NSWP is seeking to recruit a Policy Officer to join our Policy Team, led by the Senior Policy Officer, working on developing global advocacy tools for our members and reviewing external policy documents in line with the NSWP Consensus Statement and the priorities set by the NSWP Board.

The work will require a combination of strong interpersonal, research and writing skills, with an ability to recognise and respond to different regional and members’ needs through effective multi-lingual electronic communication tools, networking and consensus building.

This post will support the work of the NSWP in:

  • Developing responses in line with the NSWP Consensus Statement on Sex Work, Human Rights and the Law, to global, regional and national policies that impact upon sex workers around the world.
  • Developing advocacy tools that will strengthen the work of regional networks and member organisations in campaigning for the rights of female, male and transgender sex workers and amplifying the voices of sex workers globally.

NSWP will consider applications from individuals interested in working either as a staff member (based in Edinburgh), or as a consultant (based outside the UK). The post will be full-time (37.5 hours, 5 days a week).
