climate activists will be recruited and supported for up to a 1-year basis with small grants and training sessions on how to develop the local responses they have identified to the impact of climate change.
Once the geographical area that the second cohort is to be recruited from has been identified:
