We’re recruiting: Digital Comms Officer

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 hold government and others to account through challenges in the courts, or through campaigning for positive change.  

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 their 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 recognise the value of our employees, individually and collectively.  We entrust our commitment and investment in their welfare. Together, we can make a change.
