Bond is the UK network for organizations working in international development.
During these increasingly challenging times, charities and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) are finding it even harder to achieve their missions. Bond connects, strengthens, and champions a dynamic network of diverse civil society organizations to help eradicate global poverty, inequality, and injustice.
Bond was founded in 1993 with 61 members. Now, it unites 450 organizations, ranging from small specialist charities to large international NGOs with a worldwide presence.
What Bond does
Bond unites the international development and humanitarian sector to take action for peaceful sustainable development and drive global change. It does this in three ways:
governments and policy-makers at national and international levels through their collective advocacy with civil society.
people in the sector so that they can share expertise and develop their skills through their events, training, and member-led communities of practice.
organizations to be more impactful and sustainable through their expertise, training, recruitment service, resources, and support services.
Bond delivers a highly-rated training program to help development professionals learn new skills and develop cutting-edge expertise. Essential topics covered include funding, safeguarding, M&E, project management, and advocacy.
Bond also runs a unique job board dedicated to international development and humanitarian recruitment. As a diverse network of 450 international development organizations, Bond is uniquely placed to attract the best talent and connect recruiters to quality candidates who have the right level of expertise and experience.
