About Global Witness
Global Witness wants to end environmental and human rights abuses driven by political and corporate elites.
The planet and its residents face 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. Global Witness strives for cohesion, solidarity, and inclusion as only together can we protect one another and the planet to build a better and more just future.
About the roles
We’re excited to be hiring two Senior Campaigners to work on our Digital Threats to Democracy campaign. One role will be until the end of 2022, and the other until August 2023.
The digital threats campaign is designed to limit the power of Big Tech to undermine democracy and spread hate, polarization and disinformation.
As a Senior Campaigner, you’ll play a leading role to develop our campaign strategies and communications to ensure our campaign has the impact it deserves. You’ll design and promote key policy and advocacy changes, represent the campaign as well as being a central link in the team to influence and progress our campaign.
You’ll bring experience in digital policy with a brilliant track record in securing progressive change at the national or international level via innovative campaigns.
You’re a skilled communicator, having produced media content to a variety of audiences. You’ll also have a strong affinity to Global Witness’ values. Finally, the ability to work collaboratively with colleagues and allies is critical in this role, so you must thrive in an environment where you frequently work with others to achieve impact.
Working for us
Global Witness has a talented team of people worldwide with offices in London, Washington DC, and Brussels. 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.
We offer an excellent benefits package including a competitive salary and 25 days annual leave (excl. Bank Holidays). We also offer healthcare insurance, wellbeing days and policies to support you during key life events.
These roles are based in London and therefore to be considered for this role you must be able to provide proof of eligibility to work in the UK. We are currently trialling a new hybrid working model for 2022 that requires staff to be in the office at least 20% of the working week.
