BHRC is Hiring! Applications now open to join us as a Project Officer (Part Time)

The Bar Human Rights Committee of England and Wales (“BHRC”) is seeking an energetic and experienced professional with confidence in project management, fundraising and governance to join the team as a part-time Project Officer.

The successful candidate will work closely with BHRC’s Executive Committee and Project Team on the day-to-day coordination of BHRC’s varied programme of projects and interventions. This involves a combination of long-term project work and short-term reactive work, often in response to urgent and developing situations.

This is a wide-ranging role. As a result, the successful candidate must be able to work independently but also productively as part of a small team, with strong administrative, communication and project management skills to support the delivery of the activities of BHRC’s Chair, Office Holders, Executive Committee and wider membership. We are looking for someone who is proactive and efficient, with an eye for detail and who has experience working with smaller and non-profit organisations.

Experience of the international human rights, international development or charity sector is desirable. Experience in fundraising is essential since the role involves relationship-building and submission of funding applications and update reports to present and potential funders.

This position is envisioned to be based in part remotely and in part in the London office, including for meetings and events. Working arrangements will be agreed with the successful candidate.
