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.

We are seeking for a committed Latin American woman to join LAWRS’ Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) team,  which supports Latin American women affected by VAWG (e.g. domestic abuse, sexual violence, harmful practices, trafficking for sexual exploitation and other forms of gender-based violence) into safety and protection and in rebuilding their lives free from violence.

The post holder will be responsible for providing clerical and administrative support to the successful delivery of the VAWG programme and its associated activities, including the coordination of internal and external surgeries and the fulfilment of monitoring and evaluation tasks.

You will have an excellent command of English and Spanish. Immediate availability is needed.


This post is open to Latin American women only* in accordance with the Equality Act 2010. We particularly welcome applications from disabled and LBTQ+ candidates as they are currently underrepresented within the team.
