This is a great opportunity for an experienced child rights specialist to help us deliver on a project looking at reducing childhood statelessness in the UK.
Working closely with the ENS staff team, under the supervision of the Head of Policy & Research, the Consultant will devise and deliver innovative strategies, develop our relationships with key stakeholders, and make a significant contribution to reducing childhood statelessness in the UK.
We are looking for a UK-resident policy and advocacy specialist with a proven track record in child rights. Creative and innovative, you will be a skilled communicator and pride yourself on producing high quality policy analysis to influence change within civil society and among decision-makers. You will have solid experience of working collaboratively and building inclusive alliances with key stakeholders, including communities and activists, which you can use to help us inspire others to work together to end childhood statelessness.
You will have experience working in a child rights context and will understand children’s welfare issues in the UK, including those facing children subject to immigration control. You will have knowledge of the domestic, regional, and international human rights frameworks, an understanding of citizenship issues, and proven experience of working within networks and coalitions for campaigning, policy, and advocacy purposes across the UK.
We are recruiting on a rolling basis, but we are looking to recruit someone as soon as possible and will be conducting an initial review of expressions of interest on 12 May 2021.
