Current vacancies


Director of Free Tibet and Tibet Watch

Free Tibet is a leading human rights organisation campaigning for an end to China’s occupation of Tibet and for international recognition of Tibetans’ right to freedom. Our vision is a free Tibet in which Tibetans are able to determine their own future and the human rights of all are respected. Funded entirely by our supporters across the world, we mobilise active support for the Tibetan cause, champion human rights and challenge those who sustain the occupation. Free Tibet works closely with its research partner, Tibet Watch, to securely obtain, verify and distribute information and news from inside Tibet. Tibet Watch is a UK registered charity, set up in 2006.

The Executive Committee of Free Tibet and trustees of Tibet Watch are looking for an outstanding individual to lead the two organisations through a new phase of growth and development.

The new Director will be a dynamic individual capable of providing strategic and operational leadership as well as excellent communication skills and financial acumen. S/he will report to the Board of Trustees and be responsible for all aspects of the overall strategy, planning, resourcing and operational performance of both Free Tibet and Tibet Watch. A key component of the role will be representing the organisations and their work externally with key stakeholders. The postholder will also grow a strong internal organisational culture, working collaboratively with the boards of Free Tibet and Tibet Watch, to motivate and lead the team.

The successful candidate will be a creative thinker with a strong sense of integrity and a values-driven approach. It is not necessary to have already led an organisation, but the successful candidate will have a proven track record in building and leading a team within the voluntary sector. S/he will also be able to demonstrate sound relationship management skills, a strong understanding of fundraising, outstanding interpersonal and communication skills and a passion for the mission of Free Tibet and Tibet Watch.

This is a full-time role, based at our London office, although flexible working and some working from home will be possible once the right candidate is established in the role.

To apply, please send your CV and covering letter to, explaining how your skills and experience to date match those set out in the skills criteria section of the Job Description. Please ensure that each document is a maximum of two sides of A4.

Closing date: 9:00am, 2nd January 2020
