The British Council are pursuing a number of Justice projects in South Sudan, Nigeria, Horn of Africa, Western Balkans, Myanmar, Philippines and South Asia. 

The BC sees justice and rule of law as the way in which power and resources are managed in society.  The common objective across our justice portfolio is to create, or reinstate, citizens’ faith in justice institutions as a problem-solving mechanism. We work with citizens and the state to help build trust, engaging and re-engaging citizens with formal and informal governance structures on the basis of collective needs and interests.

We currently deliver projects in several countries, including Nigeria, Philippines, Myanmar and Serbia and are actively exploring opportunities in other parts of the world.

We expect to have a range of long and short term opportunities coming up, including Team Leader posts. 

Consultants should have a minimum of five years’ international experience of working in one or more of the following areas:

  • Access to Justice and rule of law
  • Peacebuilding, conflict resolution, alternative dispute resolution
  • Addressing violence against women and girls 
  • Women’s Participation and leadership
  • Addressing migration challenges, including tackling modern slavery
  • Working with formal and informal systems 

These opportunities are all at an early stage and timescales will vary. 

Consultants interested in being considered for one or more of these programmes are invited to submit a CV and 500-word expression of interest, outlining their most recent relevant experience and indicating which countries/region they are interested in and what length of assignment they would prefer.  

Please send CV’s and your expression of interest to: justice@britishcouncil.org  with the subject line EOI Justice, by 30 April 2019
