Executive Director

We are recruiting an Executive Director for UN Women UK, the national committee of UN Women in the UK. Working closely with the Board, UN Women HQ and leading a small, dedicated team in the UK – the new Executive Director (ED) will play a pivotal role at an exciting period of our growth and development.

We are poised for a step-change in our growth, focusing on achieving major milestones in fundraising to support women and girls in long-standing and new crisis areas across the world, at the same time as rolling out high impact  programmes such as Safe Spaces Now in the UK.

The last five years have seen us build a strong strategic platform and community. The next five years will see us realise the incredible potential we have to change the way the world works for women.

To apply please send a cover letter (no more than two pages) and a CV (no more than two pages) via link below. Please note that only applications received before the application deadline (25th January 2024) will be considered. Interviews will take place in London in early February.

We will inform applicants on the result at the end of the recruitment process. In the meantime, if you have questions about the recruitment process please email hr@unwomenuk.org. Please bear with our team in advance of that time, as we are a small charity with limited capacity.
