Job Description

About us

From shutting down Khmer Rouge’s illegal logging industry to uncovering the truth about blood diamonds.  Global Witness confronts corruption and the systems that enable it.  Our investigations reveal who is stealing the money, how they are spending it and how they are hiding it.  In the face of climate change, misuse of power, and increasing disregard for human rights, this work has never been more urgent. And we have never been more determined.

About the role

Working in a proactive and enthusiastic team, you will contribute to our ambitious fundraising targets. You will identify and develop trust and statutory fundraising opportunities and write or oversee the production of inspiring applications to secure funding. You will also maintain excellent relationships with current and prospective funders with a focus on diversifying funding. 

About you

You’ll bring a track record in securing significant grants from trust and statutory donors.  An exceptional account manager with excellent networking skills, your persuasive writing style produces winning grant applications. Finally, the ability to live with ambiguity and manage changing priorities in a collaborative, but fast paced environment is essential. 

What you can expect from us

Global Witness has a committed and passionate team of people worldwide.  The majority of our employees are based in London but we have offices in Washington DC and Brussels too.  We aspire to be a diverse and inclusive place to work, where difference is valued and celebrated.  We know that a diverse and inclusive workplace is an asset to any organisation and that different views and experiences improve the way we do our work. 

Our benefits package is competitive.  We offer 25 days holiday per annum (exc. public holidays), private healthcare and flexible and agile working arrangements.
