Are you passionate about Disaster Risk Reduction?
At Practical Action Consulting (PAC), the not-for-profit research and technical advisory wing of the INGO Practical Action, we have an exciting opportunity to work with us on Disaster Risk Reduction.
PAC supports governments (national and sub-national), donors and practitioners in disaster risk reduction, disaster preparedness, early warning systems, hazard mitigation and disaster risk management. PAC works to bring Practical Action’s experience and best practices to scale through our consultancy services, whilst collaborating with cutting edge research to bring external best practices back to Practical Action.
In this role you will use your knowledge of disaster risk reduction to support cutting edge research (eg into landslide early warning systems in South Asia) or to support learning and development of guidance for practitioners and donors (eg on climate information services in Africa). You will build relationships with clients, partners and associates and work closely with the Lead Consultant for Disaster Risk Reduction in developing PAC’s DRR strategy, working collaboratively with colleagues and partners internationally, focusing on research, innovation and impact at scale.
We are looking for an energetic and committed individual, with experience of disaster risk reduction in the context of international development and a track-record of research, project management or consultancy work. You will be joining a growing team, with a strong project portfolio, in an organisation with a positive and engaging culture, where there is a real focus on training and career development.
Practical Action positively welcomes applicants from all sections of the community.
