Contract: 1 Year Fixed Term Contract (with a view to extend)


Location: London, SE1

Salary Range: £30,594 – £36.727

STOP THE TRAFFIK is a pioneer in human trafficking prevention.

STOP THE TRAFFIK views human trafficking as an illegal business reliant on: the recruitment of vulnerable people, demand for its services and the ability to profit from human trafficking. We combine unique data on human trafficking with an intelligence led approach allowing STOP THE TRAFFIK to actively undermine these three pillars that allow trafficking to continue via our websites www.stopthetraffik.org and www.traffikanalysis.org.

Utilising global partnerships, STOP THE TRAFFIK has reached over 7 million people through geo-targeted social media campaigns. These are groups that our data set has identified as vulnerable to human trafficking. As a direct result of these campaigns, STOP THE TRAFFIK has evidenced a behavioural change within these targeted communities, signalling the difference between a person being exploited or not. By making it harder to recruit vulnerable people, STOP THE TRAFFIK increases the risk to traffickers and makes it harder for them to operate.

STOP THE TRAFFIK works with many businesses across multifarious sectors to stop trafficking in supply chains. We have mapped £5 billion worth of procurement spend across 33, 000 suppliers. Working collaboratively with businesses to make them resilient to modern slavery impacts on trafficker’s ability to monopolize their operations.  In addition, STOP THE TRAFFIK works with financial institutions to identifying traffickers, trends, routes and hotspots. In doing this, STOP THE TRAFFIK is preventing trafficker’s from moving the profits of their crime and aiding in increased prosecutions. Collaboration is key to our model and together with trusted partners, businesses, financial institutions and communities, we are creating a world where people are not bought or sold.
