Amos Trust is looking for a Partnership and Climate Fellowship Manager

Job Description

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)

  • Location: Flexible

  • 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.

Current activities

We currently have three areas of work:

  • Climate Justice
    Supporting women-led initiatives to equip local communities to develop sustainable responses to climate change’s impact.

  • Street Justice
    Transforming the lives of girls and young women on the streets, so they can live free from abuse.

  • Palestine Justice
    Campaigning for equal rights for Palestinians and ending Israel’s apartheid policies.

Our Climate Justice programme is divided between:

  • Support for CEPAD — a sustainable community development organisation in Nicaragua, one of the countries most affected by climate change, whose methodology has shaped all areas of our work. 

  • The Climate Fellowship 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 to develop the local responses they have identified to the impact of climate change. 

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:

  • act as a central point of contact for our 13 partners, emphasising our Street Justice and Climate Justice partners, 
  • maintain open channels of communication and strong working relationships with each partner, listening to them, understanding the issues they face, how they seek to address these and capturing stories from their work and the voices at the centre of it,
  • ensure that our partners know what they can expect from Amos Trust and what we expect from them,
  • ensure that Amos is responsive to issues that arise with our partners, 
  • ensure that Amos’ goals do not override our partners’ goals and that we recognise that they face multiple personal and organisational priorities,
  • work with Amos fundraisers and communications team to secure our partners’ funds and disseminate their learning.


  • ensure partnership agreements are in place and are updated on an annual/bi-annual basis,
  • ensure that each partner agrees with goals and outcome budgets for the funding Amos Trust will provide,
  • ensure that due diligence checks are routinely carried out on our partners and that Amos Trust has enough information to enable this, 
  • ensure that our partners have appropriate child protection/safeguarding policies,
  • ensure monitoring and evaluation and agreed annual, six-monthly and quarterly reports are returned and follow up on late submissions,
  • ensure that end-use of funds forms have been completed with all our partners, 
  • Ensure that Amos receives our partner’s annual financial statement.

Climate Fellowship 

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: 

  • identify the specific goals and outcomes for this cohort,
  • confirm the budget for the second cohort,
  • recruit the new cohort and establish them as a learning group,
  • develop and deliver the training and support plan for the cohort, ensuring that the core learning from the pilot project is at the centre of this approach,
  • identify the outcomes and budget for the individual projects the cohort wishes to develop,
  • support them as they develop these projects and as they use the grant provided by Amos Trust,
  • work with the Head of Communications to ensure Amos disseminates information from the Fellowship most effectively,
  • monitor the effectiveness of the project and support the young women to identify how these can be sustainable,
  • evaluate and identify learning from the annual programme.


  • work with the fundraising team to ensure they have the information they need and that applications reflect the outcomes pursued with our partners,
  • work with the Head of Communications to gather and communicate powerful stories from our partners and the Climate Fellowship,
  • represent Amos at events or in external networks when discussing our partnerships and gender justice work, 
  • carry out necessary preparatory work and undertake (or support another team member in undertaking) fact-finding and M&E visits to our partner projects or ascertain if Amos should be establishing new partnerships or areas of work.
