Sexual violence against children and adolescents (SVAC) is one of the largest silent pandemics of our time. It is a problem that festers in homes, online, and in communities in every country on Earth. To end this silent pandemic, the brave movement, a new global networked movement of survivors and allies has been launched. The aim of the brave movement is to drive advocacy and campaigns as a powerful voice for transformative change.
Working with the direction of global survivors and allied partners, this new movement demands an end to the pandemic of sexual violence through: (1) advocacy for bold public policy solutions; and (2) campaigns to shift societal norms, eradicate survivor stigma and break the conspiracy of silence that enables sexual violence to continue. The brave movement is mobilizing survivors and allies that are globally connected, nationally coordinated, and locally grounded. It has adopted a three-pronged advocacy framework of prevention, healing and justice.
At present, the brave movement has identified a number of specific areas of emphasis, including: building a global movement of survivors of sexual violence in childhood; the end to statue of limitations worldwide; creating a safer on-line environment for children; putting prevention and response to sexual violence against children on the agenda of the G7; and increasing exponentially the funding available for this work.
We are seeking a dynamic, innovative leader with significant advocacy and campaigning experience to help realise the full potential of this game-changing effort for children and adolescents worldwide. This is a leadership and facilitation role for a strong manager and convener.
The Movement Executive Director will work with and support three key stakeholder and governance groups:

- Global Steering Group (GSG): This group will include representatives from the SAG and also large, global organizations; it is a decision-making body, and it will determine priority campaigns and advocacy efforts.
The Movement Executive Director’s direct supervisor will be the Chairperson of the GSG. Initial members of the GSG are selected representatives from The Army of Survivors, End Violence Lab at the University of Edinburgh, Girls Not Brides, Together for Girls, We Protect Global Alliance, World Vision International and representatives from the Global Survivors Advocacy Group.
The Movement Executive Director will coordinate and oversee the brave movement’s development and expansion, being both a leader and a facilitator of this advocacy movement. This accomplished senior advocate and campaigner will have extensive experience in supporting collaborative international advocacy, movements and campaigns, with diverse groups and stakeholders, across a number of continents. The brave movement is global in nature and is open to the coordinator to be based in any location.
In August 2021, the brave movement received a funding commitment of over $10 million for its initial 4 years, which is a rare and unique opportunity for a start-up.

The movement is looking for other funding partners to expand investments as it establishes and grows its strategy.

The Glacier Trust is looking for a creative, passionate and committed Executive Director to lead the ongoing development of our project work in Nepal, and advocacy work in the UK.
Since its launch in 2008, The Glacier Trust (TGT) has established itself as a small but impactful NGO enabling climate change adaptation in Nepal’s remote mountain communities. In recent years TGT has increased its profile in the UK through the launch of a project-linked coffee brand ‘Nepal Glacier Coffee’, a short film ‘Coffee. Climate. Community.’ and most recently a podcast and book project ‘Great Adaptations’, which even included a collaboration with a Bristol based brewery to create a Great Adaptations beer that used ingredients grown organically in our project areas.
In Nepal, we partner with two excellent NGOs, Eco Himal Nepal and HICODEF, with whom we have enabled the successful piloting, scaling, and replication of a community-led Agro Forestry Resource Centre model for climate resilient sustainable development. Our Higher Education programme has evolved through the coordination of a partnership between UK and Nepal Universities to enable early career researchers to conduct climate change adaptation related fieldwork as part of our contribution to nurturing the next generation of climate change adaptation professionals.
The principle purpose of this new post is to ensure the efficient and effective day to day running of The Glacier Trust (TGT). This includes management of fundraising, project selection, and providing strategic leadership concerning the direction of The Glacier Trust in partnership with the Board of Trustees and two advisors, one in Nepal and one in the UK.

The Trust also has a higher education programme providing scholarships that enable Nepali undergraduates and postgraduates to improve the quality of their fieldwork and research programmes. The Glacier Trust has also built its profile in the UK as an advocate for approaches to climate change adaptation that are both transformative and aligned with climate justice.
Candidate suitability: This post would provide an ideal grounding for someone wanting to build a career in international development, climate adaptation, and leadership in the NGO sector. It is an opportunity to lead an organisation that is looking to increase its outreach and further develop the quality and quantity of what it delivers. Flexibility in time allocation and working arrangements means that it should be possible to accommodate academic study / research commitments, and/or family and caring commitments.

