STOP THE TRAFFIK is a ground-breaking charity established in 2006, working with communities across the world to assist in preventing modern slavery & human trafficking.

As the STOP THE TRFFIK team is growing, we are looking to recruit a second Project Officer for the team. This communications role is critical to our model of building resilient communities, using various digital platforms.

The Project Officer will work across the STOP THE TRAFFIK team to work on communications aspects of STOP THE TRAFFIK’s projects. This will largely include our geo-targeted community campaigns, which use digital communications to actively disrupt and prevent human trafficking networks.


Supported by the Project Manager, some of the activities the postholder will do include:

  • Creating and editing written, video and social media content.
  • Supporting the design and execution of grant applications and presentations alongside a focus on fundraising.
  • Communicating analytical intelligence into an engaging narrative for a range of audiences.
  • Supporting and delivering presentations and reports for businesses and multi-agency partnerships.
  • Evaluating the projects and finding ways to use learnings in future work.


To be successful in this role you will:

  • Although a degree in the relevant field is desirable it is not essential. Extensive experience in communication would be essential for this role (e.g. digital creative, communications assistant, fundraising, and social media.)
  • Demonstrable communications experience and skills. The successful candidate may have worked in roles such as, but not limited to, digital creative, communications assistant, fundraising, and social media.
  • Have proven experience in video editing, use of social media platforms and presenting content in a range of engaging ways.
  • Possess the advanced ability to craft written messages and tailor them to specific audiences.
  • Open to the concept of agile working, moving between teams and using your skills and voice to support other teams’ projects.


In return you will be rewarded by working with a supportive and friendly team, working on an interesting high profile, global issue, conveniently based in our Central London office.  This could be the next exciting step in your communications career.
