Purpose is a home for public mobilization and storytelling on the world's biggest issues. The world is changing and we need to change the way we think about changing the world. To do this, Purpose brings together world-class talent from the world of creatives, content development, storytelling, campaigning, grassroots organizing, and political strategy to build new creative campaigning models.

Guided by smart political strategy and powered by new technologies for participation, Purpose's work reframes issues, engages new audiences, shifts public discourse, and ultimately drives targeted action that shifts decision-makers and creates lasting impact.

Directors play a leadership role on Purpose's Strategy Team, leading international and domestic strategy projects, collaborating with its creative campaigning team, managing clients, proactively seeking out new ways to grow the organisation, and overseeing the development of the wider Strategy Team.

You should have approximately 10 years work experience, including several years managing multidisciplinary teams and complex projects, and serving as a lead representative with clients and stakeholders, including senior leadership of major foundations, NGOs, and corporations. Ideal candidates will have a strategy background from a leading consultancy/agency or non-profit advocacy organization, a demonstrated track record leading complex projects with multidisciplinary teams in a deadline-driven environment, strong client-facing and relationship-building experience, a high bar for quality and rigor in your own work as well as your colleagues', and you should have a demonstrated track record and/or interest in social sector organizing and advocacy.

Purpose is looking for team players with passion, a sharp mind, high integrity, a hands-on attitude, and an entrepreneurial, problem-solving spirit.
