We’re hiring: Video and Multimedia Producer

About Good Law Project

Good Law Project’s mission is to achieve change through the law. We defend, define and change the law to protect the environment, uphold democracy, and ensure no one is left behind. We are committed to holding Government and other powerful actors to account and to tackling issues of injustice, inequality and discrimination experienced by some of the most marginalised groups in our society.

But securing change takes more than wins in Court. We need to take Good Law Project’s messages to new audiences and motivate our existing supporters to take action.

We’re looking for a Video and Multimedia Producer to help us do that; someone comfortable working in a fast-paced audiovisual role who will help our organisation to meet its important aims.
