Director of Partnerships (maternity cover)

The deadline to apply for this position has now closed. We are currently reviewing applications and will be in touch with successful candidates regarding the next stage. We received a large number of applications for this position and so, unfortunately, will not be able to reply to individuals who have been unsuccessful.

We are recruiting for maternity leave cover for our Director of Partnerships. 

Salary: £62,000 per annum pro rata, with generous benefits including enhanced pension contribution and 25 days annual leave plus public holidays

Hours: 35 hours per week over five days

Contract type: fixed-term 8-month maternity cover. Expected start date: April 2022

You will report directly to our Executive Director. 

The role is advertised as “full-time”; however, we would be willing to consider flexible options including part-time hours. We may be prepared to consider a self-employed consultancy agreement or a secondment arrangement in certain circumstances.

Location: Central London, with some flexibility to work from home. Ideally, you should be within reasonable travelling distance of Good Law Project’s London office. The London office will be your contractual place of work.

About the role: We are looking for someone who can imagine a future in which discrete communities cohere around what they have in common and who also has the skills to bring that world closer. 

We want to extend our reach in civil society through forming, strengthening and diversifying partnerships and collaborations, all in service of our mission of using the law for a better world.  

We envisage partnering with organisations who work with communities or on issues in which we have a shared interest; who have particular operational strengths that Good Law Project lacks; or who deliver functions Good Law Project would like to promote, including around how the law can be used to catalyse the desire for a better world. 

About Good Law Project: Our mission is to achieve change through the law. We defend, define and change the law to protect the environment, uphold democracy, and ensure no one is left behind. We recognise the value of our employees, individually and collectively. We entrust our commitment and investment in their welfare. Together, we can make change happen.
