Ready to take on some of the most powerful forces in our society? We’re looking for a senior international policy organizer to join our fierce, smart team challenging global corporations the governments that do their bidding, holding them accountable, and creating a world where all people can thrive.
Why you’ll love coming to work every day
You’ll help change the world. We’re not kidding. You’ll be joining a team that’s not satisfied with the world as it is -- and has a vision for how it should be. Add a 40-year track record of winning campaigns and ambitious plans to win even bigger, and you’ve got a powerful force to be reckoned with.
You’ll work with awesome people. Join a team of seasoned, kind, determined, optimistic, and solutions-oriented folks. We work hard, celebrate victories large and small, and always have each other’s backs.
You’ll be a part of fearless and winning campaigns. When you’re in the business of ending corporate abuses, you can’t be afraid to name names and stand your ground. For 40 years, we’ve been exposing and challenging the abuses of the likes of Nestlé, Exxon Mobil, Philip Morris International, McDonald’s, Dow Chemical, and more. We don’t back down, and we run campaigns until we win.
You can take on big responsibilities as you go. You’ll thrive here if you actively take on more as you learn and grow. We pay lots of attention to building staff leadership, and we provide support and training to help you be the best you can be.
You’ll be part of an organization committed to advancing racial equity and transforming systems of oppression. We are deeply committed to prioritizing the leadership of those who bear the brunt of corporate abuse: women, people of color, low-income people, people in the Global South, and LGBTQ folks around the world. Our unique culture has been fostered by a long history of women at the helm. We know we are stronger when the organization reflects the vision of the world we’re building together.
What you’ll do
Transnational corporations have global power: Just look at how Big Polluters have obstructed climate justice for decades, borrowing tactics directly from Big Tobacco’s deadly playbook. But global institutions like the U.N. can rein in corporate abuse. And Corporate Accountability is rare for our combination of both the policy and organizing expertise to help ensure they do so.
That’s where our international policy team comes in: You’ll be part of the smart, dynamic crew that advances groundbreaking policies to curb corporate power globally. Your job will be to organize people from around the world, from activists to experts to policymakers. Together, you’ll secure precedent-setting policies that advance climate justice, stop corporate abuse of human rights, protect the human right to water, and rein in Big Tobacco. And you’ll be conducting the policy research and analysis necessary to help policymakers and advocates alike.
You’ll work with a powerhouse team of organizers, researchers, and policy experts from across our four campaign areas. You’ll be drawing on -- and building -- Corporate Accountability’s deep, decades-long relationships with people and institutions around the world. You’ll partner with grassroots movement leaders in the Global South, U.N. bodies like the World Health Organization, government officials, academic experts, and more to make impossible wins possible. And you’ll be advancing policies that break new ground in the movement to make corporations answer to people, not the other way around.
