Suas Educational Development is an ambitious, education-focused social change organisation that supports programmes in Ireland, India, Kenya and Zambia. Our vision is a world where all young people are given the opportunity to realise their full potential in life and go on to create positive change in their society. We have two main strands of work: we work with partner schools and organisations to improve literacy outcomes for children in disadvantaged communities, and we also seek to increase third-level students’ awareness, understanding and action on a range of development issues including education.

We are at an exciting stage in our development and are looking for a General Manager to lead the STAND programme as it builds on its achievements in the third level sector in Ireland. STAND supports third-level students to progressively engage with global justice issues through various activities including a news website, an arts festival, an evening course and action learning/volunteering programmes in Ireland and overseas. We run our activities in collaboration with staff and students at third-level campuses across Ireland and the Union of Students in Ireland (USI).

We are Irish Aid’s strategic partner for our global citizenship work in the third-level sector in Ireland with an overall programme budget of approximately €500,000. We also hold a contract with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade whereby we provide staff to assist with the delivery of the Irish Aid public awareness programme.


The STAND General Manager (GM) reports directly to the Suas Board of Directors. The incumbent is responsible for leading programme development and delivery, fundraising, partnerships and representation. The GM leads and directly manages a team of Project Managers to ensure quality programme implementation. He/she is also responsible for ensuring effective financial management, reporting and donor compliance in close collaboration with the Suas GM as part of a power sharing executive.
