Join an international organisation dedicated to improving the lives of vulnerable children, families, and communities.

You'll bring technical expertise and exceptional collaboration skills to ensure that Save the Children (SCA) programs are of high quality and deliver impact. Your knowledge, experience, and energy will help position SCA as a leader in delivering tangible and measurable outcomes.
We're no ordinary not-for-profit. We're ambitious, creative, and outspoken. We stand up for children's rights. We want all children to be educated, healthy, and live free from violence.


A Gender, Disability and Social Inclusion (GEDSI) Technical Advisor (TA) supports SCA international programs to drive impact by guiding human and financial resources to improve the quality and results of SCA-supported initiatives. Working collaboratively with Member Office (MO), Regional Office (RO) and Country Office (CO) stakeholders, a GEDSI TA contributes to SCA implementing relevant, evidence-based initiatives with demonstrable impact through:

  • Ensuring MO GEDSI support services are context-specific and CO demand-driven.
  • Upskilling and reskilling COs to drive quality and outcome-oriented initiatives with a focus on gender equality, disability, and social inclusion.
  • Increasing use of innovative GEDSI approaches and technologies in SCA-supported initiatives.

You will make a difference by:

  • Providing demand-led support services to CO teams on GEDSI practices across diverse thematic areas and geographic locations.
  • Providing GEDSI technical expertise in the development of high-quality concept note and proposal designs e.g., theories of change, results frameworks, and rationale.
  • Engaging and contributing to global and regional GEDSI thought leadership working groups.
  • You'll be part of our International Programs team, working closely with program management, and technical colleagues and reporting to our Head of Program Quality and Impact.
  • This is a full-time permanent position based in any location in the Australia/Pacific time zone.


Your strong ethos to provide demand driven contextualised GEDSI support services is invaluable. We recognise your contribution and provide you the support to ensure you can bring your best, knowing here you have the space and opportunity to grow. Bringing your best every day, means having:

  • Experience as a change agent in GEDSI, disrupting common-held practices and promoting a data-driven culture.
  • Strong ability to translate complex GEDSI approaches and data into actionable insights and recommendations.
  • Proven experience developing and implementing GEDSI strategies that enhance system effectiveness and decision-making processes.
  • Experience in designing and conducting capacity-building initiatives in GEDSI and GEDSI data-driven decision-making.
  • Knowledge of applicable international GEDSI guidelines and standards in humanitarian and development contexts.


It's the feeling that your work contributes to making the world a better place for children and working with others who feel the same. In addition to a connection to social causes, you will have access to the following:

  • A friendly and flexible work environment, including WFH
  • Child and pet-friendly work environment
  • Full salary packaging benefits (please use this link to see how much this benefit could mean to you!)
