Ten years ago, the idea of public registers of beneficial ownership was a campaigner’s long-shot. But now, with governments across the world committed to collecting and publishing information on the people who really own companies, OpenOwnership is making it a reality.
With backing from multiple funding agencies, including the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) and the World Bank, OpenOwnership is scaling its tools and support to increase beneficial ownership transparency globally, based on uptake of the Beneficial Ownership Data Standard and OpenOwnership Register. At this critical stage, we are recruiting a number of new roles to scale our work.

You will join a small distributed team at a time of significant growth, taking on a defined but varied range of responsibilities to drive forward OpenOwnership’s support to national governments. We’re a fast-paced startup, so be ready to pitch in where needed. People who enjoy learning and variety in their work will be particularly well-suited for our team. You will report to OpenOwnership’s to Senior Program & Policy Manager.
Term: Options for a fixed term or permanent staff contract, or fixed length consultancy term.
