WE ARE RECRUITING AN EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Overview

This is an exciting role leading a small but influential charity continuing the work of the late Jo Cox MP.  The Executive Director is responsible for overseeing the strategy, delivery and programmatic work of the charity, as well as ensuring that it is run efficiently and effectively.

Just as Jo did, we believe in working together with individuals and organisations that share the commitment to a fairer, kinder and more tolerant world. We are convinced that by working together effectively we are greater than the sum of our parts. We seek to amplify the voices of all those who believe that compassion, understanding and optimism are signs of strength and the basis for change.

This work has been taking place since September 2016. We harness the goodwill generated by Jo’s life to build partnerships and coalitions to deliver high impact projects and campaigns in her memory. We work on issues as diverse as loneliness, supporting and encouraging women in public life and the protection of civilians in conflict and the prevention of atrocity. Alongside these practical steps, the Foundation continues to celebrate Jo's life in the confident belief that her example can and will inspire others to be doers like Jo was.

Please send CV and covering letter to info@jocoxfoundation.org. Closing date for applications: Sunday 3rd June
