Are you an exceptional researcher and writer, interested in feminist economics and international advocacy?

The Bretton Woods Project is a watchdog and an advocate for change and looking for a new Gender Project Officer. The Project develops and maintains an information and evidence base that contributes to critical voices that seek to influence the World Bank and the IMF so that they support development policies that are gender transformative, equitable, environmentally sustainable and consistent with international human rights norms.

The Gender Equality and Macroeconomics (GEM) Project is an advocacy project of the Bretton Woods Project and is aimed at challenging the ways in which macroeconomic policies currently promoted by international financial institutions, in particular the IMF and World Bank, undermine gender equality. We are now recruiting a Gender Project Officer to play a key role in supporting this project.

The Gender Project Officer plays a key role in supporting this project by undertaking research and administration as well as reaching out to and supporting civil society partner organisations. The post holder will be given the chance to contribute to the strategic development of the project’s advocacy work. A key part of this role is to contribute to the writing of briefings and advocacy papers; therefore, the successful applicant must have proven experience of researching and writing these documents, aimed at several target audiences. The Gender Project Officer will support the GEM Project’s information sharing, outreach, publication outputs, coordination and advocacy with civil society partners.

The post holder will also support the project Bretton Woods Project team in a variety of administration and communication tasks.

If you are looking for a challenging and rewarding role within a small team, please apply. As we are hosted by ActionAid, please apply through the ActionAid recruitment portal.

Please note that interviews will be held on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd of August 2018. A remote participation option will be available for those unable to come to our London office.
