Job Details


The Natural Resource Governance Institute is seeking applications and nominations for the position of Director of Human Resources.

Countries that are rich in oil, gas, and mineral wealth face one of the most critical development challenges of this generation. When used well, these resources can create greater prosperity for current and future generations; used poorly, or squandered, they can cause economic instability, social conflict, and lasting environmental damage. The Natural Resource Governance Institute (NRGI)'s mission – and passion – is to capitalize on these opportunities and surmount the challenges that more than one billion people in resource rich countries face.

NRGI is a high-impact, international non-governmental organization dedicated to helping communities and nations benefit from their countries' endowments of oil, gas, and minerals. With a global reach across more than twenty countries, NRGI uses research, data and analysis as the evidence base for our training, technical assistance, grant-making, brokering dialogue and convening change actors. NRGI partners with global as well as national influencers and leaders within governments, non-governmental organizations, media, legislatures, the private sector, and international institutions to increase accountable and effective governance.

The NRGI team is driven by its commitment to effect change in the communities most impacted by the extraction of natural resources. The highly skilled staff is motivated by the urgency of the issues being addressed and brings enthusiasm to its work on complex international challenges. Humility, patience, and collaboration are all core components of the NRGI work culture.
