Positions are open to all affected stakeholders to develop requirements for FSC-accredited certification bodies auditing for conformity with ILO Core Conventions criteria and indicators, to assess their impact on certificate holders, and to recommend how to implement them into chain of custody (CoC) certification. We strongly encourage certificate holders with CoC certification or project certification, certification bodies, consultants, researchers, individuals with labor union experience, and FSC members to apply.

The ideal applicant should demonstrate the following:

  • Knowledge and experience in at least one of the following topics: ILO Core Conventions, social and labour issues in the supply chain, CoC certification, or auditing.
  • Able to think outside the box to resolve issues and create solutions.
  • Able to analyze, discuss, and negotiate the technical requirements of the document.
  • Able to build consensus to work with competing interests to build consensus.
  • Able to speak and write in English.
  • A firm commitment to attend all scheduled online and in-person meetings, including during 11-12 December 2018; 16-18 July 2019 and 10-12 December 2019. All in-person meetings are expected to take place in Bonn but may change depending on the composition of the working group. All travel costs associated with the project will be covered.
