Consumers International brings together over 200 member organisations in more than 100 countries to empower and champion the rights of consumers everywhere. It believes in a world where everyone has access to safe and sustainable goods and services.
We are all consumers. From the obvious necessities we purchase daily, to how we connect with the world using mobile phones or what we eat. We consume every day and in every part of our lives. At Consumers International, our core belief is that all people have a right to access safe goods and quality services, to be treated fairly and offered effective solutions if things go wrong.
Highly Competitive Salary
It is an exciting time at Consumers International with the development of a new strategy to ensure greater impact and relevance for the organisation. The new strategy aims to bring together a broader network from civil society, business and government who can deliver positive outcomes for consumers. Strong foundations are laid to get this strategy off the ground with sponsorship by new partners of concept-proving work already in place and underway. Â 2019 will be an exciting year for Consumers International as the first G20 Consumer Summit aimed at putting the consumer at the heart of digital development takes place in the Spring.
We are now seeking an inspirational and influential Director-General with experience of international advocacy and a track of creating sustainable operating models by building partnerships with governments, businesses, civil society, private foundations and NGO's that are impact and revenue driven. An understanding of the consumer movement and the impact of the digital economy on consumers would also be beneficial. Critical to your success will be your experience of working in a cross-cultural environment and your genuine passion to deliver a safer, fairer, more sustainable world for consumers.
