Job Opportunities

Senior Campaigner – Forest Risk Commodities

Position type: Full time, permanent contract

Salary: up to £40,000 per annum, depending on experience and skills 

Earthsight is a non-profit organisation dedicated to researching and investigating environmental and social crime and injustice. It uses cutting-edge investigative methods to uncover and expose wrongdoing. We are hiring for a new and exciting role, focused on pushing forward pioneering legislation in consumer countries aimed at addressing abuses overseas embodied in their imports and investments.

Since emerging as a fully-fledged organisation in 2016, we have punched far above our weight, publishing a series of major investigative exposés on high-level corruption, human rights and environmental abuses with links to global markets which have obtained high-profile media attention and led to crackdowns in places as far afield as Ukraine and Paraguay, as well as changes in purchasing practices of major western corporations. Most importantly, our work has helped persuade governments in rich countries to accept the need for regulatory action to address their role. A number of relevant laws are in development, while others are already on the books. But if these laws are to work they need to be properly designed and enforced.

Earthsight is looking for a Senior Campaigner with at least three years of experience in a relevant field to join our growing team. At this critical moment of opportunity, the post holder will be responsible for coordinating Earthsight’s efforts to ensure that the right laws are passed and then properly implemented.

The position is offered as a full-time permanent contract. Flexible working will be considered. There is also the possibility that the role may be offered as a job share between two individuals. Earthsight is an equal opportunities employer and is committed to ensuring careers in the charity sector are open to all. We value difference and believe it enhances our capabilities. We therefore particularly encourage applications from people from a range of different backgrounds.

Based: Home working until at least May 2021, then London office, with occasional travel overseas

Application deadline: Midday GMT, Wednesday 10 March 2021

Benefits: 25 days holiday; cycle-to-work scheme; contributory pension
