Systemic Justice is looking for a Communications Assistant to help us communicate about our work to radically transform how the law works for communities fighting for racial, social, and economic justice.
About Systemic Justice
Systemic Justice works to radically transform how the law works for communities fighting for racial, social, and economic justice.
Centring affected communities in joint litigation, Systemic Justice will help broaden access to judicial remedies for those fighting for justice and equality. This will help dismantle the power structures that underpin and fuel racial, social, and economic injustice.
We are the first organisation in Europe that works with community partners on strategic litigation by taking a community-driven, intersectional approach, and that is Black-led and has a majority BPOC team.
About the role
The Communications Assistant will assist the Head of Communications with day-to-day operations, such as drafting content for Systemic Justice’s social media channels, creating social media graphics, content for our newsletter, and other assistance in relation to our communications channels. The Head of Communications will supervise the Communications Assistant.
Initially a short-term assignment, we hope to extend and scale the role over time.
Our work is rooted in our foundational values of anti-oppression, intersectionality, and justice. We are looking for someone who shares these values and for whom the prospect of operationalising these in our day-to-day work is an exciting prospect.
This is a part-time (equivalent to 16 hours per week), remote role.
What you'll be doing
What we hope you’ll bring
Familiarity with social media channels, specifically Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn;
Familiarity with content management systems and graphics software used for social media content production;
An understanding of racial, social, and economic justice issues;
Strong English-language writing skills;
Familiarity with digital trends;
The ability to present legal language in an easily accessible manner, considering Systemic Justice’s hope-based approach to communications.
In addition to this, the successful candidate is highly organised, keen on taking initiative, and has an excellent eye for detail.
Systemic Justice’s working language is English, so confidence in writing and speaking in English is a must. Proficiency in French or Spanish will be considered an asset. Please note that Systemic Justice works in the CET time zone +/- two hours. Being located inside this time zone span is considered an advantage.
Deadline and how to apply
The deadline to apply is 18 November at 23.59 CET.
Your application should consist of your CV, 2 examples of work you are proud of having been involved in, clarifying the extent of your involvement (I.e. if a tweet with graphic, please confirm whether you drafted the copy, created the graphic, or both), and a short written response to these three questions:
Our work is rooted in our foundational values of anti-oppression, intersectionality, and justice. We invite anyone who does not have lived experience with systems of oppression to reflect on their suitability for this role before applying, and to address this as an introduction to their responses to the above questions if they choose to apply.
Conditions and remuneration
Period: ASAP / 1 December 2022 – 31 May 2023 with the possibility of extension.
Remuneration: This is a six-month, part-time role, equivalent to 2 days (8-hour workday) per week. The hourly fee is between 18-22 EUR depending on experience. The ambition is to extend the role beyond the initial term.
Location: The Systemic Justice team works remotely. The team meets three times a year in person to discuss strategy, organisational development, staff well-being, and more. In addition to this, individual staff members meet bilaterally or in smaller groups when needed.
Flexible schedules: We are generally online and available from 11-16 CET, but are otherwise flexible about working hours to accommodate the best individual balancing of personal and remote-work life.
