United Nations University Centre for Policy Research is looking for an Operations Manager for Finance Against Slavery and Trafficking to provide logistical support related to project administration, human resources, and finance. This is a newly created position as part of this growing project.
The FAST initiative was launched in mid-2018 as a public-private partnership in response to calls from the G7, the G20 and the United Nations General Assembly to mobilize the private sector in the fight against modern slavery and human trafficking. In under two years, the initiative has already had substantial impact, having trained thousands of financial sector professionals in more than 130 countries, mobilized institutional investors with more than USD 8 trillion assets under management to tackle modern slavery and human trafficking, developed risk analysis tools for the sector, and provided input into a range of multilateral and regulatory policy processes. It has also organized a coalition of banks and survivor support organizations to provide survivors with improved access to financial services. Owing to the generous support of FAST donors, the project has been extended by a further three years and is successfully poised for growth.
