Ongoing Volunteer Research Assistant posts

Child Soldiers International is seeking volunteer research assistants to assist with background research on child military recruitment worldwide.  You will help conduct country focused research, gather data and maintain databases, prepare draft reports for the UN, and other basic research tasks as required. This work is ideally suited to students studying for a Masters degree or higher in Human Rights, Law, International Relations, or a related field and seeking work experience.

Unfortunately we cannot offer remuneration on this occasion but we will provide references for candidates who submit quality work. Research may be conducted remotely, or at our London office (based near London Bridge/Borough). We are able to reimburse lunch and travel expenses (restricted to Transport for London zones 1-4) for volunteers who come into our office.

Interested candidates should apply to, enclosing:

  • CV (ensure languages spoken to professional level are highlighted)
  • Details of availability
  • Unedited sample of written work

Thank you for your interest and support for this work.
