About Good Law Project

We are a small and young organisation but we have been expanding quickly, with increasingly prominent and successful legal cases: we had a primary role in overturning the prorogation of Parliament 21 months ago and have more recently been shining a bright light on the Government’s award of PPE contracts and jobs to friends and associates. We raise funds directly from the public for our work in the public interest and operate on a not for profit basis. We are brave, honest, and decisive – those are Good Law Project’s values.

We are now looking for a Director of Partnerships who can imagine a future in which discrete communities cohere around what they have in common and who also has the skills to bring that world closer. We want to extend our reach in civil society through forming, strengthening and diversifying partnerships and collaborations, all in service of our mission of using the law for a better world.

We envisage partnering with organisations who work with communities or on issues in which we have a shared interest, who have particular operational strengths Good Law Project lacks, or who deliver functions Good Law Project would like to promote, including in particular around how the law can be used to catalyse the desire for a better world. You will report to our Executive Director. You can see how the role fits into the current Good Law Project team here.

  • Salary: £60,000 per annum with generous benefits including enhanced pension contribution
  • Hours: 35 per week over 5 days
  • Contract type: permanent after completion of 3 months’ probation
  • Location: Remote currently due to COVID-19; ultimately working in central London with some flexibility.

The successful applicant will be an experienced and trusted senior manager, likely in the NGO sector, with a proven track record of managing and delivering ambitious projects. They will have the remit to recruit a small team to help with delivery. They would also be expected to help shape the ongoing work of Good Law Project more generally.
