Website Liberty

Liberty is an independent membership organisation. We challenge injustice, defend freedom and campaign to make sure everyone in the UK is treated fairly. We are campaigners, lawyers and policy experts who work together to protect rights and hold the powerful to account. We empower others to defend their own rights and the rights of their family, friends and communities. Our principles are guided by evidence and expertise – not political agenda, profit or popular opinion. We’re not afraid to speak uncomfortable truths or confront intolerance and abuse of power wherever we find it. Together we’ve been making the UK a fairer, more equal place since 1934.

Liberty is currently recruiting a Policy and Campaigns Intern to join the team on a 6 month Fixed Term Contract. If you are interested in furthering a career in human rights campaigning and policy work, then we want to hear from you.

The Policy and Campaigns Intern position is designed to both provide vital support to the Policy & Campaigns Team and provide opportunities for the post-holder to develop their skills and knowledge in human rights policy analysis, parliamentary advocacy, and campaigning. This is an entry-level position requiring no prior experience.

Liberty is striving to build a team that is truly inclusive. We welcome applications from marginalised groups, particularly people of colour, trans and non-binary people and disabled people. Your potential to learn and grow in the role is what’s important to us. If you have lived experienced of Liberty’s campaigns/core issues or are looking to change careers and move into a campaigning world, but don’t have 100% of what we are asking for in the person specification, we still want to hear from you.

Key responsibilities

The Policy & Campaigns Intern has a set of core responsibilities to which specific tasks and projects will be added based on their skills and experience.

  • General administrative support (e.g. filing, preparation of documents, scheduling of meetings, travel arrangements)
  • Data entry, and other administrative support for Liberty’s public advice service
  • Coordinate logistics and administrative support for major events and meetings
  • Attend Advocacy, Policy and Campaigns, and cross-team meetings and participate in strategy discussions
  • Accompany staff members to meetings with coalition partners (e.g. other NGOs, grassroots groups), members of Parliament, and other officials, as appropriate
  • Undertake research to support legal and policy work
  • Attend Liberty events as needed, including occasional duties outside of office hours.
  • Maintain an awareness and knowledge of developments in politics, human rights and civil liberties in the UK.
