The World Diamond Council is searching for an executive director to head the industry group dedicated to eliminating conflict diamonds.
The executive director, the first salaried administrator in the group’s history, will have responsibility for the day-to-day management of the organization, including managing the budget, membership drives, providing strategic direction, liaising with government, stakeholders, and other organizations, and representing the WDC in the Kimberley Process and its committees.
The WDC is seeking an individual with a minimum of 10 to 15 years of administrative experience, with at least five years in a senior management position.
Experience with extractives, commodities, manufacturing, specialty goods, retail, or product supply chains would be an advantage, as would knowledge about corporate and social responsibility, voluntary commitments, the implementation of intergovernmental agreements, and the Kimberley Process, the organization said.
“It is a position that encompasses real challenge, and also one in which an individual can bring about positive change, both in the industry and in the lives of our stakeholders,” said Edward Asscher, WDC president, in a statement.
