Salary range:
Sept. 27, 2021

About Global Witness

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