Job Title: International Development Finance Project Manager

Working For: Bretton Woods Project, hosted by ActionAid

Location: London

Salary: £39,353 – £40,544 per annum (starting salary) plus contributory pension

Job Details

The purpose of this role will be to manage the Project’s advocacy work on issues relating to international development finance, targeting the IMF in particular, and monitor Bank and Fund policies and programmes across a variety of areas.

The Bretton Woods Project acts as a watchdog by monitoring the Bank and Fund, with a particular focus on the impact of Bank and Fund policies and activities on the environment, human rights and democratic governance. The Project develops and maintains an information and evidence base that contributes to critical voices that seek to influence international financial institutions so that they support development policies that are gender transformative, equitable, environmentally sustainable and consistent with international human rights norms.

The role
Currently work focuses on challenging the Fund’s assertion that it has abandoned the use of conditionality and critically analysing the evolution of the Fund’s rhetoric and policies across several areas, including inequality, social protection, gender and domestic resource mobilisation. The role involves strategic planning; developing in-depth knowledge of and an evidence base on relevant policy issues; monitoring, analysis and writing on relevant IMF and World Bank policies and programmes. It also involves conducting advocacy, including at the highest levels of government and international institutions; writing accessible articles/briefings; supporting network strengthening; and monitoring international institutions and the role of UK institutions in the IMF.

It will also include providing technical support to the Project’s Gender Equality and Macroeconomics (GEM) project. More broadly it entails contributing to the Bretton Woods Project publications. The role involves significant contributions to the Project’s operations, including support to fund-raising and outreach, financial and human resource management and input into strategic decisions for the Project. The Project Manager may be required to line manage junior staff and to supervise consultants and volunteers.
