Job description

For over 25 years, Global Witness has fought to end environmental and human rights abuses driven by political and corporate elites.  Through bold and hard-hitting investigations, campaigning, and advocacy, we have catalysed change across the world to challenge the systems that enable these harms.

Our work is needed now more than ever.

We are facing a crisis: the climate is being destroyed and civic freedoms are deteriorating.  Rampant abuse of power is pushing the world to breaking point as Governments and Big Corporations all too often go unchecked in their exploitation of our planet and its people.

For us to succeed, we need to embody the principles we fight for, strive for greater cohesion, solidarity, and inclusion internally and across civil society and stay ahead of the curve by learning from allies and other social and political movements that share our mission.

Only together can we protect one another and the planet to build a better, more just future.

About the role

Reporting to the CEO, this is an opportunity to bring your experience of achieving operational excellence and a track record of leading projects to create lasting positive change across the organisation.  Our new Director of Operations will lead experienced and dedicated teams across Finance, IT and Facilities.  You will also be an active and effective member of the leadership team making sure that we work together to set organisation direction, ensure financial sustainability, create a great place to work and ensure that those who we work with externally experience the best of us. 

About you

We are looking for a highly collaborative individual, with a ‘can do’ attitude.  You will be adept at identifying, planning for and delivering opportunities that maximise our effectiveness, support our passionate people and our board.

With a firm grasp of issues of financial strategy and sustainability, risk, data security and health and safety you are an engaging and inclusive leader with experience of leading multi-disciplinary teams. 

Working for us

We aim to be a diverse and inclusive place to work. We value new perspectives, original ideas and different ways of working. We believe that diverse views and experiences improve the way we do our work. We do our best to make our jobs accessible to all regardless of gender, ethnicity, age, disability, sexual orientation or identity.
