Staff

Omega operates a flat management structure, with staff collectively agreeing strategy and work plans, under the oversight of a Board of Trustees. We have a small, dedicated staff team who all collaborate on the core work of the organisation. Researchers work across a broad range of issues but within this often have a geographical or subject focus.
