JOB OFFERS: LGBTQ Organisation The Other Foundation is Hiring

[SUPPLIED] Everyone should be free to live a safe and dignified life, have a family and make their contribution to society. The Other Foundation works to change the views, practices and institutions that prevent people – because of who they are or who they love – from being able to do that in 13 countries in southern Africa. 

It gathers support for those who are working to protect and advance the human rights and social inclusion of homosexual and bisexual women and men, as well as transgender and intersex people – and gives support in a smart way that helps groups to work better for lasting change. It does this by working both as a fundraiser and a grant maker.

The Foundation is looking for a diverse selection of talented, self-motivated, innovative, highly skilled and well-networked southern African people of integrity with a can-do attitude, a commitment to excellence and a proven track record, to appoint to the following positions:
