Frequently Asked Questions

How do I apply for a job with Action For Humanity?

Simply email with your CV, and the role you are applying for in the subject of the email

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 still 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.

Once I have applied, when will I hear?

Usually it will be within one – two weeks after the deadline. If you do not hear from us within 8 weeks of applying, you may assume that that particular application has not been shortlisted, though you may apply again in the future, or email to follow up

Can I make any changes to my details once I have submitted my application?

Yes, though try not to do this often! Simply reply to the email which you have already submitted, with your updates included.
