Previous applicants need not reapply. As it is unlikely that we will be able to obtain a work permit for this role, all applicants must already have the right to work in the UK.

The deadline for applications is Monday 1 January 2018 (23:59 UK time). Applications will be reviewed on an ongoing basis, 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 that your application has, on this occasion, been unsuccessful. International Alert is an equal opportunities employer. All applicants will be judged strictly on the basis of merit.
