Head of Just Transitions to the Green Economy


As the world transitions out of carbon-intensive industries and into green economies, IHRB’s new Just Transitions programme seeks to contribute to a wider understanding of how companies and industries can responsibly transition in ways that respect the rights of the workers and communities most affected. IHRB is recruiting a Programme Head to lead the development of our research, policy, communications, and pilot projects on these issues.

We are seeking a candidate with a deep understanding of how companies, governments and others can work together to ensure the voices, concerns, and rights of impacted individuals and communities feed directly into policymaking and action related to climate change at every level.

The international human rights framework is critical to achieving just transitions that safeguard the rights of affected workers and communities while achieving climate-driven industrial and business change. IHRB’s experience and track record to date demonstrates the value of collective action approaches to systemic challenges, and the purpose of this role is to catalyse a global community of practice to build evidence and action around the most effective approaches to achieving a net-zero future in a rights-based way.

If you have a strong track record of leadership and delivery of policy outputs via collaborative projects, underpinned by a sound communications strategy, then this is the role for you.
