Offers of work and volunteering opportunities with Survival in London and San Francisco are posted here. For positions in other offices (Berlin, Paris, Madrid, Milan), please see the Survival website in the relevant language.
Survival does not manage any projects overseas – we do assist some projects with tribal peoples, but these are run by the tribe itself. We do not send volunteers into the field, or sponsor any visitors other than our own staff.
Our resources are very limited and therefore we regret that we cannot reply to applications unless we are interested in pursuing them. We apologize for this. If you apply for a position and do not hear from us within ten days, please assume that we will not be pursuing your application at this time. You are, however, welcome to apply for other positions as they arise.
A genuine commitment to Survival and its work is more important than formal qualifications or a desire to work in the charity sector as a whole.
This position will work with and report to our web team.
You must have the right to work in the UK.
What can we offer you?
When you join Survival, you’re getting more than just a career: you’re gaining a unique opportunity to be at the heart of one of the most exciting campaigning organizations around; it is not just a job. You will be working with a team of passionate people who really care about human rights and want to change the status quo.
This is a 2 day / 14 hours per week position (regular working hours to be arranged between 10am and 6pm Mondays to Fridays). The contract is for 12 months (renewable), with a 6-month probationary period. Salary £28-31k per annum pro rata.
Deadline: 28 July 2017
Interviews will start on 31 July 2017
To apply send your CV and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org

Are you an experienced video editor/producer who’d like to volunteer at one of the most exciting human rights organizations around? Could you deliver high quality, engaging film and audio-visual projects that communicate the impact of our work?
Film and video are vital to any campaigning organization. We currently produce a series of short videos in-house for the web, and for sharing on social media, but we’re looking for a leap forward in quality and quantity of output.
You will have a strong technical and creative background with a minimum of two to three years’ professional editing experience, preferably with Premiere Pro.
Fully experienced in the entire editing process from envisaging and scripting short film clips to mixing footage, sound design and colour correction, you will also be confident with digitizing footage, outputting various media formats and upload.
We’re hoping to find a long-term volunteer, but as a minimum are seeking a commitment to a couple of days a week for at least three months, as you’ll need to familiarise yourself with our extensive video library.
If you think you can help us, please send your CV and a cover letter to email@example.com
