Personal attributes we're looking for:
Digital Rights is an emerging field of human rights work around the world. Whilst experience with this work is preferable, campaign skills and experience from other fields are also applicable. Formal qualifications and experience are less important to us than the right attitude and passion. If you’re interested in this role, please do apply.
Founded in 2016, Digital Rights Watch is a national charity whose mission is to ensure that Australians are equipped, empowered and enabled to uphold their digital rights. We believe that digital rights are human rights which see their expression online.
Our vision is for a digital world where all humanity can thrive, and where diversity and creativity flourishes.
To ensure this, our digital world must be underpinned by equality, freedom and established human rights principles. Its evolution and future must be guided and driven by the interests of all people and the environments we live in.
Digital Rights Watch exists to defend and promote this vision – to ensure fairness, freedoms and fundamental rights for all people who engage in the digital world.
This is a part time (0.6FTE) fixed term 3 month contract (with possibility of extension to 12 months).
The salary being offered is $125,000 per annum (pro-rata 0.6FTE) including 9.5% superannuation.
