The ERRC Seeks a Consultant for Assistance with its Community Legal Work

31 January 2017

The European Roma Rights Centre (ERRC) is seeking to contract with a consultant to assist the ERRC in supporting our communities with community legal projects this year. Roma will have the opportunity to develop projects to show how relying on our rights and on the law can help improve our situations. You will be a liaison for our community-based projects. We are looking for activists with robust experience in coordinating and organising communities.

Please note that this is for a consultancy, not an employed position at the ERRC.

The assignment will run on a fixed term from 1 March until 31 December 2017.

Deadline for applications: 17 February 2017

Information about the consultancy

The consultant will be expected regularly to visit our projects and facilitate exchanges of information. The projects will take place in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia, Moldova, Serbia, Turkey, and/or Ukraine. For more information about the projects, please visit this page on the ERRC’s website.

Profile of applicants

The ERRC seeks a consultant with significant experience of working with and, if possible, mobilising Romani communities. A law background is helpful but not essential. The consultant should be able to work in English and speak Romanes as well as at least one of the languages of the countries mentioned above. The consultant should be based in one of the countries where (or near where) the projects are taking place, and is expected to travel to the other projects and to Budapest from time to time.

Application Procedure

To apply for this consultancy: candidates should send the following materials:

  • A maximum one-page letter of interest in English.
  • A CV in English.

Candidates should submit their documents by 17 February 2017 via email to Adam Weiss at adam.weiss@errc.org.

The subject should be: CMLW consultancy.

Only shortlisted candidates will be contacted in the course of the selection process. Incomplete or late application packages will not be considered.
While actual recruitment to all ERRC consultancies is strictly on merit, the organisation strives to increase the number of persons of Roma origin with whom it works and therefore specifically encourages candidates of Roma background to apply.
