Due to the end of an interim appointment and an increase in demand for our wellbeing support, we are seeking to contract a highly-experienced and capable consultant to lead our wellbeing and resilience workstream and play an active role in our senior management team.
We have added protest leaders and aid workers to the list of communities covered by our Holistic Security Toolkit. The Toolkit is a curated library of essential resources for specific communities of at-risk civic actors. The third-party resources can be filtered by one or more of the following variables: Language (English, Spanish), Community (Women human rights defenders, LGBT+ activists, Environmental defenders, Freelance journalists, Protest leaders, Aid workers) or Domain (Safety and security, Digital security, Wellbeing and resilience).
Rights-based and humanitarian organisations must take risks to achieve change in the world. But in the face of attacks, harassment, and censorship, how do they take the right risks? Our new tool builds free security frameworks for at-risk civil society organisations in English and Spanish.
Due to the increased demand for our support from rights-based civil society organisations, collectives, and defenders in the global south, Open Briefing needs to expand its team of digital and information security consultants and trainers. You must have excellent written and spoken Spanish and English, and ideally be based in or from Latin America. You must have experience in the NGO sector, ideally with low-resource rights-based, environmental or humanitarian organisations or activists.
Following a major grant and growing demand, particularly from environmental defenders in the Amazon region, we are embarking on an exciting period of expansion. If you have experience in managing security risks for environmental campaigners, human rights defenders and other civic actors, speak fluent Portuguese and currently live in or are from Latin America, we want to hear from you.
Due to increased demand, we need to expand our team of experienced consultant counsellors who speak Arabic, Pashto and Dari or Farsi. You will be providing remote counselling to humanitarian aid workers and human rights defenders living and working in some of the most challenging environments worldwide. You need to be a qualified, experienced, accredited and insured counsellor with experience in the humanitarian or rights-based sectors.
We need to expand our team of consultant trainers in response to increased demand for online trainings on staff wellbeing. Working with clients of all sizes, from small human rights groups to global humanitarian agencies, our trainers take staff through a series of online trainings. You should be familiar with Psychological First Aid, comfortable designing and delivering online programmes, and ideally be a member of a relevant mental health accrediting body.
Open Briefing is launching three exciting new programmes: funded support, open resources, and collaboration and engagement. Together with our long-standing consultancy and training programme, these new programmes will help us achieve our mission to defend, strengthen and empower those on the frontlines of civil society.
