A4ID is a global charity with a vision to see the law and lawyers play their full part in the global eradication of poverty. The mission of A4ID is to be an authoritative voice of the legal community, to inspire and enable lawyers to join the fight against poverty, and to ensure that legal support is available for those engaged in that fight.

A4ID is currently working hard to make its vision and mission a reality through its innovative pro bono broker service and bespoke pro bono projects; its respected education and training programmes, its acclaimed thought leadership and policy work; its Rule of Law Expertise UK Programme; and its international project work.

The overall goal of A4ID’s ROLE UK Programme, recognising the intrinsic link between improved rule of law and poverty reduction, is to contribute towards poverty reduction, accountability and human rights through supporting rule of law interventions including, but not limited to, improving policies, laws, institutional capacities, procedures and practices within legal and judicial systems in developing countries.

The Programme contributes to specific rule of law and poverty reduction goals with a focus on building long-term and strategic peer-to-peer partnerships between UK legal sector stakeholders and rule of law actors in developing countries.

In addition, by acting as a knowledge hub for the sector and the wider community of practice, the ROLE UK Programme will continue to generate and share knowledge and lessons learned on what works in the rule of law development space and to deliver trainings to improve rule of law technical assistance in international development.

Finally, to help increase collaboration toward strategic and sustainable rule of law outcomes, the Programme will facilitate coordination opportunities between the UK legal sector, international development stakeholders and practitioners, and stakeholders in partner countries, through networks, forums and bespoke opportunities for peerto-peer learning

The ROLE UK Programme Coordinator will work closely with the rest of the Programme team, particularly the ROLE UK Lead, and will lead on coordination events for the Programme, as well as offering coordination, logistics and analytical support across the Programme’s strands. The position will provide insight into the functionality of an international development programme, and be an opportunity to build project management and analytical skills and experience in rule of law context.  The full Role Specification is:  ROLE UK Programme Coordinator JD – Jan 2022
