● We generate private funding by demonstrating how effective interventions can protect those at risk of being enslaved and free those in slavery.

● We invest in those countries and sectors with the greatest incidence of slavery.

● We analyse which interventions work best, and we share that knowledge. ]

● We bring together a community of activists committed to ending slavery and empowered by the knowledge of how best to do so.


You will develop and implement the Freedom Fund’s sector initiatives on legal strategies and supply chains. Our legal initiatives focus on supporting human rights litigation, civil litigation, criminal prosecutions and domestic legal capacity to combat slavery. Our supply chain initiatives aim to promote transparency and accountability in supply chains, and encourage robust action by business to tackle forced and bonded labour.

Our sector initiatives build on the Freedom Fund’s global leadership role; its design, monitoring, and evaluation expertise; its relationships with other anti-slavery actors; and its ability to encourage collaboration through funding and grants.
