Working to ensure accurate, timely, engaging and informative content on detention policy and practice across a range of platforms, the Information and Communications Officer will be an integral part of our small team based in East London. This is the perfect opportunity for someone with outstanding written and communications expertise, web development and social media skills, and some knowledge of the issues facing people in detention today to gain valuable experience in one of the UK’s leading immigration detention NGOs. While we expect you to have some experience in communications provision (paid or unpaid), this is an internship post and training will be provided. 

This is a paid post, initially for six months, part time (2.5 days a week/19 hours)



Salary: London Living Wage (£19, 012 FTE)

2.5 days a week (19 hours) initially for six months
