Lumos
Open

International Children’s Services Manager

Across the globe, an estimated eight million children live in orphanages and other institutions. At least 80% are not orphans and have at least one living parent. Separated from families, they are deprived of the close, loving adult engagement a family provides; their physical, intellectual and emotional development is harmed; and they are exposed to significant risk of abuse and neglect. These are some of the world’s most disadvantaged children.

At Lumos, an international NGO founded by J.K. Rowling and the UK 2015 Charity of the Year, they believe this is a solvable problem. Lumos have developed a model of ‘deinstitutionalisation’ to support countries to reform child care and protection systems based on institutions and replace them with health, education and social care services which keep families together in the community.

The ICSM will be responsible for the management and development of the GTAS Technical Team; the quality assurance of Lumos technical support and ensuring such support is properly documented; the delivery of training and technical support; and in coordination with other colleagues, supporting the overall development of the GTAS Unit.
