Organization: CIVICUS
Country: South Africa
Closing date: 19 Jul 2018

CIVICUS is a global alliance of civil society organisations and activists dedicated to strengthening citizen action and civil society throughout the world. Headquartered in Johannesburg, South Africa and with more than 4,000 member organisations and individuals in over 175 countries CIVICUS is committed to confronting the challenges that face humanity.

Given the scale of the current crackdowns on civic freedoms and the closing of civic space around the world from attacks on human rights defenders and civil society to deep social inequality and threats to democratic values the need for CIVICUS has sadly never been greater.

At such a critical time for civil society, shifting forms of participation are offering new, fluid spaces for citizens to find common ground across borders. CIVICUS is ideally positioned as an alliance and convenor to champion the cause of civil society as it finds solutions to those problems which existing governance mechanisms are failing to tackle.

Our current Secretary General has been highly successful and effective. CIVICUS finds itself currently in a position of strength. With strong donor relationships, a committed and diverse board, a broad and growing membership and a talented secretariat team, CIVICUS is poised to be bold and brave.

You will be an individual adept at leading through influence in a local, national or global network or membership-based organisation. You might be particularly experienced, accomplished and networked in your field, or you might be a young, dynamic and politically savvy leader. Either way, you will be able to inspire and connect with audiences and peoples of all kinds, from staff in the office to protesters on the street to Presidents. You will have excellent knowledge of the challenges and crises facing humanity, as well as civil society s efforts, strategies, and shortcomings in confronting them. You will value and understand the role of youth and the grassroots in social movements and important civil society issues. You will demonstrate great integrity in your work, alongside past evidence of implementing and embedding change in a civic or systems context and working constructively across sectors. You will think globally and across cultures, speak fluent English as well as ideally several other languages and having worked in different country contexts.
