Global Witness must be able to continue to confront corruption and the systems that enable it. We’re recruiting a Senior Philanthropy Manager to raise funds for our critical work.
When someone is murdered defending their home because big business wants their land this is corruption. When people struggle for shelter while empty mansions are used to launder money – this is corruption. When a child breathes polluted air because coal companies and politicians put profits before people – this is corruption.
Our mission is to campaign to end this and we do this by carrying out hard-hitting investigations, exposing the facts, and pushing to change the system. We are independent, not for profit, and we work with partners around the world in our fight for justice.

We’re looking for experience in developing and managing senior level relationships, along with a creative and entrepreneurial approach to spotting new fundraising opportunities.
