About us

Our vision is simple: we want a better world – where corruption is challenged and accountability prevails, all can thrive within the planet’s boundaries, and governments act in the public interest.

At Global Witness we investigate and campaign to stop human rights and environmental abuses caused by corruption and the exploitation of natural resources.

We’ve had our most successful year to date raising nearly $13 million and we’re now hiring a Development Manager to support us to raise even more next year.

About the role

As our Development Manager you’ll maximize revenue through effective identification and cultivation of prospects in North America to help us meet our ambitious fundraising targets.

You’ll contribute to delivering our annual U.S. individual fundraising targets, facilitating and securing income from our existing high value relationships.

To help us continue our critical and valuable work, you’ll identify and devise ways to develop new high value relationships to secure income for the future.

About you

You’ll be an experienced fundraiser who has a track record in navigating and developing relationships with high net worth individuals in the U.S.

You’ll be organised with an ability to prioritise to meet deadlines within a fast paced, creative and entrepreneurial environment.

As well as working with your development colleagues you’ll work with a broad range of stakeholders from our CEO in London to our policy advisors in the U.S. so it’s essential you’re a team player who is collaborative in approach.

We aim to be a diverse and inclusive place to work. We value new perspectives, original ideas and different ways of working. We believe that diverse views and experiences improve the way we do our work. We do our best to make our jobs accessible to all regardless of regardless of race, color, religious belief, gender identity or expression, national origin, sexual orientation, disability, age, military service, protected veteran status, or other groups as protected by law.
