Position description

We are seeking a Stakeholder Relations Manager, who will report to the Director of Stakeholder Relations. The stakeholder relations team conducts research that informs engagement strategy with brands and retailers involved in each investigation and helps shape the disclosure strategy where Transparentem shares the results of each investigation with relevant stakeholders, including investors and board members of brands and retailers, relevant NGOs, regulators and select journalists and advocacy organizations.  The team also performs due diligence on remediation plans for each investigation by conducting secondary research and consulting labor and environment experts and government agencies.  In addition, the team serves as an in-house industry expert to the rest of the organization.

S/he will:

  • Work with the Director of Stakeholder Relations to develop company engagement and broader disclosure strategy;
  • Work with the investigative team to coordinate and conduct company and industry sub-sector research;
  • Identify and benchmark best practices for remediation for specific investigations;
  • Create presentation materials;
  • Keep abreast of relevant industry research, trends, and news and communicate developments to the rest of the team; and
  • Work with the Stakeholder Relations Analyst to manage department communications, logistics, financial reporting, and other administration.

Transparentem does not publish the products of its investigations. Instead, we deliver our report strategically to selected entities best positioned to leverage their influence to positively impact vulnerable populations and remediate degraded environments.  We are currently focused on the apparel, accessories, and footwear industries.


What We’re Looking For:

This is a challenging role that requires total discretion, as well as strong investigative, analytical, and organizational skills. We are looking for individuals with:

  • 3-5 years of experience with sourcing or compliance teams in the apparel, footwear, toy, or electronics industries, or 3-5 years of experience of working at multi-stakeholder initiatives (MSIs);
  • A solid grounding in human rights, labor, and/or environmental issues in supply chains;
  • Experience engaging with brands, NGOs, government agencies, multi-stakeholder initiatives, industry associations, and/or similar groups;
  • Strong research, writing, and communication skills;
  • Field experience in production countries a plus;
  • Professional communications experience a plus;
  • Advanced degree in supply chain management, business administration, human rights, law, or other relevant field;
  • Fluency in English required;
  • US work authorization required.
