The Senior Advisor will play a leading role in building support and influencing policy to develop and deliver Lumos’ global voluntourism, anti-trafficking and modern slavery strategy. Working closely with the Global Advocacy Director you will seek commitments and deliver policy change to redirect resources currently going to institutions, to family and community based services. Stakeholders will include a range of state and non-state actors including the EU and UN agencies, faith-based organisations, private foundations and corporates.
Through targeted strategies, including the delivery and dissemination of thought leadership, guidance on divesting from the ‘orphanage business’, behavioural change campaigns and supporting the development of pilot interventions in countries, you will build relationships at the highest level to create a network of advocates to inspire, influence and achieve real change to end the institutionalisation of children by 2050.
With an entrepreneurial mind-set and demonstrable knowledge of the relationships and legal frameworks between orphanages, volunteering, trafficking and modern slavery, you will have substantial experience of advocating and campaigning for international change and a deep contextual understanding of the mechanics of successfully influencing change with individual stakeholders, as well as large organisations, such as the EU or UN.
