Water Witness works at the frontline of the global water crisis to shine a light on its impacts, to understand its root causes and to activate an effective and lasting response. Our ambitious 2030 Strategy sets out five imperatives for a water secure future: accountable governance, progressive financing, redefining corporate responsibility, confronting climate change and activating people power.

This is new and exciting position will lead the design and delivery of global investigations, research, and advocacy to end the abuse of water - and the communities and ecosystems which depend on water - in our globalised supply chains.

They will be responsible for rigorous research, documentation, and analysis of the water impacts (pollution, depletion, degradation, conflicts, inadequate WASH access, exacerbation of droughts and floods) caused by the production of food, clothing, and consumer goods.

Working with our civil society partners in Africa, Asia and South America they will generate the chain of evidence needed to hold corporations, investors and governments to account for responsible water use, and will stimulate media attention, citizen demand and political will for water justice in both the global north and south. We are particularly keen to recruit a future global leader in the struggle for a more sustainable and just world, and are committed to developing the post holder to help realise their full potential.
