About FLEX

Focus on Labour Exploitation (FLEX) is a research and policy organisation working towards an end to labour exploitation. FLEX seeks to achieve this vision through the prevention of labour abuses, protection of the rights of those affected or at risk of exploitation and by promoting best practice responses to labour exploitation through research and evidence-based advocacy.

About the role

This role will reinstate FLEX’s training and capacity building programme, which seeks to enable front line organisations directly supporting workers at risk to identify and support potential victims of labour exploitation. As Training Officer, you will be responsible for the design and delivery of bespoke training and support to front line organisations supporting at-risk workers. You will have a strong background in the areas of human trafficking/modern slavery, or labour rights. You will join FLEX’s Policy Team and work closely with our Networks and LEAG Officer to map areas of need and identify organisations to recruit into the programme. Above all this role requires someone with real passion and commitment to FLEX’s work to end labour exploitation and an excitement for working in a small, dynamic team.

We encourage applications from people who identify as part of marginalised communities.

If you are disabled or become disabled, we encourage you to tell us about your condition so that we can make reasonable adjustments and consider what support may be provided at the interview and task stage.

Please include details of your achievements and work relevant to the job description and person specification in your cover letter.
