For over 25 years, Global Witness has fought to end environmental and human rights abuses driven by political elites and predatory companies. Through our bold and hard-hitting investigations, campaigning and advocacy, we have catalysed change across the world to challenge the systems that enable these harms. Right now our work is needed 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 big corporations go unchecked in their exploitation of people and the planet, with governments complicit or turning a blind eye.

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.
