World Horse Welfare, the leading international horse charity, is dedicated to promoting horse welfare worldwide.

We are seeking to recruit a full time Programme Officer to join the International team based at our Head Office in Norfolk.

World Horse Welfare’s International department works in a total of nine countries. In each of these countries we are running projects that mainly incorporate training of service providers for working equids. The Programme Officer’s role is to act as one of the main links between Head Office and our field operations and to ensure that all aspects of the programmes implemented by the charity are delivered in an appropriate and effective manner.

The successful candidate must be able to travel and be away from the UK for in excess of 50% of the working time. You will have extensive experience of working in overseas locations in the development sector, a proven track record of designing and delivering training courses, team leadership skills and experience of working with different cultures. You must possess a graduate qualification or equivalent experience in a relevant field, communications skills both verbal and written; especially with people for whom English is not their mother tongue.

Knowledge of equine handling techniques or working with equine related trades such as farriers and saddlers would be an advantage as would the knowledge of languages other than English; especially Spanish or French.
Interviews will be held on Wednesday 14 March 2012 at World Horse Welfare’s Head Office in Norfolk.
