What type of pay and benefits does Action For Humanity offer?
As a charity, we don’t have as much budget as the corporate or private sectors would have for salaries, as we aim to spend as much money on the cause, to benefit the people we serve. Our salaries are in line with other medium-sized NGOs, which is typically less than the corporate sector but still reasonable, and there are opportunities for advancement and progression to achieve a higher salary for more senior roles. All job roles include the salary bracket in the advert, for transparency, and we cannot usually offer someone higher than what was advertised.
Does Action For Humanity accept speculative CVs or applications?
Currently, we only recruit for roles which are advertised, as we have to ensure we have the budget. Therefore, unfortunately, we cannot accept speculative CVs during this time.