Qualifications and experience: Applicants should have at least a relevant degree, and at least one year’s relevant experience in fundraising. Applicants will need to demonstrate their potential to increase The Trust’s outreach, in terms of (1) bringing in funding; (2) working in collaboration with our partner NGOs and Universities in Nepal; and (3) cause-related advocacy and awareness raising.

This is a full-time role in the heart of an exciting climate strategy start-up focused on leveraging climate philanthropy and campaign power for bold climate action. The Global Gas Hub supports the acceleration of a global phase-out of fossil gas, addressing one of the biggest drivers of the climate crisis. The Hub is a project hosted at the Energy Transition Fund and incubated by the Stichting Funder Forum.
The organisation seeks an experienced, passionate, and motivated person committed to phasing out fossil fuels and gas. The Strategy Director will be analysing data and trends related to gas and energy systems, using their strong analytical lens and knowledge of policy processes to support strategy development. These strategies will inform the philanthropic community about their investments to phase out the production and use of oil and gas. The person will be responsible for convening key actors on emerging topics in the sector, identifying potential projects, and overseeing the development of a data-driven dashboard tracking the trajectory of fossil gas phaseout globally.
The position requires a person with an excellent understanding of the fossil fuel phase-out ecosystem globally, strong analytical and research skills, along with the ability to think strategically and manage a diverse stream of work. The successful candidate will demonstrate the ability to grasp technical issues, derive insights from data, and work with a team to translate these insights into actionable strategic recommendations. The candidate should work well across networks and communicate effectively. The Strategy Director will report to the Hub's Project Director, be part of its leadership team, and be expected to contribute to the organisation's growth and development.
Roles and Responsibilities
- Undertake strategy development informed by robust data and analysis, advising philanthropies toward more effective grantmaking;
- Lead development of strategies involving “inside and outside track” engagement and influence of policy processes;
- Identification of emerging areas of interest in shifting away from the production and use of fossil gas, decarbonising the economy and identifying the right actors to ensure consultative strategy development;
- Build strong relationships with the community of actors working to phase out the production and use of fossil gas.
- Analyse data and trends on fossil gas growth, market and prices;
- Contribute to global strategies to reduce climate emissions from fossil gas based on sound research and analysis;
- Respond to requests for deep-dive comments from the funder community to inform grantmaking strategy;
- Oversee development of regional/global dashboard tracking real-world trends in fossil gas, serving the CSOs and philanthropies on an ongoing basis;
- Oversee the development of data incubation projects primarily in the Global South in line with the global strategy of reducing emissions from fossil gas.
- Minimum 5-7 years of relevant professional experience working on technical/strategic issues in the environmental or energy sectors within a research institution, think tank, civil society organisation, consulting firm or similar;
- Strong strategy skills, with intellectual agility and the ability to analyse, think critically, and understand emerging issues and opportunities to drive the transition from fossil gas;
- Experience with policy processes and an understanding of how policy processes are shaped and influenced;
- Experience managing people and ability to work in a team, collaborating with and providing support to other team members as needed;
- Strong analytical skills and excellent knowledge of Excel (experience in database management and data analysis);
- Strong interpersonal skills as well as good communication and presentation skills.
- Ability to write in English fluently, accurately and concisely;
- Ability to understand how insights from data translate into actionable recommendations for stakeholders;
- Demonstrated project management experience and an ability to deliver to deadlines.
These additional qualifications would make you even a stronger candidate for the job but should not deter you from applying:
- Deep knowledge of energy systems, climate change, fossil fuels, and gas;
- Experience with a range of energy-related data sources, including experience with subscription databases & analytical tools;
- Knowledge and relationships with data-driven organisations, especially in the climate justice and energy transition space;
- A strong relationship with the civil society and familiarity with strategy, campaigns and advocacy within the climate justice space;
- Knowledge of Spanish.

Hours: Full time, 37 hours per week
Salary: Starting at £63,000 p.a.
Permanent home-based post in England with some travel. Line managed by the chief executive. We are open to exploring part time and job share options.
This is no ordinary senior leadership role. This is a role that will challenge you to get radical, unleashing your inner activist to support Mayday and the people we walk alongside by:
- Building our consultancy business and our local and national public service transformation partnerships, generating income but also delivering real impact
- Influencing commissioners and providers to build new public service approaches in local areas of England, including London and the Southeast
- Supporting our fundraiser and colleagues to win new grants and contracts, expanding our reach and impact in the homelessness support, health, and other public service sectors
- Supporting our Head of Impact to develop and deliver our data and learning strategy and helping to communicate and share our impact.
You must have a passion for social justice and experience of transforming public services, winning income, building partnerships, and influencing at a senior level. As part of the leadership team of this radical charity and our diverse team, you will be an excellent communicator and listener, open to challenge, and curious to learn from others.
We recognise that to create a radical and impactful organisation we need a diverse senior team that is representative of the diverse communities we hope to support. We recognise that there is a long history of racism and other forms of prejudice within the charity sector and we are committed to building our organisational and personal understanding of inequality and to becoming an inclusive and anti-oppressive organisation. We support the Disability Confident scheme, and we are open to making reasonable adjustments to the application and interview process to ensure that everyone who is interested can apply.

