We have an exciting opportunity for Domestic Policy Volunteer, who will support Freedom from Torture’s strategic programme of domestic advocacy to improve legal and policy protections for torture survivors in the UK as asylum applicants and refugees, under the supervision of the Senior Policy Advisor.

Volunteer roles in the Policy and Advocacy Directorate are an opportunity to learn how large human rights NGOs develop and deliver their research, policy and advocacy agendas, whilst also contributing to the generation of evidence-based policy on torture survivors specifically.

Please note that a graduate or post-graduate qualification in a relevant discipline (or enrolment in a relevant university course) are essential prerequisites for this role.
Our internships are voluntary (unpaid) however, we are able to reimburse lunch and reasonable travel expenses within London.

Previous interns have especially valued:
• Learning about torture, the rights of torture survivors and the UK’s asylum system;
• Gaining experience of how research, policy and advocacy strategies are developed and implemented by NGOs;
• Attending external meetings relating to human rights and refugee protection issues; and
• A supportive working environment.

Please note CV and cover letter addressing the JD and Specification of the role are mandatory to be considered for the position.

Candidates must have the right to work in the UK to be considered for this position.
Freedom from Torture is dedicated to healing and protecting people who have survived torture. We provide therapies to improve physical and mental health, we medically document torture, and we provide legal and welfare help. We expose torture globally, we fight to hold torturing states to account and we campaign for fairer treatment of torture survivors in the UK.
