If you want to challenge yourself, work hard and make a real difference in the world, we might just have the role for you!
The PWYP Secretariat is looking for a proactive and adaptable individual with strong communication, relationship building and administrative skills to join our team as the Executive Assistant/Team Administrator of the PWYP Secretariat. This role sits at the very heart of the Publish What You Pay (PWYP) Secretariat and is involved in all areas of the organisation's work. Working closely with the Operations Manager, this role is responsible for the effective operations of the organisation by supporting the Executive Director, Senior Management Team, and PWYP’s legally constituted governing bodies: the Global Council, PWYP EU Board, and PWYP UK Board. Furthermore this role will provide administrative support to the wider secretariat team.
Publish What You Pay (PWYP) is the world’s largest network of civil society organisations working to promote transparency, citizen participation and accountability in the oil, gas and mining sectors. We work with communities in more than 50 countries, to ensure that the revenues generated by natural resource exploitation benefit all citizens, rather than a small elite.
PWYP was established more than fifteen years ago and we have come a long way. From a handful of organisations in 2002, the network has grown to include more than 1,000 civil society member organisations across the world. PWYP was instrumental in the founding of the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative, the first global standard for good natural resource governance. Our advocacy has led to milestones in accountability, such as legislation that requires major extractive companies like BP and Total to publish what they pay to governments for their natural resources. Combined, these successes have led to billions of dollars of extractive revenues to be publicly disclosed, a level of transparency that seemed unachievable just a few years ago.
We are a growing, fun and dynamic team spread across seven countries and we work with some of the most courageous anti-corruption and human rights activists in the world. We offer an amazing working environment with a focus on personal development.
