Ten years ago, the idea of public registers of beneficial ownership was a campaigner’s long-shot. But now, with governments across the world committed to collecting and publishing information on the people who really own companies, OpenOwnership is making it a reality.

With backing from multiple funding agencies, including the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) and the World Bank, OpenOwnership is scaling its tools and support to increase beneficial ownership transparency globally, based on uptake of the Beneficial Ownership Data Standard and OpenOwnership Register. At this critical stage, we are recruiting a number of new roles to scale our work.

We are a distributed team, and are actively looking to diversify our geographical presence. We are a majority female team and strongly encourage other women and individuals from marginalized communities to apply.

For these applications we are using the platform Be Applied which is designed to promote diversity and inclusion through anonymized applications and screening questions. If you have any issues with the application process, please contact recruitment@openownership.org.
