Frances Longley

UK Chief Executive

"I feel very lucky to be a part of Amref Health Africa's team. My career in international development has been focussed on three areas of passion: sub-Saharan Africa, work which is shaped, owned and valued by the communities where it takes place and the importance of health as a basic and fundamental human right. Amref has all three woven permanently into its DNA."


Stella Helps

Head of Finance

"Working for Amref UK is great – we’re part of a large global organisation with immense expertise, coverage and capacity to implement really innovative and valuable work in Africa, which is really exciting. But as Amref UK, we’re a small dynamic team and can therefore act quickly and efficiently to support our projects. The best of both worlds!" 


Alexander Pike

Finance and Administration Officer

"From my time living and working on a Maasai school project in a remote region of Northern Tanzania, it became heartbreakingly clear that without strengthening access to healthcare and health systems, a quality education could only take a person so far. Working for Amref Health Africa I knew that I could be a part of real systematic change led by local people, building solid foundations for future prosperity."


Alice Mabey

PA Administrator

"I grew up in the MRC compound in West Africa as a consequence of my dad’s work in International Health and Development.  Because of this, I have always had an interest in these areas, particularly with regard to the issues faced by Women; one of the core focuses of Amref UK."

Steve Murigi

Global Account Manager - GSK

“Growing up as a young kid in Kenya - I was fascinated by the Amref flying doctors. A uniquely African led organisation with the interests of marginalised communities at heart. By employing the tools of our time, Amref demonstrates commitment to improving the health of people in Africa by partnering with and empowering communities, and strengthening health systems.  It is this principle of genuine partnership - built on trust and mutual respect that ensures sustainability of our work. It is this principle that resonates with who I am."

Melanie Coyne

Programme Manager

“I feel proud to work for Amref because of the genuine collaboration and engagement with both community members and health service providers that goes into the design of every part of our work. When I visit our projects and meet women from the communities we work with and health workers from the facilities we support, there is a real sense of satisfaction with the achievements that they have brought about, with Amref’s help. I like the fact that our work is constantly evolving because we learn from our previous experiences, whether it’s in our water and sanitation interventions, or maternal health projects."

Mark McGuinness

Programme Officer

"I wanted to work for Amref Health Africa, because the organisation is African-led and respects the dignity of the people they support."

Columbus Ndeloa

Programme Officer

"I have worked with many international NGOs but Amref has a unique approach to development intervention, with focus on maternal and child health, largely ignored by many NGOs. In addition, Amref uses community-based healthcare as basis for its work and by so doing Amref empowers communities to be both partners and beneficiaries. Apart from being an African based organisation, Amref have a spectrum of knowledge and experience with African people, designing and implementing programs that very few international NGOs have. I am happy to be a member of the Amref family and to contribute in lasting health change in Africa."

Sarah Jefferys

Programme Assistant

"Since visiting a remote part of eastern Kenya whilst I was at school, I have been very interested in international development in Africa. I really like the fact that Amref is Headquartered in Nairobi, and is supported, rather than led, by offices such as the UK. I’m particularly interested in Amref’s training and capacity building work, which enables health workers to increase their skills and knowledge, which they can then pass onto others and use to better respond to the health needs of their communities."


Victoria Bamber

Communications Officer

"I applied for a job at Amref Health Africa because I wanted to work somewhere that I could talk about with passion and enthusiasm. It's a fantastic, authentic charity and I love that the communities we work with are at the forefront of every decision we make."


Katie Grey

Head of Fundraising

"I joined Amref because I believe that working with women and girls is the most effective way to improve lives across Sub-Saharan Africa.  I’m excited to share Amref’s unique approach and ambition for the future with our existing supporters as well as new individuals and organisations."

Georgina Brown

Corporate Partnerships Officer

"Working to engage corporates with Amref’s work in international health development is certainly where I feel I belong. Simply speaking, Amref’s personalised approach to proactively interacting and building lasting shared value partnerships that truly integrate objectives leading to real world maximum impact is everything I have been preparing myself for."


Stephanie Mooney

Trusts and Foundations Officer

“I think it’s great that Amref is African led - that’s what makes it different from many other development organisations and such an exciting place to work.” 

Ruthie Whiter

Individual Giving Officer

“I wanted to work for Amref because of their approach - there is no ‘one-size fits all’ attitude here. This tailored response shows the respect the charity has for local customs and traditions.”

Rebecca Stagg

Fundraising Assistant

"I’ve been interested in African development since volunteering with a small education and poverty alleviation charity in Tanzania after leaving school. I love being part of such a forward-looking organisation which is being driven by the very people who it was set up to help."
