Position description

For over 25 years our investigations, campaigns, advocacy and truth-telling has catalysed change that has had global impact. These skills are needed now more than ever.

Our work is focused on changing the systems which enable abuse to the environment and human rights and allow the powerful to make decisions which are corrupt or based entirely around self-interest.

About the role

We’re excited to be hiring a senior campaigner for our Brussels office to work on our campaign which aims to change EU climate and energy policy and legislation to end support for fossil gas.

About you

You’ll have significant knowledge and expertise on development of effective and sound policy positions and recommendations relating to EU energy policy. You’ll already have achieved a number of campaign successes in engaging and influencing EU decision makers in the Commission, Parliament and Council to secure changes to EU climate and energy legislation.

With a deep working knowledge of the EU political environment, you’ll use your excellent communication and collaboration skills to build and maximise relationships.

Fluent in English and one other language, you’ll also be a great team player. Team working and the ability to work collaboratively is critical in this role, so you must thrive in an environment where you frequently work with others to achieve impact.

Working for us

Global Witness has a talented team of people worldwide with offices in London, Washington DC and Brussels.

We aspire to create a workplace where everyone is accepted for who they are, regardless of age, disability, gender identity, marital status, race, faith or belief, sexual orientation, socioeconomic background, and whether you’re pregnant or on family leave.

We are actively trying to increase diversity in our organisation and strongly encourage applications from all sections of the community.

Our benefits are competitive. We offer 23 days annual leave (exc. public holidays), healthcare insurance and flexible and agile working arrangements.
