Project Officer internship
The Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner is offering a unique opportunity to enjoy the benefits of a traditional internship i.e. learning with and from a small team of experienced, supportive colleagues, but on an 8 week fixed term paid contract basis. The purpose of the role is to deliver a specific survivor informed research project, likely to focus on exploring models for survivor engagement within anti-slavery work or examining barriers to sustainable independence for survivors of modern slavery in the UK. The title and detail of the project will be agreed dependant on the experience, knowledge and interests of the successful candidate.
The successful candidate will work to the Commissioner’s Victims and Partnership policy lead. The post is advertised as an 8 week fixed term contract, but we are flexible as to how the hours are worked to accommodate the domestic circumstances of the chosen candidate.
Work related travel will be pre-paid by the Commission and any other reasonable costs (e.g. stationary) will be reimbursed.
The Commission will provide the successful candidate with a laptop and, if needed, home wi-fi access and a telephone for the duration of the internship. Additionally, if the role is primarily working from home due to Covid-19 restrictions, we will support the candidate with temporary office furniture.
We are looking for a candidate who has lived experience as a survivor of modern slavery who, preferably, will have previously been through the National Referral Mechanism. This is important to inform the research projects outlined above.
