Job description

Hope for Justice exists to bring an end to modern slavery by preventing exploitation, rescuing victims, restoring lives and reforming society. Around the world, we are growing a movement of abolitionists who believe freedom is worth the fight. Our team works from more than 30 locations across five continents. If you’re looking to make a difference, this is the place for the you.


There are over 40 million people living in slavery in the world today.

You can help change that.

Last year we launched our 10x strategy with the aim of delivering ten times the impact in our fight against modern slavery and human trafficking around the world.

You will have experience of working across a global organisation, with a proven track record of leading Talent Development and/or Learning and Development initiatives or functions. With this being a new role, you will need to have innovation and creativity whilst being able to lead others through change to bring them along with the new vision and strategy.

We believe we can end modern slavery in our lifetime.
