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.

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.

RESTART Lives is a London homelessness charity supporting homeless people (our guests) to break the cycle of homelessness and move towards independent living, feeling more empowered, confident and resilient.
Now, with the movement of the current CEO to a leadership position in another charity, the Board of trustees is seeking the organisation’s next CEO to lead the charity through the next stage of its development.
RESTART LIVES is a pan-London, small homeless charity with an office hub in Shoreditch, London E1 and projects delivered at St. Columba’s Church, Knightsbridge, London and across London more broadly. The CEO is expected to work across the organisation’s footprint.
About RESTART LIVES:
The charity’s aim is to support people overcoming the challenges of life on the streets by assisting them to secure accommodation, find employment and/or volunteering, improve social relationships, mental health and well-being. Many of its guests have come from, or are currently living in, vulnerable situations (including sleeping on the street or in temporary accommodation).
For many people who are homeless, long-term, sustainable employment is essential if they are to lead fulfilling, independent lives. We work collaboratively and strategically with other organisations to deliver effective impact and dynamic change.
RESTART is building a reputation locally as an organisation that takes a more individual, “person-centred” approach to its relationships and builds trust with guests experiencing homelessness. Addressing mental health issues and wellbeing are at the heart of what it offers, with free access to counselling, mentors and befriending services.
This approach has seen demand for its support services increase sharply, in response to its innovative new ways of meeting the needs of London’s homeless communities.

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.
As recognition of the need for climate change adaptation grows, this is an opportunity to join an organisation that has played a pioneering role in enabling adaptation projects that intersect with the broader ecological, social justice, mitigation and sustainable development needs in some of the world’s most vulnerable locations. We are 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.
The Glacier Trust’s purpose: Climate change is threatening sustainable agriculture in many parts of the Himalayas. The Glacier Trust works in partnership with local NGOs, building their capacity to enable transformative adaptation to climate change through sustainable organic agriculture in these rapidly changing environments. 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. Applicants should note that this role requires travel to Nepal and field trips of up to two weeks in remote and mountainous environments.
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.
Application process: Applicants should be familiar with all aspects of The Trust’s work and the job specification, available to download from our website.
Application is by email, we require a CV and cover letter.
- Closing date for applications: 18.00 GMT, Friday 8th July 2022.
- Interviews will be held in London or via Zoom during the week commencing 18th July 2022.
- Please note, our Executive Director will be required to hike in mountainous environments and may be required to stay in basic accommodation while on field trips in Nepal.
- We take work life-balance seriously and as such have huge flexibility in working schedules and locations so that we can work around caring commitments.
- The Glacier Trust is an equal opportunities employer. We do not discriminate on the grounds of race, religion, ability, or gender.
