The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) Caseworker-Investigator is responsible for death penalty casework, investigation, and administration support to Reprieve clients and support to partner organisations and lawyers in the MENA region.
ABOUT THE TEAM: the Reprieve MENA team’s work is diverse and constantly evolving to shape, respond to and anticipate changes in the domestic and regional death penalty landscape. Our strategy in any given jurisdiction is developed in collaboration with – and informed by – our partners and fellows. Direct casework and investigation on strategic cases is core to our work in all regions, and includes legal, political and advocacy strategies as appropriate.
We look in particular to find and develop cases and narratives which have the potential to change the landscape and benefit as many individuals or classes of individuals as possible. We also undertake and assist with longer term thematic projects and engage with regional and international mechanisms and organs where it is strategic to do so.
ABOUT YOU: you are a positive and creative person with a can-do attitude, a proven ability to multitask and work under pressure and to tight deadlines, a willingness to muck in on all tasks big and small, creativity and a passion for Reprieve’s work. You will be someone whom clients, family members, colleagues and partner organisations feel confident to approach for professional casework support and more. Even if you don’t always know the answer, you will be capable of proactively obtaining it from the Head of the Middle East and North Africa Projects or the Directors.
