Job description

Prisoners Abroad is a unique welfare and human rights charity providing advice and emotional support to people affected by overseas imprisonment. We help people during their incarceration, when they return to the UK and need resettlement services, and we also support their family and friends throughout the trauma.

In this role, you will provide crucial advice to embassies, consulates and country caseworkers at the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) on human rights issues affecting British nationals abroad, including claims of torture and cases where a British national could be or has been sentenced to death.

An outstanding communicator with an in-depth, comprehensive practical knowledge of human rights law (particularly relating to fair trials and prisoner rights), you must also hold a legal degree and preferably a formal qualification in human rights.

This post is based at the FCDO with one day every fortnight at Prisoners Abroad, although it is expected to be home-based during the current situation due to Covid-19

Interviews are scheduled for w/c Monday 5th October 2020 via Zoom.
