Global Goals Programme Manager
The UN Global Compact Network UK is part of the United Nations Global Compact, the world’s largest responsible business initiative. We connect UK companies and other organisations to a global movement dedicated to driving sustainable growth. We promote practical sustainability leadership, share knowledge across sectors, and shape the business environment to create a world we want to live and do business in.
The UN Global Compact’s Ten Principles, rooted in UN treaties, provide a robust foundation from which we lead UK business action on the Global Goals, also called the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Our mission is to turn global momentum on sustainability into practical local action.
Our strategic plan has three pillars:
Inspiring business ambition to deliver the Global Goals
Enabling practical action for sustainable business growth
The UN Global Compact Network UK is recruiting a Programme Manager to lead its work on the Global Goals. This position is a great opportunity for individuals wanting to pursue a career in the field of corporate responsibility and sustainable development.
Please note that while this role is within the UN Global Compact Network UK Secretariat, the successful candidate will not be formally employed by the United Nations.
The Programme Manager will report directly to the Executive Director and will normally be supported by a Project Manager and a Project Coordinator/Intern.
Responsibilities include leading on the:
UK Global Goals Roadshow
Annual Global Goals flagship conference
Global Goals Working Group for Network members
Young SDG Innovators Programme
Global Goals Webinar Series
We are also open for new ideas!
The UN Global Compact Network UK has a very broad remit, but the Network Secretariat team is small, so the Global Goals Programme Manager may be required to support other activities from time to time.
A demonstrable knowledge of the Global Goals, the UN Global Compact, and the responsible business agenda more generally;
Experience of managing successful projects, including events;
Strong strategic thinking; ability to lead a small team; sound communication skills (both written and oral);
