Job Title: Events ands PR Advisor
Location: Purposeful, Studio 3A, Blue House Yard, 5 River Park Rd, London N22 7TB
Fixed term to 13 March 2020 (2 days per week until 31/1/2020, full time from 1/2/2020 to13/3/2020)

context of the role
The With and For Girls Collective is a group of 11 organisations united by a common belief that girls are agents of change. Comic Relief, EMpower, FRIDA, Mama Cash, Nike Foundation, NoVo Foundation, Plan International UK, Stars Foundation, The Global Fund for Children, The Global Fund for Women and Purposeful have come together to co-create a global awards initiative to find and fund locally-led girl-centred organisations working with and for girls.

Despite the critical role that women and girls play in sustainable development, the World Bank estimates that less than 2 cents of every $1 spent on international aid is directed towards adolescent girls, and it is estimated that only about 1% of all official aid, and an even smaller portion of humanitarian assistance, goes directly to the global south.

The Collective demonstrates that donors can fund in a meaningful way, allowing grassroots girl-led organisations to receive the flexible funding they so desperately need.

In March 2020, With and For Girls will be hosting an awards week to celebrate the 25 winners of its 2019 awards selection process. Girls will be travelling to London from all over the world for a week of learning, sharing and celebration. An exciting component of this week will be our partnership with the Women of the World Festival taking place in London’s Southbank Centre, which will feature the With and For Girls Award winners and the award ceremony.
