Position description

Transparentem is a discreet, non-profit unit that illuminates supply chains and spurs eradication of human and environmental abuses. We use frontline investigative reporting and forensic methods in compliance with international ethical standards.  A public service initiative, Transparentem is a sentinel, not a saboteur, to industries at inflection points. We believe that securing and improving the lives and environments of workers at all tiers of off-shored industry must start with independent, methodical inquiry.

We are seeking a Senior Labor Analyst to join our investigative team, which works to develop detailed, fact-based reports tracing human trafficking, child labor, worker abuses, and environmental degradation throughout manufacturing supply chains.

Our analysts shape Transparentem’s investigations and gather information. They work with field investigators to scope investigations and gather primary evidence, and draw from a broad network of public and private sources including: pay-walled databases, shipping records, foreign media, and auditor/regulator reports. This role requires some travel to train field teams and assist in supervising investigations.

The Senior Labor Analyst will report to the Deputy Director of Investigations.


What We’re Looking For:

This is a challenging role that requires total discretion, as well as strong investigative, analytical, and organizational skills. We are looking for individuals with:

  • 3+ years of experience in an investigative, and/or analytical role
  • 5+ years of experience working on human trafficking and/or labor issues
  • Experience in supply chain tracking and analysis (through shipping records, bills of lading, data bases, industry sources, etc.)
  • Experience in requesting and obtaining public records, preferably both within in the U.S. and internationally
  • Experience in developing sources on a range of subjects
  • A quiet, disciplined approach to sensitive information and rigorous protection of vulnerable sources
  • A track record of sharp, concise writing
  • Extraordinary attention to detail
  • Comfort with ambiguity and the ability to work autonomously
  • Strong sense of collegiality and flexible working style
  • Unimpeachable integrity
  • Masters degree or equivalent experience
  • Fluency in English required; proficiency in one or more critical languages preferred
  • US work authorization
