About Humanitech

At Humanitech, a global think + do tank, we seek to shape the future for all humanity by harnessing the power of technology for good.

We progress humanitarian outcomes across three workstreams:

  1. Research & Insights: developing our own insights and evidence on the opportunities and risks frontier technologies present
  2. The Lab: developing solutions from concept through launch, working with a network of collaborators across sectors
  3. Advocacy & Influence: contributing to research, policy and practice on the humanitarian implications of technology through policy advocacy and stakeholder engagement

About the role

You will play a key leadership role in enabling Humanitech to achieve its objectives, with the focus on creating an inspired and engaged cross-sector community that champions ‘humanity first’ approaches to frontier technologies.

You will be responsible for the design and implementation of Humanitech’s community-building strategy, building Humanitech’s brand and distribution networks, and managing content, events, communications, and social media.

You will also lead our flagship Humanitech Summit, a virtual and in person conference bringing together leaders from the humanitarian, technology and government sectors.

Working closely with the Humanitech Leadership Team, this role works across Humanitech’s three workstreams to deliver strategic cross-functional projects and initiatives. You will play an integral part in the growth of Humanitech, by building and mobilising the Humanitech community.

  • High-level experience in applying project management frameworks that support cross-functional teams to deliver outcomes against agreed objectives (i.e. agile, human centred design)
