Interim Chief Operating Officer

Conciliation Resources
£85,000 per annum on a full-time basis for 9 months

We were founded in 1994 by Andy Carl and David Lord and for over 25 years you have been bringing together communities torn apart by violence and mistrust, helping people resolve their differences. We connect the views of people on the ground with political processes and share learning so others can find alternatives to violent conflict. Our reach now includes the South Caucasus, countries across East and Central Africa, the Horn of Africa, South Asia, Southeast Asia and additional parts of West Africa, Philippines and the Pacific. We currently employ 85 staff, with 50 in the UK and 30 in our global offices. Over the past couple of years, we have moved to a more devolved regional structure for delivery and we have physical presence in Melbourne, Brussels and Africa.
