Practical Action is a global innovator, inspiring people to discover and adopt ingenious, practical ways to free themselves from poverty and disadvantage.

A variety of skills and expertise are needed for us to do this. Whether it's working directly on project delivery, sharing knowledge as well as influencing policy decisions, promoting our work and fundraising - all of these roles contribute to making a real and lasting change.  

Could Practical Action be the next step in your career?

Our ambition is that by 2030 we will have transformed the way technology is used to improve the lives of people living in, or vulnerable to poverty. 

It’s a huge challenge, and we can’t do it without our extremely talented and committed staff.
