About the Organisation:

Traidcraft Exchange exists to support people to harness the benefits of trade; and to fight against injustice in global trade.

It works with partners in South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa, running programmes to support people working in different supply chains. Traidcraft's long experience in this area has meant it has a good understanding of how trade can lead to sustainable development and poverty eradication.

About the Role:

Traidcraft Exchange is looking for an exceptional Head of Policy and Advocacy who wants to make a real difference to the way trade works, and who will build on its excellent reputation and ability to punch above its organisational weight.

You will be a dynamic leader with a track record of successful advocacy work and the knowledge and expertise to navigate the emerging political landscape. You will be able to represent Traidcraft Exchange powerfully in external forums, work in partnership with allies and provide strategic internal leadership, as well as managing a small team of policy advisors.
