Bertha House is a multi-purpose facility designed to serve activists including organisers, educators, storytellers, and other changemakers working to build a more just city, country and planet. We aim to provide inclusive, stimulating, safe and exciting spaces in which a diverse range of people and groups can come together to work, organise, learn, create, and collaborate.
Job Title: Director
Location: South Africa
Located in the central Cape Town suburb of Mowbray Bertha House – presently home to the Tshisimani Centre for Activist Education – plans on growing its occupants and offerings in 2021 to include an activist cowork community, expanded events and activity spaces, a cafe, a media and storytelling lab, and a cinema.
The Bertha House project is much more than just a building. It is about growing and nurturing a vibrant community of people wanting to change the world – a place that is recognized locally and globally as a cutting-edge hub for collaboration and innovation in activism.
In Bertha House we also aim to build an alternative model of how workspaces are managed where membership and access is not based on exclusive fees, but rather a practiced commitment to justice, community, reciprocity, cooperation, and mutual aid.
The Bertha House Director will be in charge of implementing this vision working very closely with Bertha Foundation’s Global Spaces team. As this is a new initiative, we are looking for a strong leader who can shape and implement strategy, create collaborative work environments, build organisational culture, lead teams, and actively recruit and support users of the space.

Bertha is offering a full-time permanent contract (subject to funding availability) with a 6-month probation period. Compensation is commensurate with experience. We are looking for someone to start as soon as possible.
