Volunteers: Public Relations & Visual Communications

We need your help! Justice Without Borders is seeking talented volunteers with a public relations or visual communications background. If telling stories via words or pictures is your passion, then we would love your help.

Volunteers will gain hands-on experience in public relations, work closely with JWB staff across the region. Those interested in making a difference for migrant workers are welcome to apply. Only 10-15 hours a week for a minimum of three months required.

What You’ll Be Working On

Volunteers will help drive PR and visual communications, including writing and designing organizational materials for our partners and clients. These can include our Annual Report, explainer brochures, know your rights posters, short videos and others.  Volunteers will also provide support in strategic research and content development/management for JWB’s public relations, social media platforms and digital assets.

Work also includes supporting other public relations projects, including fundraising, event management, administration and supporting out staff generally.

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. This is an unpaid volunteer position.

About Justice Without Borders

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 face pressure to return home, where they encounter enormous difficulties pursuing civil claims across borders.
