Action on Disability and Development (ADD) is an international development agency working with organisations of disabled people in their struggle for the rightful inclusion of disabled adults and children in society. Established in 1985, ADD operates internationally with partner organisations of disabled people to create a world where all disabled people are enabled to enjoy their rights, fulfil their responsibilities and participate as fully as they can and choose at every level of society.

Chief Executive Circa: £70,000

Currently based in South West England. Extensive international travel.

ADD is committed to championing the human rights of disabled people. We are equally committed to recruiting a disabled person for this key role. Only disabled applicants should, therefore, apply.

This is an exciting and unique opportunity to make a real difference to the lives of disabled people. We want to appoint a disabled person to lead ADD into the next phase of its development. Responsible for circa 200 staff and working across 12 countries, you will lead ADD to help develop the capacity of disabled people and their organisations, and work with them to influence policies at local, regional and national level. You will cultivate key stakeholder relationships (particularly with the disability movement and donors), promote ADD in international
arenas, and develop income through existing and new funding streams.

You will need:
• A commitment to the social model of disability, with a deep understanding of the discrimination and human rights deprivation that many disabled people face
• Strategic leadership experience and management skills gained in disability rights/international development/non-profit/public sector arena
• Understanding and experience of capacity-building approaches to develop and implement programmes that improve disabled people’s quality of life
• Demonstrable financial acumen to oversee ADD’s financial strategy
• Strong communication and relational skills in cross-cultural contexts
