About LAWRS

The Latin American Women’s Rights Service (LAWRS) is a human rights and feminist organisation led by and for Latin American migrant women in the UK. Our work is dedicated to supporting the immediate and long-term needs of Latin American migrant women exposed to violations of their fundamental human rights; facing violence against women and girls, exploitation or trafficking; enduring difficult living and working conditions in low paid jobs and facing barriers to social protection.

The role

LAWRS social change team reflects our inclusive approach to developing policy, advocacy and campaigning work by centring the experience of the most marginalised and excluded women to call for social justice. By enabling the participation of women with lived experience in policy and campaigning work our social change team promotes a holistic, rather than issue-based, understanding of the human rights violations experienced by Latin American migrant women in order to tackle systemic barriers that heighten migrant women’s vulnerability to abuses and which bars them from exercising their rights, accessing justice and leading violence free lives.

The post holder will be responsible for the design and delivery of community organising work, building upon our existing community organising programmes with women workers and survivors of gender-based violence.  The Community Organising Officer will enhance the capacity of groups of Latin American migrant women to organise themselves around key issues, in a way that is sensitive to intersectional experiences.

You will have an excellent command of English and Spanish. This post is open to Latin American women only in accordance with the Equality Act 2010.
