Now Recruiting: EJP Managers for 2017

Being a Manager

EJP is run by two Co-Directors and an Executive comprised of eight Managers. Being a Manager is an incredible opportunity to lead a team made up of intelligent, committed and hardworking volunteers. It is an immensely rewarding experience and is a real lesson in leadership. As well as being able to shape your team’s policy, you’ll be involved in setting the broader goals of EJP in 2017. There are opportunities to work closely with prominent members of the legal profession and to access training and resources from top lawyers. The Manager term runs for a full year, commencing in November 2016.

Applications are due by 5pm Monday 17th October. We look forward to hearing from you! If you have any questions please contact Jade and Ella at directors@equaljusticeproject.co.nz.
