Managing Director: Campaigns

Website stopcorpabuse Corporate Accountability

Join the Global Campaign

In our 40 year track record, Corporate Accountability has worked in deep partnership with organizers and activists from around the world to run powerful corporate campaigns.  From exposing the abuses of the private water industry in partnership with allies on the ground in Lagos, Nigeria to Flint, Michigan, to standing up to tobacco transnationals for promoting and profiting off of a product that continues to put the health of millions at risk, our long-term strategic campaigns have successfully put people power over profits.

Sound exciting? Well that’s where you come in! We are looking for a Managing Director of the organization, focusing on our campaign work, to ensure we have the biggest possible impact, are rooted in values of equity and justice, and are set up for success in the future. You will be an executive leader within the organization, working alongside our Executive Director and two other Managing Directors. Holding the whole of our campaigns work, you will manage an experienced and diverse team of corporate campaigners, providing strategic direction and management towards campaign success and impact.

Rooted in your experience working in equitable partnership with Global South, frontline, and grassroots communities—and grounded in cultural humility, you will partner with our campaign leadership and teams in the U.S., Latin America, and Africa to directly take on some of the most destructive industries on the planet, building power and leadership for the broader corporate accountability movement. Additionally, you will hold key relationships with allies, thought leaders, and key members of the media, advancing our messaging across platforms.  The results of your collective work to dismantle and disrupt the corporate status quo—from the halls of the U.N. to acting in solidarity with communities on the frontlines—will move us toward a world free of corporate abuse, where all people can thrive.

Who you are

  • The rampant abuses of corporations and the outrageous amount of power they have make you mad as hell — and you have experience working on campaigns that directly challenge corporate power and abuse.
  • You have a commitment to advancing racial equity and ending systems of oppression, and are ready to do this in your day-to-day work. You understand that campaigning for justice must include working to dismantle white supremacy, institutional racism, legacies of colonialism, and anti-Blackness.
  • You are a great staff manager, bringing over 5+ years of experience in staff management to the role. You bring out the best in your team and manage staff towards their goals drawing from your experience in designing effective work plans based on available capacity. You also know how to establish structure and clarity of roles and responsibilities within your team, ensuring organizational capacities align with team success. And you have demonstrated attention to cultural humility, successfully working with people from a wide range of backgrounds, geographies, and cultural contexts.
  • You know what it takes to manage from a place of senior leadership. Simply put, you know how to effectively bridge the gap between your team’s work and success and how that adds up to supporting the overall priorities of the organization. And you know that managing an organization also means navigating changing conditions with grace, making hard decisions, and having hard conversations—and the best way to do so is with openness, fairness, and input from others.
  • You know that achieving any goal requires a well-considered plan with a timeline. And you’ve got the skills to create plans that are highly efficient, strategic, and creative. You know how to take into consideration the context (political, organizational, etc.) and people involved, and work with what’s available to create the best plan possible. But you don’t keep this valuable skill to yourself: you also have significant experience in supporting others to create plans and processes toward achieving goals, and have a clear sense of how processes and tactics add up to impact.
  • You’re a skilled facilitator. You can guide a group of diverse participants through a conversation or process that builds on shared goals and works toward strategic outcomes. Drawing from experience in conflict resolution, you know how to navigate and interrupt power dynamics so all participants can engage meaningfully.
  • You have 10+ years of experience in organizing, and a significant portion of that experience is in corporate campaigning. You also have experience overseeing program budgets and in fundraising for a program. Additional experience in building grassroots people power, organizing, and training is preferred, as well as prior experience working in media.

What you’ll be responsible for in the day-to-day

  • In partnership with our Executive Director and two Managing Directors, you will lead and strategize at the organizational management level.
  • Manage and oversee seasoned campaigners on our Climate, Water, and Tobacco campaigns toward high-functioning and aligned corporate campaigning, grounded in our anti-racist values and commitments, through strategic guidance, progress assessment, feedback loops, and troubleshooting as needed.
  • Work to build trust, cohesion, and alignment between your staff/team and the organization’s leadership through developing and strengthening internal coordination systems as well as overseeing strong coordination between the campaigns, research, development, and communications teams.
  • Work in close coordination with our communications team to ensure our corporate campaigns integrate and implement communications campaign strategies and tactics.
  • Manage relationships with key funders and partner with fundraisers to ensure they have what they need, including external messaging on campaign plans and strategy.
  • Support team leaders to build a shared understanding of organizational priorities and budgets, providing support across programs you oversee to manage program budgets, while maximizing their strategic impact. Additionally, play a lead role in our annual organizational planning process and ensure campaign plans and goals align behind our annual organizational plans and budgets, mission, and vision.
  • Build and hold relationships with organizational allies to develop and seize opportunities to build international visibility and solidarity for Corporate Accountability’s campaigns and stand in solidarity with frontline justice struggles around the world.
  • Facilitate strategic planning meetings, and support campaigns staff as they do so, in partnership with our allies—keeping an eye towards racial equity, and ensuring we have the long-term and short-term vision, strategy, goals, and plans to advance an integrated campaigns agenda.
  • Represent the organization at ally convenings, campaign events, coalition spaces, and as an organizational spokesperson in the media.
  • Travel 2 – 4 times each year to represent Corporate Accountability at events such as international treaty meetings or national campaigns events. We will continue to be mindful of global health concerns and continue to center the health and safety of our staff in travel decisions.
  • Actively participate in organization-wide planning, fundraising, racial equity work, recruitment, and campaign activities.

Salary and benefits:

  • Salary range: $100,535 – $128,715 in alignment with recent updates to our salary and compensation protocols.
  • Hours: Corporate Accountability’s full-time staff generally work 32 hours per week, with periods of more intensive work that correspond with the ebb and flow nature of campaigns or projects throughout the year. Our core hours are 10 am – 4 pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, with flexibility to determine your remaining hours of the week in coordination with your supervisor and team. Given the nature of campaigning, rapid response moments, and working with organizers and activists at an international organization, there will be instances where you would need to be available outside of standard business hours.
  • Our comprehensive benefit package includes: health insurance (with 90% of the premium for all tiers covered by the organization) and dental coverage (with 100% of the individual premium covered by the organization and the option to add dependents at an additional cost); $40/month home office stipend with $250 provided at the time of hire to go towards setting up a home office; FSA for transit, health care, and dependent care; and 401(k) with employer match.
  • Generous time off policies including one month of personal vacation time, one week of office closure for collective rest, holidays, and unlimited wellness days to prioritize health.
  • Both internal and external training and leadership development opportunities.
  • Energetic, collaborative, and social campaign environment.
