The Donkey Sanctuary is an international animal welfare organisation, offering care and protection to donkeys and mules worldwide. We are working for a world where donkeys and mules live free from suffering, and their contribution to humanity is fully valued. We are achieving this by transforming the quality of life for donkeys, mules and people worldwide through greater understanding, collaboration and support, and by promoting lasting, mutually life-enhancing relationships.

Our Global Programme team plays a vital part in The Donkey Sanctuary’s response to Donkeys in Global Need by supporting the development of integrated strategies and programmes of work based in three regions (Latin America and Caribbean, Africa and South Asia). These programmes address the welfare needs of working donkeys and mules and support the communities that rely on them to create sustainable changes to welfare. Alongside this, we also deliver with our partners, programmes that respond to acute need and work on resilience and disaster risk reduction programmes wherever we can alleviate suffering.

The Programme Design and Impact Advisor is responsible for supporting our international efforts and the wider donkey Sanctuary staff to identify, design, develop and implement robust impactful international development programmes. This includes leading the development and implementation of a results framework to monitor, evaluate and measure impact and to capture learning, and working alongside our UK and international staff and with our partners to develop robust, evidence-based programmes. The role plays a pivotal part in embedding ways of working that allow The Donkey Sanctuary to deliver high quality programmes, measure its impact and be accountable at all times.
