Save the Children International has an exciting opportunity for you to join our team as the–Global Director, Migration and Displacement Initiative (MDI)at any existing Save the Children International office location.
At the end of 2019, 79mn million people (>40% children) were displaced by conflict and violence, with many more millions displaced by climate change and other factors. These numbers are increasing rapidly. (Irregular) migration is one of the pivotal political issues of our time, influencing much of the development and donor discourse – and again is an issue that impacts upon millions of vulnerable children worldwide. In response to the increasing impact of displacement and migration crises upon children, Save the Children established its Migration and Displacement Initiative (MDI) at the end of 2016
