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. We continue to strive for greater cohesion, solidarity, and inclusion internally and across civil society. We 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

Global Witness is made up of passionate people with different skills and experiences, who have come together, to deliver a shared mission: a world where wealth and power are more commonly used for good and the needs of people and planet are put before profit.
To be truly effective we need a workforce that is diverse, skilled and genuinely enjoys working for Global Witness. Reporting to the HR Director, The HR Manager will play a key role in creating this environment alongside the other HR team members. This is a new role providing the successful candidate with the opportunity to develop and deliver broad and innovative activity: from change projects to policy development that supports the organisation in achieving its collective goals.
