About the role

Systemic Justice is looking for a Social Media Assistant to join our growing organisation. You will assist with day-to-day handling of our social media channels, including by generating content, creating social media graphics, monitoring engagement and assisting in planning and executing social media campaigns.

About Systemic Justice

Systemic Justice works to radically transform how the law works for communities fighting for racial, social, and economic justice. We are the first organisation in Europe that partners with communities on strategic litigation by taking a community-driven approach; that is Black-led; and has a majority BPOC team. We approach our work through an intersectional lens, and across the digital and non-digital context

Strategic litigation is a powerful tool that can be used alongside advocacy, campaigning, and policy work to help bring about systemic change. However, litigation is underutilised in movements working to address the structural inequalities in our society. Centring affected communities in joint litigation, Systemic Justice works to broaden access to judicial remedies for those fighting for justice and equality. This will help dismantle the power structures that underpin and fuel racial, social, and economic injustice.
