The Commonwealth Equality Network (TCEN) is the first civil society network to sustainably advocate on behalf of LGBT+ people in the Commonwealth. Since its foundation in 2013, the network’s trajectory has been one of increasing profile, effectiveness, and influence: TCEN members have actively participated in Commonwealth spaces to raise the profile and mainstream the discussion of LGBT+ people and their rights and concerns, and to engage with national-level decision-makers and policymakers on these topics. The network currently comprises over 65 member organisations representing 47 Commonwealth countries drawn from all regions. Earlier this year, a new nine-member Management Committee was inaugurated. This Committee – with the support of the Secretariat and in consultation with the wider membership – will guide TCEN towards becoming an even more strategic, efficient and influential transnational group of LGBT+ human rights defenders and advocates.

This is an exciting opportunity for a committed, organised and dynamic individual to contribute to delivering the important work of the Secretariat of an ambitious, growing transnational network of LGBT+ civil society organisations.

This new, part-time position will be housed at Kaleidoscope Trust, in London, within a newly enlarged Secretariat team. The TCEN Secretariat Officer will report to the TCEN Secretariat Operations Manager and be part of a team led by a Head of TCEN Secretariat. All three Secretariat roles are funded through grants that Kaleidoscope Trust has secured to support and strengthen TCEN’s operations and implementation of its collective advocacy. The role will help administer and deliver a number of critical functions for the network. In particular, the TCEN Secretariat Officer will provide critical support to the Secretariat, the network’s Management Committee and its membership in the areas of network administration, governance, strategy, risk management, communications, regional engagement, member development and budget management.

Please note that applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis and this vacancy may close before the specified deadline.
