Organization: International Campaign for Women’s Right to Safe Abortion
The Campaign is looking for a new Campaign Coordinator to start as soon as possible
The purpose of the Campaign is to build an international network that brings together individuals and organizations with an interest in promoting and providing safe abortion. We aim to create a shared platform for advocacy, debate and dialogue, as well as the sharing of skills and experience.
The current team consists of a full-time coordinator and four part-time staff. The Campaign has grown considerably over the past three years, both in terms of the membership, the activities and responsibilities that we have taken on, and the workload involved. The current coordinator wishes to step back from a directorial role, but will remain responsible for knowledge creation and dissemination. We are advertising for someone to take the leadership on planning and implementing our priority activities in the coming five years, build on the achievements of the Campaign to date, manage the work of the staff and fundraise.
We are looking for someone with at least 10 years of experience managing an international network or organisation, with a global south background and experience and a history of work for abortion and reproductive rights.
