Health Poverty Action works for health and global justice in partnership with people who have been marginalised and pushed into poverty.

We work with communities to help them demand their right to health, and to challenge the power imbalances that deny them their health rights. Our distinct approach can be summarised as a combination of three areas:


Context of the role

This is a unique role, which might provide a good entry point to the global justice/development sector for someone of outstanding ability who would like to work in it over the longer term.

While the duties are primarily of an administrative nature (though nonetheless challenging, varied and interesting), the centrality and senior contacts of the role serves as an excellent introduction to the work of a significant global justice organisation – with possibilities of the post holder gradually learning about and opening up future possibilities in areas of personal interest, whether that be policy/campaigns, fundraising, programmes, or administrative/finance functions.

It is also a key role in which the right person can make a profoundly valuable contribution to the life and work of Health Poverty Action immediately. Having these key functions performed well, by someone who shares our passion for global justice, makes such a difference and benefits all aspects of our work in the UK and around the world.


At Health Poverty Action we celebrate diversity and promote equality and inclusion amongst all of our staff and everyone we work with.

 Health Poverty Action recognises that all adults and children have equal rights to protection from abuse and exploitation. Health Poverty Action condemns exploitation and inappropriate behaviour, and is committed to taking action for the protection of programme participants.  In cases where positions include a high level of safeguarding risk, police checks or local equivalents will be carried out.
