Job Description

You will be a natural storyteller – a prolific writer with a flair for words and a creative, organised outlook. Outstanding oral and written communication skills go without saying.

Possessing a minimum of seven years of relevant experience, you will have the ability to produce a range of advocacy and communications materials for a variety of audiences. Ideally, you will have some understanding of the Indian legal system from the trial courts to the Supreme Court. In addition, it is an asset to have experience of working with a diverse range of actors from different backgrounds and cultures, including civil society organisations, low-income clients, media, lawyers, government and policy-makers.
