Current Vacancies

Advice and Information Volunteers

Liberty is currently looking for dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers to assist its Advice and Information team.

Volunteers will be required to work one day per week, although flexible working patterns will be considered and can be discussed at interview. The minimum volunteering commitment is three months. We have a policy of not retaining volunteers for longer than six months and never for more than one day per week or the equivalent thereof. Volunteers’ duties will include:

  • Conducting legal research and drafting responses to queries from members of the public regarding a variety of human rights and civil liberties issues;
  • Assisting with the drafting of content for the Advice and Information Hub on Liberty’s website;
  • Assisting with other legal and research tasks.

Applicants must have completed a qualifying law degree or equivalent (i.e. an LLB or GDL).

Our volunteers will be volunteering remotely for the foreseeable future due to COVID-19, but during the course of the volunteering placement, we aim to organise some optional, in-person social events so that volunteers can meet each other and Liberty staff in person.

Unfortunately, Liberty is unable to pay our volunteers. However, we are committed to ensuring volunteers at Liberty have a valuable experience with us. You will gain insight into how a human rights NGO like Liberty operates. You will also have the opportunity to develop new skills and legal knowledge, as well as learning from colleagues across different teams at Liberty who are experts in their fields. Many of our volunteers have gone on to work in the legal and human rights sector, and offering dedicated mentoring and support to those at the beginning of their legal career is a priority for our team.

Whilst you are volunteering remotely with us, Liberty is able to reimburse some homeworking expenses. You will require access to a personal computer and an internet connection. Liberty may be able to provide you with a laptop if you don’t have one. Get in touch with us if you would like to discuss this further.

If you need reasonable adjustments in the interview process, please tell us in your application. This won’t affect how we look at your application, but we want to accommodate your needs whenever possible. If you become an Advice and Information volunteer, we will do our best to make any reasonable adjustments you might need.

Applicants should refer to the full Job Advert and Person Specification.

Application Forms should be returned by email as Word or PDF documents to hr@libertyhumanrights.org.uk with the job title as the subject no later than 9am on 27 June 2022.

Applications received after the closing date will not be considered.

We also ask you to submit the Equality and Diversity Monitoring Form but this is optional.
