About us
2015 marks the confluence of two opportunities, the outcomes of which will shape the future of our planet for a generation: the Post-2015 summit in New York in September is meant to agree on a new sustainable development agenda for the world, and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change COP 21 in Paris in December is designed to forge international agreement on tackling climate change.
To make the most of the opportunities 2015 presents, participating organizations of the action/2015 campaign have agreed to come together to harness and amplify the creative energy, expertise, resources and power of the broadest spectrum of civil society and join forces to demand decisive and ambitious action to tackle the root causes of inequality, poverty and climate change and create a just future for all. The coalition is made up of over 1500 members, including Save the Children, in more than 120 countries with national coalitions around the world.  There is a growing South African coalition in place which is campaigning together for change.
About the role
The South Africa action/2015 Campaign Coalition Coordinator will help drive the strategic direction and delivery of the South African action/2015 coalition. This is a high-level position which will entail building a broad based national action/2015 coalition, establishing partnerships across a variety of sectors and in supporting the design and delivery of the coalition’s action/2015 campaign including activity at key global moments.
The post is being recruited by Save the Children on behalf of the South African action/2015 coalition but will report directly to the national coalition. We will consider applications from consultants as well as for a fixed term position until the end of December 2015.
About you
The South Africa action/2015 Campaign Coalition Coordinator will need to possess the following -
  •  Significant experience of working with and facilitating the development of coalitions, ideally in South Africa;
  • A strong understanding and experience of using public campaigning to create change;
  • Track-record of successful project management, including design of planning processes;
  • Strong national network of contacts across civil society and other key sectors.
  • Commitment to action/2015’s mission, values and approach.
 Save the Children UK is working with Save the Children South Africa to facilitate this recruitment.
