Shiva Foundation envisions a world that operates on the basis of value-based leadership, where individuals are equipped with the knowledge, frameworks and tools to act in service of equity, freedom and justice. We believe it is our collective responsibility to put people before profit, centre people’s lived realities of oppression and step back to make space for marginalised voices to be heard. We recognise the need to understand where power inequalities exist in order to build a more just world. Our goal is to design sustainable models to tackle the systemic inequity impacting marginalised individuals and communities across the U.K. and India. Our role is two-fold.
- We act as a support and anchor for those working on the frontline - this includes community groups, grassroots organisations, local councils, civil society, local leaders and businesses etc.
- We also leverage networks and influence to enact meaningful change at the policy level, in government and across business.
We do this in four ways, by providing:
- Knowledge, frameworks and tools to facilitate concrete action;
- Resources and capacity for collaborative working;
- Expertise for impactful policy advocacy; and
- Immediate support and relief.
Our focus is across two key issue areas:
- Tackling modern slavery and promoting labour rights; and
- Tackling gender based violence (GBV), especially against racially minoritised women.
Please note, our website is in the process of being updated so while it captures a lot of our past work, it is not completely up-to-date with more current projects. We are happy to share more about these during the interview stage.
About our Priorities
Our work is wide-ranging and collaborative. In particular we are currently prioritising:
- Embedding labour rights and modern slavery provisions into policy. We ensure that local and national government policies meaningfully address modern slavery and labour rights violations and support survivors fully. This includes but also goes beyond the Modern Slavery Act. We work with policy-makers, local councils, government and regulatory bodies to make this happen.
- Shifting corporate practices towards more equitable power distribution. We provide expertise to ensure that business policies and practices meaningfully incorporate activities that address modern slavery and uphold labour rights. We work with small and medium businesses to make this happen.
- Improving statutory agency response to GBV against racially minoritised women. We advocate an improvement in statutory agency policy and practice when it comes to supporting racially minoritised survivors of GBV. This includes more consistent, integrated and tailored support for survivors who live at the intersections of multiple oppressions. We work with statutory local agencies, policy-makers and civil society to make this happen.
- Better resourcing racially minoritised communities. We work to equip racially minoritised communities with more and better resources to be able to respond to GBV and access support services in ways that work for them when violence does happen. We work with leaders or community-led organisations in racially minoritised communities as well as civil society to make this happen.
About the Role
The Managing Director is responsible for the management and direction of Shiva Foundation’s projects and day-to-day activities, as well as providing leadership to the team.

You will be expected to act as the public face of the organisation, building relationships with stakeholders from across a range of sectors including government and public sector, business and civil society. Over time, you will also be expected to develop expertise in modern slavery, labour rights and gender-based violence in order to draft briefs, present at events, feed onto national strategies etc.
- Providing strategic and tactical direction to the organisation, setting key goals and KPIs for both short and long term.
- Maintaining an understanding of current key insights and changes in our two thematic areas as well as how those can feed into our work and how we can add out expertise to relevant national and international conversations.

- Leading team management, such as setting the team culture and practices, overseeing all work and creating worker-centric management practices that inspire and support individual team members.
- Personnel management, including performance reviews and 1-1s and day-to-day HR.
- Hiring, training, developing and managing staff and/or consultants.
- Acting as a key point of contact to the board for reporting and strategic purposes.

- Representing the organisation at key working groups, partnership meetings, national forums, operational units, panels, conferences etc.
