Defending the
Human Right
to a
Fair Trial

Opportunities To Work With Us

Like many charities Fair Trials relies on the support of volunteers to do its work. These positions at Fair Trials have a massive impact on the charitable work we do and are an opportunity to gain an excellent insight into our work and develop extensive professional skills.


 

Researcher

Fair Trials is an international human rights NGO, which exists to build respect for the right to a fair trial in criminal cases. We have grown gradually over the past five years and have an established track-record as a trusted voice on criminal justice. We have 16 staff across offices in London, Brussels and Washington DC, and are in the process of increasing the geographical reach of our work.

We are seeking to appoint a Researcher in our Brussels office. The Researcher will be a member of Fair Trials’ global Campaigns and Communications Team and will be tasked with leading Fair Trials’ efforts to document, raise awareness of, and campaign against miscarriages of justice and breaches of the right to a fair trial occurring across Europe. Working with the broader Fair Trials team and with Fair Trials’ national partners, the Researcher will lead related research projects and will design, develop and implement international, regional and national-level campaigns seeking to end fair trials abuses.

The post of Researcher is full-time. The post will be based in Fair Trials’ Brussels office, with frequent travel throughout Europe, and occasionally further afield. You will work actively with other members of Fair Trials’ staff team in London, Brussels and Washington, DC, as well as with our partners in countries across Europe. You will report directly to the Regional Director (Europe) and will be an active member of the Campaigns and Communications Team.

This is an excellent opportunity to play a crucial role in a small and dynamic human rights NGO at an exciting time in its development.
