The Role

This is an exciting opportunity to join the Brooke family in the role of Community Development Advisor at a time when the organization is evolving to focus on strengthening linkages with human development priorities to ensure greater sustainable impact for both animals and people. The Community Development Advisor post will act as a catalyst for change within the organisation: challenging, inspiring, guiding, and building the capacity of the organization to both strengthen the strategic linkages of our work to improve equine welfare with improving the livelihoods and well-being of equine owning communities, and affect human behaviour change to promote and sustain equine welfare improvements. Sustainable community development, strategic community engagement, and mainstreaming gender equality throughout our programme activities are critically important to our programmatic success, and comprise the core focus of work for this role.

We are looking for someone with extensive experience planning and implementing sustainable community development projects using participatory approaches within an international development context. You will need excellent facilitation and training skills, as well as strong analytical skills to be able to synthesize, use, and effectively promote understanding of complex information for learning and action across a diverse range of audiences and cultural contexts. You will possess excellent leadership skills, with the capacity to work effectively both independently and collaboratively, to inspire and motivate change. Excellent inter-personal skills, including listening and communication, tact, diplomacy, sensitivity and patience are essential qualities for fulfilling this position.
