Vacancies at ForcesWatch

ForcesWatch is a non-profit organisation based in London, which conducts research and campaigning on ethical issues concerning the military, young people and society in the UK. We monitor and report on military recruitment practices, support groups and individuals challenging them, and work for changes in recruitment policy and human rights issues within the military. We challenge efforts to embed militarist values in civil society.

The successful candidates will share the concerns of ForcesWatch and be keen to support our work.

Both positions will be based at the ForcesWatch office in Kings Cross.

The closing date for both positions is 6pm, Monday 23 May 2016

There is no fixed starting date for either of these positions. While we are keen that the new staff start soon, this is less important than appointing the right people.

UPDATE: We have had a few enquiries as to whether it would be possible for one person to do both of these jobs. While we would not rule this out, our preference is to appoint two people and, as the positions require different skills and experience, we think it unlikely that one person would have everything we are looking for.  Please get in touch if you would like to discuss this further -
