Deadline: 18 March
Our vision is a world without child marriage where girls and women enjoy equal status with boys and men, and are able to achieve their full potential in all aspects of their lives. Our vision challenges deeply embedded social norms that harm the lives of girls, women and their communities.
Girls Not Brides is the only global organisation entirely focused on creating and sustaining a worldwide movement to end child marriage, and ensuring that this movement leads to tangible change for the girls at risk or affected by the practice. We are a network of over 1000 civil society organisations in over 95 countries, all committed to working in partnership to end child marriage.
We are seeking an exceptional individual to be our next Chief Executive Officer and to lead the Girls Not Brides secretariat and member organisations’ efforts to reduce and ultimately end child marriage. Reporting to the Board, the Chief Executive Officer will lead the development of the vision, strategic plan and direction of our work. You will be a spokesperson and ambassador for Girls Not Brides, championing high visibility of the issue of child marriage and generating results-oriented action. You will lead, inspire and develop the global leadership team of the secretariat and foster a positive, open and motivated organisational culture. The role will involve extensive international travel. Here are the details: https://www.girlsnotbrides.org/about-girls-not-brides/jobs/
