The CHS Alliance is a global alliance of humanitarian and development organisations committed to making aid work better for people. We believe organisations deliver higher quality, more effective aid when they are accountable to the people they serve.
Together, we are a movement to strengthen accountability and to put people affected by crisis at the heart of what we do by implementing the Core Humanitarian Standard (CHS).
The CHS Alliance supports organisations meet the Commitments they have made to people affected by crisis in the Core Humanitarian Standard. It is important therefore that the CHS is embodied in the way the CHS Alliance manages its own operations.
This new role, created to support us in moving to the next stage of our development, will play a critical role in helping us achieve the ambitious goals of our new strategy, striving to embody the CHS in all our work, helping integrate our values with the money and resources across strategic and operational discussions. Its purpose is to help produce a support framework so everyone can make timely and informed decisions, navigating opportunities, challenges and changing circumstances.
It offers a rewarding opportunity for someone passionate about organisational culture and accountability. It offers someone the possibility to both support a dynamic organisation and contribute to broader organisational development and learning aligned to the CHS.
The COO will be part of the Senior Management Team, and a thinking partner alongside the Executive Director. They will contribute to the overall strategic vision of the organisation, managing a dedicated support team, and working closely with two great governance committees, to guide the internal operations of the organisation, in line with the considerations in the CHS.
The person taking on this role will be a systems thinker, someone who enjoys connecting with others, and who approaches work with creativity, flexibility and a spirit of innovation and ambition
