Founded in 2009, IHRB is the leading international think tank on business and human rights. IHRB’s mission is to shape policy, advance practice, and strengthen accountability in order to make respect for human rights part of everyday business.
The IHRB Deputy CEO plays a key role in shaping the direction and leadership of the organisation, collaborating closely with the Chief Executive Officer, the Chief Operating Officer and other team members. This position contributes to the strategic development of IHRB and its subsidiaries (currently IHRB Trading Ltd and Myanmar Centre for Responsible Business Ltd), and associated entities (currently CREER, IHRB USA and IHRB Nordic).
The Deputy CEO also provides oversight of monitoring and evaluation of programmes, contributes to good governance procedures, and manages certain day-to-day aspects of the organisation. The Deputy CEO will deliver on IHRB’s vision, mission and goals, motivating and supporting colleagues to do the same.
The Deputy CEO will also play a key role in representing IHRB externally, speaking on platforms, building strong relationships with funders and strategic partners, and deputising for the CEO when required. This will involve participation in some meetings outside of normal working hours to accommodate multiple time-zones. IHRB has always worked remotely (pre-pandemic) with a geographically dispersed team, and welcome applications regardless of location; candidates must however have easy access to international travel and be willing and able to represent IHRB in person across multiple continents when required.
