An exciting opportunity to lead a dynamic global initiative
Girls Not Brides is seeking an experienced, energetic and committed Global Partnership Coordinator to lead a small London-based secretariat in supporting and coordinating the Partnership's global drive towards a world without child marriage.
Initiated by The Elders, Girls Not Brides brings together a broad range of non-governmental and civil society organisations from across the world working to address child marriage at the grassroots, national and global levels. The Partnership works to empower those seeking to end child marriage, to raise awareness of the harmful impact of this practice and potential solutions, and to call for urgent global action. Since Girls Not Brides launched in September 2011, more than 100 organisations from over 30 countries have joined the Partnership.
The Global Partnership Coordinator will play a pivotal role in the growth of Girls Not Brides and its impact on this neglected issue. The ideal candidate will have experience with taking an overlooked global or policy issue to higher visibility and generating results-oriented action. S/he will have the instincts, sensitivity and know-how to encourage diverse people and groups to coalesce around a cause and join forces for demonstrable change.
