Job opportunity - Office Administrator

The Sexual Rights Initiative (SRI) is a coalition of six national and regional organizations from all parts of the world with an office in Geneva, Switzerland that has been advocating for the advancement of human rights in relation to gender and sexuality in the UN human rights system since 2006.

The SRI aims to advance sexual rights (broadly defined) as a particular set of rights and as a crosscutting issue within international law, specifically in the work of the UN Human Rights Council and its mechanisms. The SRI’s approach to advocacy combines feminist analysis with important normative advances in the recognition of human rights of women, marginalized communities and young people.

The SRI’s Secretariat is housed in Action Canada for Sexual Health and Rights, based in Ottawa, Canada. Action Canada and the SRI Geneva team work closely together to administer the work and functions of the SRI.

The office administrator contributes to the smooth running of the SRI’s Office in Geneva by undertaking administrative tasks and ensuring the rest of the Geneva team has adequate support to work efficiently.

This is a part-time, fixed term contract. The position is for 3 days per week and for a 12- month period, with possibility of renewal. The position is based in the SRI office in Geneva and reports to the Manager of the SRI Geneva Office. Salary for this position is CHF 60,000 to CHF 70,000 per annum, pro-rated to part-time hours, and commensurate with experience. SRI also provides a generous benefits program, including extended health and dental, and pension contributions.
