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.
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.
It is essential that our new advisory board is representative of the people that most need our support. Furthermore, we believe that when we join forces in our diversity, we can overcome the 'staleness' so often associated with boards, and instead spark creativity, excitement and momentum. So if you are an exceptional, senior leader from the human rights sector in the global south, we would love to hear from you!
Following a major core grant, we are embarking on an exciting period of expansion and institutional development. We are recruiting for a number of voluntary positions to join our advisory board. Whether you are an experienced board member or wanting to take your first step at board level, we want to hear from you.
Open Briefing wishes to recruit an interim fundraising manager for an immediate start. Reporting to the executive director, the consultant will be responsible for developing, managing and implementing a new fundraising programme. This will include developing income for core, programmes and projects from trusts and foundations and statutory funding as well as other sources, such as high-net-worth individuals, corporate sponsorship and crowdfunding.
