Job Title: Director
Working For: CORE Coalition
Salary: Circa £44,000-£50,000 per year, dependent on skills and experience
CORE is the UK civil society coalition on corporate accountability. We work to change the rules to make companies more accountable. We want to tip the scales so that corporations’ drive for profit is balanced by the interests of society and the environment. We do this by campaigning with our partners - almost 50 of the UK's leading organisations with expertise on human rights, international development and the environment - to end corporate practices that harm people and the environment, and to make it easier for victims of corporate abuse to access justice. .
As our high-performing Director steps down from the post after eight years, we are seeking an experienced advocate, highly motivated by our central mission to increase corporate accountability for human rights abuses and improve access to justice for victims.
This is a hugely exciting opportunity to lead CORE through its next phase of development and growth, as we seek to shape the future of an organisation at the centre of the corporate accountability movement.
The Director will work closely with the board of Trustees to develop the strategic direction of the organisation, while spearheading the Coalition’s campaign for mandatory human rights due diligence in close collaboration with the Policy & Communications Officer.
The position requires a great range of skills and offers a wonderfully varied set of challenges. In this complex political environment, the self-starting Director will drive the organisation’s fundraising strategy, represent CORE on high-profile public speaking platforms, facilitate dialogue and build consensus amongst CORE’s diverse coalition partners, and manage the operations of a small, ambitious charity.
The role is currently 35 hours a week across five days, however applications for reduced hours (minimum 28 per week) across a four day working week would also be considered. We offer the opportunity to work flexibly. The postholder will be based in our shared office space in The Foundry, Vauxhall or if based elsewhere in the UK, work from home with regular travel to London. We welcome applications from candidates from minority groups, people with disabilities, and people who identify as LGBTQ+.
Closing Date: 30 January 2020
Deadline for applications is 5pm
Interviews are expected to take place in the week commencing 10 February 2020.
