We’re hiring for our Sydney office - Help us defend democratic freedoms

We have two exciting opportunities to join the Human Rights Law Centre team in Sydney to focus on our work defending democratic freedoms.

Our democratic freedom work is both responsive and agenda-setting. Currently it focuses on:

  • Promoting free-speech and assembly rights and challenging excessive anti-protest laws
  • Defending the rule of law and the institutions that protect and promote human rights
  • Promoting press freedom and whistleblower protections
  • Protecting the ability of civil society organisation to speak out and engage in public debate

We are recruiting for a Director of Legal Advocacy to lead this work and to work across other impact areas. The position will be based in Sydney and will be for a 12 months fixed term period, but subject to funding, it might be extended.

We’re also looking for a Lawyer. This position is ongoing and is aimed at lawyers with more than 2 years post-admission legal practical experience and will be based in Sydney.
