Job Description

Hope for Justice is recruiting for four on-the-ground consultancies to each carry out a country-level Contextual Analysis as part of the development of programmes to combat modern slavery and trafficking in persons.

This is an exciting opportunity for a field-based research professional to determine the prevalence of modern slavery and trafficking in persons at country-level, understand the root causes of vulnerability, and ultimately make an evidence-informed recommendation to Hope for Justice for a programme intervention. In so doing, the consultant will not only be assisting the development of Hope for Justice, but they will also be making a tangible contribution to both national and international counter-trafficking efforts.

We require one consultancy per location in the following countries:

  • Malawi
  • Zimbabwe
  • The Philippines
  • Vietnam

About Hope For Justice

Hope for Justice is an international, non-governmental organisation which exists to bring an end to modern slavery.  Our strategy is based on ‘Preventing exploitation, Rescuing victims, Restoring lives, and Reforming society’. Across all four strands, Hope for Justice is committed to developing high-quality and evidence-based programmes with life-transforming outcomes for victims and survivors.

For this reason, we have ambitious targets for growth, both in our existing geographies and in new countries. We recognise that a rigorous and consistent approach to new programme development is to be considered best practice, particularly in new geographies where our contextual understanding is initially limited.

Contextual Analysis

The full scope of work for each Contextual Analysis will be agreed with the successful consultants, but we anticipate that each analysis will contain, at minimum, the following elements:- Political Economy Analysis; Stakeholder analysis; Rights Based Analysis; Social Exclusion Analysis; Prevalence studies review; Sector intervention options; and final Recommendations. Such recommendations should also include an evidence-based judgement on Geographical areas; Industrial sectors; Target groups; Practice areas; and multi-agency partnerships.

The maximum budget available for this piece of work is GBP£10,000 per country. We anticipate that the consultancy will take place over 60 days with regular communication with the Hope for Justice project team, and will be completed no later than 30th September 2021.

Please read supporting Terms of Reference for a more in-depth project scope and overview.
