Director of Programmes & Partnerships: Leadership role at an innovative NGO to tackle the causes of global deforestation.
Global Canopy is an innovative environmental organisation that targets the market forces driving two thirds of tropical deforestation worldwide. Our mission is to accelerate progress towards a deforestation-free global economy - through improved transparency, innovative finance and strategic communications. Since 2001, we have catalysed new thinking and action by leading governments, companies and investors worldwide.
We are recruiting a Programmes and Partnerships Director to help lead in the areas of Programme Strategy and planning, Development of new programme areas, and external relationships and fundraising – as well as playing a central role in the management of the organisation.
Full details are in our recruitment pack.
The Programmes and Partnerships Director is the lead accountable person for the strategic focus, sustainability and impact of Global Canopy’s Programmes.
Your role will be to effectively operationalise the Global Canopy’s strategy into programmes which are well resourced, well managed, and that deliver their expected outcomes. This will require an outward-facing orientation, maximising our ability as an organisation to enable, influence and increase accountability for the private and public sector organisations that we target.

You will be someone who naturally builds positive relationships across the organisation, able to work collaboratively and create buy-in through influence and persuasion. You will be adaptable – flexing your approach to different situations and people. Some programmes need close support to develop, while established programmes need both space to deliver, and supportive challenge and help to learn and improve.
As a member of the management team, you will play a leading role in setting the culture of the organisation and living Global Canopy’s values. You will have shared responsibility for our organisational capability and ensuring that Global Canopy continues to evolve according to the strategy that you will help to set. You will attend quarterly board meeting – with accountability for programme implementation and impact.
Partnerships are at the heart of how Global Canopy works and key to maximising our impact.
