Volunteer call: We need your help!

Privacy International is building a comprehensive resource of the world's surveillance and privacy laws, and we need your help. As part of the Global Surveillance Monitor project, recent tasks undertaken by volunteers have included: researching the right to privacy in constitutions around the world, locating and analyzing the EU's data retention laws, and researching global data protection regimes. We need additional help on two of these projects, in the form of: 

(1) identifying native-language versions of the world's constitutions, and
(2) further researching global data protection regimes. 

Each volunteer will have the opportunity to work alongside Privacy International's small, passionate team as we work to build a global privacy resource. We're looking for volunteers who are sufficiently interested in various aspects of the privacy field that they find enjoyable some of the 'grunt work' entailed in these tasks.

Volunteers will assist Privacy International's team at our offices in Holborn and must be able to commit to a minimum of three days per week for two months. At the moment we only offer placements to those who can come into the office. Desirable applicants will possess:

  • a strong commitment to fighting unlawful surveillance and other intrusions into private life by governments and corporations
  • maturity and independence
  • initiative and demonstrated ability to work without supervision
  • excellent communications skills

To apply, please send a covering letter and CV to We are hoping to fill these positions as soon as possible.

Please see the employee information section of our privacy policy to find out how we take care of the information given to us by prospective employees and volunteers.
