Work with us!

Thank you for your interest in being part of the SVRI team. Our team of people from diverse backgrounds, skills and preferences are united by a common commitment and passion for knowledge creation that is done in ways that serve women and children in all their diversity, and creates a world where violence against women and violence against children does not exist.

The four pillars of our strategic plan – building evidence; strengthening capacity; promoting partnerships; and, influencing change – work together to make sure policy and programmes are evidence informed, sustainable at scale and rooted in strategic partnerships that will drive action at local levels. Commitment to diversity, gender equity and the highest ethical standards is core to the culture of SVRI.

Ask yourself:

  • Do you want to work for an organisation that is feminist, rights based, collaborative, equitable and kind?
  • Are you committed to building evidence for improved prevention and responses in the field of VAW and VAC in low- and middle-income countries?
  • Are you excited by impactful and policy relevant research?
  • Are you passionate about redressing the inequities in research and evidence building between high income and low- and middle-income countries?
  • Do you want to elevate the voices of under-served communities in evidence building processes?

If you have answered yes to the above, please consider working with us. Look out for SVRI vacancies in the SVRI Update or the SVRI website and social media platforms!
