WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR

Launched in October 2018, VOW to End Child Marriage is an innovative new initiative that puts the power of the global wedding industry behind the worldwide movement to end child marriage. Every year, 12 million girls are married before the age of 18; some as young as 8 or 9. VOW believes that every girl has the right to a safe and healthy future, including the right to choose if, when and whom to marry.

VOW invites engaged couples, their guests and the wider public to make a difference for girls across the world. At the heart of our approach are partnerships with iconic wedding brands – including Crate and Barrel, The Knot, The Peninsula Hotels and others – that are engaging their customers in funding efforts to end child marriage.

As an essential role on the team, the Operations and Finance Lead will work directly with the Chief Executive Officer and others to support the day-to-day operations while leading the creation of scalable, flexible systems that will support the VOW team and the organization’s growth.
