Job Description

Fair Employment Foundation builds market solutions to end the forced labour of migrant workers in Asia.

Some of our initiatives are social businesses that generate revenue. Others are pioneering solutions and technologies that help workers and employers alike.

Since our set-up in 2014, we’ve:

• Saved 2,000 Filipino workers almost US$3million in recruitment fees via Fair Employment Agency - our non-profit social business based in Hong Kong

• Prepared 150 women for successful migration via Fair Training Center - our non-profit social business based in the Philippines

• Educated 750 employers at 27 companies, on how to fairly hire migrant domestic workers.

We are now ready to scale our solutions in Hong Kong, the Philippines and beyond, and we are looking for a talented and ambitious change-maker to join our growing leadership team.


As the Head of Development, you’ll secure resources to grow our social businesses and initiatives so we can achieve impact at scale. You’ll also ensure our work is delivering results, and you’ll work with our leaders in Hong Kong and the Philippines to communicate our direct and systemic impact to key stakeholders. Lastly, you’ll grow our employer education programme by building strategic partnerships and engaging employers as market influencers.

Objective 3: Influence businesses, employers and funders to support Fair Employment Foundation’s work by communicating our impact and results:

- Work with FEF leaders to collect impact data and communicate FEF’s results to key stakeholders (including local and international media).

- Work with the General Manager to build strategic partnerships with businesses, non-profits, governments, employment agencies and other key stakeholders, to further the mission of FEF and its solutions.
