The Fellowship is a professional engagement with students treated as junior staff in the organisation. While experience with migrant worker issues is an advantage, it is not required. We are looking for people who are passionate about social justice, are self-motivated, resourceful, able to work in a team and not afraid to take on new challenges outside their comfort zone.
10 — 15 hours per week (negotiable)
25rd Jan — 23th April
10am — 5pm
10th May — 26th July
Justice Without Borders (JWB) is a regional charity that supports victims of labour exploitation and human trafficking in seeking civil compensation against their abusers, even after returning home. Our offices in Hong Kong, Singapore and Indonesia are developing the networks, knowledge and know-how needed for cross-border civil litigation, so that migrant workers can access justice wherever they are.
In Singapore, JWB works with migrant aid organisations and lawyers. Our clients are mostly low-wage migrant domestic workers from Indonesia or the Philippines who have been exploited or abused by employers or employment agencies in Hong Kong or Singapore. Many of these workers face pressure to return home, where they encounter enormous difficulties pursuing civil claims across borders.
Welcome but not required
This is an unpaid fellowship.
