Job Details

Do you have what it takes to lead the social media and online communications for one of the UK's leading immigration detention NGOs?

An exciting new opportunity has arisen to join AVID (Association of Visitors to Immigration Detainees) as Information and Communications Officer, leading on our information provision and communications work nationally in support of people in immigration detention.

Immigration detention is one of the UK's most serious human rights concerns. Migrants are detained without time limit, in prison conditions. AVID works to alleviate this through volunteer visiting (befriending) and engaging in policy and advocacy for positive change.

Working to ensure accurate, timely, engaging and informative content on detention policy and practice across a range of platforms, the Information and Communications Officer will be an integral part of our small team based in East London. This is the perfect opportunity for someone with outstanding written and communications expertise, web development and social media skills, and some knowledge of the issues facing people in detention today to gain valuable experience in one of the UK’s leading immigration detention NGOs. While we expect you to have some experience in communications provision (paid or unpaid), this is an internship post and training will be provided.

This is a paid post, initially for six months, part time (2.5 days a week/19 hours)
