Vacancy: Executive Director of BASIC

Applications are invited for a full-time indefinite Executive Director for BASIC (British American Security Information Council).

Applications are particularly welcome from female candidates, those from a minority ethnic background, and other groups that are currently underrepresented within the organisation.

The successful candidate will be joining an independent think tank and registered charity promoting innovative ideas and international dialogue on nuclear disarmament, arms control, and nonproliferation. Since 1987, we’ve been at the forefront of global efforts to build trust and cooperation on some of the world’s most progressive global peace and security initiatives, advising governments in the United Kingdom, United States, Europe, the Middle East and Russia. Through an approach based on active listening, understanding and empathy, BASIC builds bridges across divides to transform some of the world’s most dangerous nuclear stalemates and lay new pathways to global security. We engage diverse perspectives, encourage empathy across states, and broaden the context of debate. We have an established reputation for non-partisan, non-judgemental, cross-cultural engagement and for seeking common ground.

The successful candidate will have a demonstrable track record of delivering high-quality organisational leadership, undertaking and disseminating research on international security and nuclear weapons issues, and proven fundraising to support research and policy work.

For an informal and confidential discussion about this opportunity, please contact Dr Heather Williams, BASIC Co-Chair [[email protected]]
