Bertha Justice Initiative
Bertha UK Ltd is seeking a full-time Program Officer for the Bertha Justice Initiative program. The successful
candidate will be based in the Bertha offices in London. Bertha UK Ltd advises the Bertha Foundation in Geneva.
The Bertha Foundation supports forms of activism that aim to bring about change and champions those using media,
law and enterprise as tools to achieve their vision (http://www.berthafoundation.org/). We envision a society where
stories come from many different voices, where law is used as a tool for justice and where business delivers positive
social impact. The Bertha Justice Initiative seeks to support and grow the practice of movement lawyering,
recognizing that the law has long been a crucial element in the struggle for social justice and movement lawyers have
shown us how the law can be used as a tool for change. The program supports organizations that practice public
interest law and promote movement lawyering around the world and two-year fellowship positions for emerging
lawyers at these organizations. By facilitating a global network of public interest lawyers and training emerging
lawyers in this field, we work to inspire the growth of social-impact law.
The Program Officer is responsible for assisting in coordination and management of the Bertha Justice Initiative. This
will include establishing effective modes and means of communication for the Bertha Fellows and partners network,
grant management and administration on Bertha Justice Initiative grants, and assisting with events and new projects
of global reach within the Be Just Program. The Program Officer and will report to and work under the supervision of
the Director of Legal Advocacy in the London office, but will also work in close collaboration with program directors in
the Bertha Foundation’s other work portfolios. This position will require some international travel that will include
some weekends. Salary is commensurate with experience.
