The Bretton Woods Project is looking for a Project Officer to support the Bretton Woods Project team in monitoring the work of the IMF, supporting critical civil society communities, and advocating for transformational change.
The Bretton Woods Project is an ActionAid-hosted project that acts as a critical civil society watchdog of the IMF and the World Bank. By monitoring the work of these institutions, supporting and connecting critical civil society communities, and advocating for transformational change, we aim to challenge their power and contribute to the development of policies that are gender transformative, equitable, environmentally sustainable and consistent with international human rights norms, with international institutions that are democratic, inclusive, transparent, accountable, and responsive to citizens, especially the poorest and most vulnerable.
As Project Officer, your work will primarily focus on the IMF and supporting the Bretton Woods Project team more widely. This involves directly engaging with senior-level IMF officials and staff to further advocacy targets, coordinating with and representing BWP in key civil society communities, and producing high-quality advocacy outputs.
You will also be monitoring key developments at the IMF and contributing to team-wide communications outputs such as the Bretton Woods Observer, Dispatch, and Newslens, and to the institutional strengthening of the Bretton Woods Project.
The successful candidate will have a strong understanding of economic justice issues as they relate to international financial architecture, be familiar with the IMF’s key activities and have a strong grasp on common criticisms of the IMF and World Bank.
You will have experience of interacting with policymakers in a political environment and in producing high-quality written policy outputs relating to international economic justice issues.
Please note that this is a fixed term contract role until 31 September 2021.
