The Rainforest Alliance is an international nonprofit organization working to build a future in which nature is protected and biodiversity flourishes, where farmers, workers, and communities prosper, and where sustainable land use and responsible business practices are the norm. We envision a world where people and nature thrive in harmony. In January 2018, the Rainforest Alliance merged with UTZ, a global program and label for sustainable farming.
The objective of the Global Theme Lead Forced Labor is to advise on forced labor and related labor issues to develop and implement policies, tools and systems to tackle these. It is the Global Theme Lead Forced Labor’s goal to support the organization in creating a world where farming communities, supportive governments and companies protect workers from work that is coercive and harmful. Vulnerable workers (e.g. women, migrants and temporary) should have access to training opportunities, grievance mechanisms and to decent work including good working conditions and fair recruitment. Farming families should be empowered to address poverty and (gender) inequality and safeguard natural resources for future generations. Vulnerable workers should be empowered to defend their labor rights.
Employment is based upon 32-40 hours/week for a period of 1 year. Preferred location is Amsterdam or New York City. This position is open to applicants of all nationalities, however, we can only consider candidates who have, may get or do not need a work and residency permit for the respective location.
