Job opening: Global Network Development Lead

We are excited to advertise this opportunity to join the small team at Every Casualty Counts, as the new Global Network Development Lead. This is a really exciting time at the organisation, and you will be joining a new Executive Director and new Trustee Chair to take our impact to the next level.

Job Purpose

To develop, support and grow the Casualty Recorders Network – the primary global network for casualty recording organisations.

What We Offer

  • Salary: £40,000 (pro rata for three days a week)
  • Two-year fixed term contract, with the possibility of extension subject to funding. This is a key post for our team and you’ll be part of making the case for future funding.
  • There is a workplace pension to which ECC will also match your contribution up to 8% of salary.

Job Description

This role is key to supporting the people and organisations carrying out casualty recording in fragile and conflict-affected areas. There are three primary areas where this role can really develop this network:

  • grow the membership of the Casualty Recorders Network, including extending its geographical reach;
  • engage and support network members, including carrying out research and giving technical support; and
  • develop and deliver a coherent network strategy and communications approach.

About You

We’re looking for a great person to join our small, friendly team. Here’s an idea of what we’re looking for: 

  • Someone with a track record of building networks, ideally in the area of human rights, humanitarian aid, international development or peace-building.
  • You’ll be a keen connector and proactive in finding ways to bring people together to share their expertise and support each other.
  • A person with strong project management skills. You’ll be self-motivated with strong organisational skills and the ability to work independently.
  • You will bring strong research skills and the ability to deliver robust research outputs which are communicated really well.

How We Work

At ECC we aim to be a brilliant place to work. Even before the coronavirus pandemic hit, we were a ‘remote-first’ organisation – collaborating online and using the tools we need to produce brilliant work. This means that you will be home-based.  

This role is advertised at three days a week. We encourage a work-life fit for everyone who works at ECC and are really open to arrangements which work for your life and our team.

We are well-connected and look for opportunities to come together face-to-face as a small team and for our Trustee Board meetings so there will be occasional travel – likely to London – for these meetings. But you don’t need to live in-and-around London.

How To Apply

Please apply by email to with a two-page covering note setting out how you meet the Person Specification, alongside a CV detailing your work background and experience. Please note that you must have the existing right to work in the UK.

We encourage and welcome applications from people of all backgrounds, especially from groups under-represented in the INGO sector.

The deadline for applications is 10:00pm on Monday, 19 July 2021. Interviews will be held over Wednesday 28 July and Thursday 29 July (via Zoom).

Given our limited capacity, if you have not heard from us by Friday, 23 July then please assume you have not been successful this time.
