Global Network Officer (Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity)

London School of Economics and Political Science - International Inequalities Institute

The Global Network Officer will be responsible for developing and delivering a global engagement and network strategy directed towards life-long Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity (AFSEE). The post-holder will apply creativity and imagination in animating a dynamic, global network of Atlantic Fellows, ensuring that the network enriches the capacities and impact of Atlantic Fellows, particularly in their continued evolution as global social change leaders at the forefront of challenging inequalities. The aim of the role is to cultivate a vibrant Atlantic Fellows community that continues to grow and thrive beyond the completion of the initial Fellowship experience, ensuring that Fellows remain connected with each other and the International Inequalities Institute (III) and develop links with new cohorts of Fellows.

The Atlantic Fellows programme, housed within the III has been awarded £64 million from Atlantic Philanthropies to host 600 Fellows over the next 20 years. Atlantic Fellows are deeply committed to fighting inequalities, with a particular concern to share experiences from different parts of the world, especially the global south. Delivered with academic nodes in Africa, South America and Asia as well as non-academic collaborating partners, the Atlantic Fellows programme includes diverse routes, involving MSc scholarships with additional leadership training; an innovative non-residential route for Fellows involving short courses and project work; and structured visiting Fellowship positions. The AFSEE programme comprises one of six ground-breaking Atlantic Fellowship programmes which focus on racial, health and social equity through a range of engagements around the world, supported by the Narrative Initiative and the Atlantic Institute. Together, we are dedicated to empowering a community of emerging leaders working to advance just and equitable societies

We are looking for a driven and inspiring individual with experience in building meaningful relationships across global networks, particularly at the intersection of social movements, civil society and academia. Ideally, you will have a strong understanding of global inequalities, of trajectories for social change and be attuned to the needs of leaders who are working to bring about a more equitable and just world. You will have experience in designing intellectually stimulating and transformative experiences that transcend a range of disciplines, allow for horizontal learning and peer-to-peer exchange and that connect to practical outcomes.

We offer an occupational pension scheme, generous annual leave and excellent training and development opportunities.
