Job Summary

The Clooney Foundation for Justice (CFJ), an international non-governmental organization (NGO) that advocates for justice through accountability for human rights abuses around the world, seeks a Director of Development. A seasoned development professional will be a critical addition to our dynamic team during this exciting time of organizational growth. The ideal candidate will have outstanding written and oral communications skills and be creative, self-motivated, and flexible. They will help shape our fundraising strategy, engage regularly with donors and donor prospects, and prepare grant proposals and other associated written communications. They will be expected to identify new donor opportunities, integrate effective monitoring and evaluation (M&E) techniques into proposals and reports, and prepare packages of materials, in addition to playing a key coordinating role in annual fundraising events. They will support development efforts on behalf of CFJ generally as well as each of its flagship initiatives – TrialWatch, The Docket, and a new gender justice initiative launching in 2022 – and in concert with its strategic partner, The Sentry.

TrialWatch has the mission of exposing injustice, helping to free those unjustly detained, and promoting the rule of law around the world. TrialWatch monitors criminal trials globally against those who are most vulnerable – including journalists, protesters, women, LGBTQ+ persons, and minorities – and advocates for freedom for those who are unjustly detained. Over time, TrialWatch will use the data it gathers to publish a Global Justice Ranking exposing countries’ performance and use it to support advocacy for systemic reform.

The Docket gathers evidence of international crimes to trigger prosecutions of perpetrators and support victims in their pursuit of justice. This initiative combines investigations, legal action, and advocacy to bring the perpetrators to justice, obtain redress for survivors, and achieve systemic change. Its projects include bringing to justice those involved in financing conflicts through looting and illegal trade in antiquities, and gathering evidence of crimes against humanity committed in Venezuela.

Waging Justice for Women is a new, soon-to-be-launched, initiative that combats oppressive laws used against women and girls, initially in Africa. The team will gather data to identify discriminatory laws and undertake strategic litigation with local partners to overturn unfair laws, provide remedies to victims, and trigger accountability against perpetrators.

The Sentry, CFJ’s strategic partner, works with governments and global banks to create real financial consequences for officials responsible for massive human rights crimes and commercial actors profiting from those crimes. The Sentry provides governments the evidence they need to take targeted action against corruption, violence, and serious human rights abuses, and advocate more comprehensive policies focused on getting at the root causes of crises. Their investigations have exposed fraud, money laundering, corruption, illicit trafficking, bribery, piracy, terror financing, poaching, and more. (The Sentry has its own fundraising team and is a separate 501(c)(3).)
