Are you an experienced gender equality advocate, with an in-depth understanding of feminist economics, women’s rights and gender equality issues?

The Bretton Woods Project is looking for a new Gender Equality and Macroeconomics Project Lead. As a watchdog organisation advocating for change, the Bretton Woods Project develops and maintains an information and evidence base that contributes to critical voices that seek to influence the World Bank and the IMF. It seeks to 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 women’s rights and gender equality.

We are now recruiting a GEM Project Lead to manage all aspects of the project in coordination and cooperation with GEM Project partner organisations. The GEM Project Lead will be responsible for the delivery of quality and timely project outputs in accordance with donor agreements, especially focusing on overall coordination, IMF-targeted advocacy and strategic planning, to bring about sustainable, transformative change. The role includes representing the GEM Project and BWP in engagements with senior-level government and international financial institutions officials, and a wide variety of civil society partners. The role also requires line and budget management.

The post holder will also support the Bretton Woods Project team in a variety of administrative and communications tasks, including contributing to BWP’s quarterly publication, the Observer, and its coverage on the World Bank and IMF Annual and Spring Meetings, the Dispatch.

As we are hosted by ActionAid UK, please apply through the ActionAid recruitment portal by 4 August 2021.

Please note that virtual interviews will be held from the second week of August 2021.
