Job Description: 
 
Senior Manager – Humanitarian Innovation
 
ABOUT SEEDS
 
SEEDS is a not?for?profit organisation that helps make communities resilient through comprehensive interventions in the areas of disaster readiness, response, and rehabilitation. Since 1994, the organisation has worked extensively on every major disaster in the Indian subcontinent, integrating locally?based approaches to build the long?term resilience of the communities it serves. As SEEDS looks at completing 28 years of outstanding service to humanity, it is re?anchoring its approach to building resilience through innovation.
 
As part of its Strategy 2030, SEEDS is helping more than 300 million people, who are vulnerable to the impacts of the climate crisis in India, be resilient despite recurring disasters. Innovation would be the key for overcoming some of the most insurmountable challenges and would cut across all of SEEDS’ action areas in this journey. Moreover, there is a need to break the lagging inertia in the system that continues to deploy archaic tools and methods in dealing with new complex challenges.
 
Recognising that the task in hand is too ambitious for any one organisation to make a significant impact, there is a need to create an ecosystem with shared objectives. Such an ecosystem of likeminded individuals, organisations, and enterprises would stand a better chance of bringing about change at scale and diversity. The ecosystem will need to be enabled with sustained efforts in building partnerships and local capacities. With that background, SEEDS has conceived and hosts a Humanitarian Innovation Lab acting as an accelerator for local humanitarian actors who have limited capacities for innovation management.
