Job vacancy

Executive Office Coordinator

Salary range:
Sept. 2, 2022

We are looking for an exceptional candidate to join our team as Executive Office Coordinator.

About us

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 role

As our Executive Office Coordinator, you will support the Executive Office in running an efficient and professional service by providing excellent administrative support to the Chief Executive Officer, Leadership team and the Global Witness Boards.

This role will provide you with the opportunity to work with people in different teams across the organisation and our Board members externally as you will be providing proactive input and coordination across a variety of meetings and projects.  We will also be looking to you to identify and tell us how we can streamline the Executive Office administration processes and maximise technology so that we are as effective as we can be.

About you

You’ll be an experienced administrator who is comfortable providing a professional and high quality administrative and secretarial service to senior stakeholders.

Your success in the role will come from your brilliant organisational skills and your experience in juggling multiple priorities, prioritising tasks and responding to last minute requests.

We pride ourselves on our team ethos, so you’ll be a team player and happy to lend support when needed, but you’ll also be confident working independently. 

Working for us

We offer an excellent benefits package including a competitive salary, 25 days annual leave (exc. Bank Holidays), private medical insurance, pension and a broad range of family friendly and policies to support your work life balance. 

This role is 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 their time, but this may change in the future.

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.