The Cooperative AI Foundation (CAIF, pronounced “safe”) is a new charitable entity whose mission is to support research that will improve the cooperative intelligence of advanced AI for the benefit of all humanity. This mission is driven by our belief that many of the most important problems facing humanity – climate change, nuclear war, and pandemic preparedness, to name but a few – are problems of cooperation, and that AI will be increasingly important when it comes to solving (or exacerbating) such problems.
With an initial endowment of $15 million from the Center for Emerging Risk Research, our ambition is to build the nascent field of Cooperative AI, improving the ability of AI systems to engender cooperation between humans, machines, and institutions. A more detailed introduction to this field can be found in our recent Nature piece and paper on open problems in Cooperative AI.
The Chief Operating Officer (COO) will report only to the Executive Director (ED), working closely with them to scale and shape the foundation’s structure and processes during its first years of operation, and managing both these processes and all other staff. As such, the role will be central to CAIF’s operations, and provides an exciting opportunity to proactively shape and manage the foundation in order to maximise its impact. More concretely, the responsibilities of the COO would include:
- Designing and implementing the internal processes required for CAIF to run smoothly and efficiently,
- Shaping the structure and culture of the foundation, including building and managing the rest of the team,
- Overseeing and helping to evaluate the progress of CAIF’s activities, with respect to its mission.
In the initial stages of CAIF's growth, the COO may also take on other responsibilities, including organising important events such as workshops, or creating and managing key programs such as those for PhD scholarships. With that said, we will also encourage and expect the COO to hire further staff to assist with operations as necessary. The ideal candidate would possess:
- Excellent organisational and project management skills
- Ambition, motivation, and excitement with respect to CAIF's mission
- A strong ability to manage people, with good interpersonal and communication skills
- Excellent day-to-day judgement in running an organisation
- The ability to coordinate with a wide range of stakeholders, especially academia
Note that prior knowledge of Cooperative AI is not required. Please contact us if you have any questions about the role.
This is a full-time role. CAIF’s current staff are based in both Oxford and London, and therefore operate remotely. We anticipate that the successful candidate will also be based remotely, and place no constraints on location aside from sufficient overlap between working hours with the UK. We expect to be able to employ people in most countries, though we cannot guarantee every case in advance. We also expect to remain remote for the foreseeable future, though we are likely to be able to offer shared office space in Oxford or London with organisations in our network (such as the Centre for the Governance of AI, or the Center on Long-Term Risk).
Salaries at CAIF account for relevant experience. For this role we expect salaries offered to be between £80,000 and £100,000. Please note that these figures are implicitly formed with respect to the cost of living in Oxford, and may be increased in line with the cost of living for those based in more expensive locations. A successful candidate with less prior experience should also expect their salary to increase with time spent in the role, according to this bracket.
Due to the importance of this particular role, however, and higher salaries for similar roles in the private sector, we are open to considering a substantially higher salary range if this would impact the decision of our preferred candidate. Please contact us if uncertainty regarding compensation might prevent you from applying.
Additional benefits associated with the role include health insurance, flexible work hours, 20 weeks of paid parental leave, ergonomic equipment, 5% pension contribution, and 25 days of paid vacation.
The application deadline is the 10th of July at 23:59 UTC. Please apply using the form above. You will be asked to submit a CV and a cover letter addressing a few short questions. Further information on the details required are provided on the first page of the application form.
Candidates who succeed in passing the application review process will be invited to a short interview in the fortnight following the application deadline. The next stages will consist of a short remote work test, followed by a longer interview, reference calls, and a longer, collaborative work test at the final stage. We will confirm the timeline in more detail when we reach out to schedule initial interviews, and hope to communicate final decisions by the middle of August.
We are committed to fostering a culture of inclusion, and we encourage individuals with diverse backgrounds and experiences to apply. We especially encourage applications from underrepresented groups, and are an equal opportunity employer. If you have specific needs or circumstances that require accommodation, please contact us.
The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
