Putting people and the planet at the core of business


CORE Coalition is inviting applications from outstanding individuals for the position of Director.

Deadline for applications: 5pm on 30 January.

The job description and person specification are available here.

As our high-performing Director steps down from the post after eight years, this is a hugely exciting opportunity to lead CORE through its next phase of development and growth, as we seek to shape the future of an organisation at the centre of the corporate accountability movement.

The successful candidate will be an experienced advocate, highly motivated by our central mission to increase corporate accountability for human rights abuses and improve access to justice for victims. The Director will work closely with the board of Trustees to develop the strategic direction of the organisation, while spearheading the Coalition’s campaign for mandatory human rights due diligence in close collaboration with the Policy & Communications Officer.

The position requires a great range of skills and offers a wonderfully varied set of challenges. In this complex political environment, the self-starting Director will drive the organisation’s fundraising strategy, represent CORE on high-profile public speaking platforms, facilitate dialogue and build consensus amongst CORE’s diverse coalition partners, and manage the operations of a small, ambitious charity.

The salary for the role is £44,000 – £50,000 per year, depending on skills and experience. The role is currently 35 hours a week across five days, however applications for reduced hours (minimum 28 per week) across a four day working week would also be considered. We offer the opportunity to work flexibly. The postholder will be based in our shared office space in The Foundry, Vauxhall or if based elsewhere in the UK, work from home with regular travel to London.

We would consider applications from two candidates as part of a job-share and welcome applications from candidates from minority groups, people with disabilities, and people who identify as LGBTQ+.

How to Apply

Applicants should send a CV and cover letter (no more than 2 pages) detailing their suitability for the role, how they meet the person specification and their current/most recent salary to David Bowman by 5pm on 30 January. Interviews are expected to take place in the week commencing 10 February 2020. For an informal discussion about the role, please contact Marilyn Croser.
