The Rainforest Alliance is creating a more sustainable world by using social and market forces to protect nature and improve the lives of farmers and forest communities. To achieve our mission, we partner with diverse allies around the world to drive positive change across global supply chains and in many of our most critically important natural landscapes.
Our alliance spans 70 countries and includes farmers and forest communities, companies, governments, civil society, and millions of individuals. Together we work to protect forests and biodiversity, take action on climate, and promote the rights and improve the livelihoods of rural people.
As an international nonprofit organization with more than 30 years of experience in sustainability transformation, we understand that the social and economic well-being of rural communities is tightly connected to ecosystem health. This knowledge has shaped our rigorous programs to advance sustainable land-use and commodity production.
At the Rainforest Alliance we combat climate change, protect forests and biodiversity, promote human rights, and improve livelihoods. The enormity of the social and environmental challenges we are facing requires working together in a broad alliance. This is why we bring farmers, forest communities, companies, and consumers together to change the way the world produces, sources, and consumes.
To protect nature and ensure protection of human rights, it is becoming increasingly urgent that we use our land and produce food in more sustainable ways. For this to succeed we need to fundamentally change the way that businesses operate and source, and the choices we all make as consumers.
Our growing global alliance aims to transform our relationship with our natural resources and each other, to create a better future for people and nature together.
The Rainforest Alliance encourages diversity and inclusion across the global organization. With this commitment to diversity, we are proud to be an equal opportunity employer and do not discriminate on the basis of gender, race, color, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, ages, disability and any other protected group.
The Rainforest Alliance’s Livelihoods and Human Rights team seeks a collaborative and results-oriented Human Rights Senior Officer with experience working on human rights and/or gender issues in agricultural supply chains and landscapes with a keen interest in gender and human rights. This is a global role, supporting colleagues and teams around the world on implementing our global human rights strategic vision, including certification, donor funded programs and programs with companies. The position requires strong skills in proposal development and project coordination, and entails research, drafting documents, presentations, and training materials; data analysis, and engaging with partners inside and outside the organization. The Senior Officer will grow toward increasing levels of responsibility and leadership on these topics. This is not a supervisory position. We are looking for a Senior Officer, based in Latin America or Africa (excluding Kenya). In the application form, you’ll find more information on the countries where we are located and able to hire.
Commensurate with experience.
