Who we are: Transform Justice is a national charity working for a fair, humane, open and effective justice system in England and Wales. We promote change by generating research and evidence to show how the system works and how it could be improved, and by influencing practitioners and politicians to make those changes. We focus on the “dark corners” of the justice system – areas that are often overlooked despite affecting the lives of thousands of people every year. See our website for a full overview of our work.
About the role: Transform Justice is seeking an enthusiastic communications officer to play a vital role supporting its work to create a better UK justice system. Working closely with our existing team of three, you will provide high quality communications and administrative support across various aspects of our work. In particular, you will work on our FairChecks campaign for criminal records reform and our exciting new CourtWatch London project, which invites volunteers to observe their local magistrates’ court and feed back on what they see. We are looking for someone flexible and organised, who is able to work on their own and take initiative.
