As it is unlikely that we will be able to obtain a work permit for this role, all job applicants must already have the right to work in the UK.

Applications will be reviewed on an ongoing basis, and Alert reserves the right to bring the closing date forward so early applications are encouraged.

While International Alert will endeavour to contact all candidates within a reasonable time, this may not always be possible due to limited resources. Therefore, if you have not heard from us within two weeks of the closing date, you can assume your application has, on this occasion, been unsuccessful.

International Alert is an equal opportunities employer. All applicants will be judged strictly based on merit.
