About Global Legal Action Network (GLAN) 

GLAN is a unique non-profit organisation that pursues innovative legal actions across borders, challenging states and other powerful actors involved with human rights violations. Our vision is to challenge injustice through legal action. We believe that more can be done to challenge serious human rights violations by transcending borders, working transnationally and giving a voice to the disempowered. Not only do we mobilise law across borders, we bridge disciplines by bringing together experts from different areas of law and professional perspectives (practice/academia) to unlock the potential of foreign courts and legal mechanisms to secure change. 

The Role 

GLAN has steadily increased the number of legal cases and the international reach of its work. This has created a need for a dedicated Campaigns Coordinator to join the team.

Diversity and Inclusion 

GLAN strongly encourages applications from black, Asian, minority ethnic and/or disabled candidates, as well as those who have been directly impacted by social and/or structural injustice. GLAN recognises that the sector we work in urgently needs the benefit of greater diversity, and that many people from such backgrounds face impediments to access or progression within the sector. We understand that extensive criteria can discourage applicants from less privileged backgrounds and that some candidates will not apply for a role unless they feel they meet 100% of the essential and desirable requirements. If you are from such a background and meet some but not all of the criteria below, we would still very much like to hear from you.
