Work For Us

We are not currently advertising any roles. New vacancies will be posted here so please check back soon.

We are proud to have an open and transparent pay structure. It is governed by a principle that the highest-paid member of staff will be paid no more than double the lowest-paid member of staff. We strongly welcome applicants from a diverse range of backgrounds.

Other opportunities

There are many ways to become involved in our work. You can support our campaigns, make a donation, carry out a paid internship through a sponsoring institution, or work for Reprieve US Whatever you choose to do, your contribution is valued by us.

We are proud of our diversity and we want as many people as possible to have the opportunity to contribute to our work. With that goal in mind, we no longer have unpaid volunteer roles because we recognise that not everyone is in a position to give their time for free. Instead, we are very lucky to have the support of universities who fund summer internships and 12-month fellowships, law firms and corporate partners who offer their staff on secondments, and charitable trusts who fund internships both in the UK and abroad.

Postgrad Fellowships

Reprieve US is pleased to offer 12 month fellowships based in Washington DC to graduating students who are able to secure external funding.  Fellows typically source funding through sponsorship, law school-funds, corporate foundations and other public interest fellowships. Please see our 2023 fellowships advert for full details and information on how to apply. Please read our applicant information before applying.

School placements

We are pleased to accept applications for seasonal fellowships on a rolling basis for those funded by their university or other public interest bodies. We accept applications for placements on academic credit within the school year, and not over the summer when applicants must be externally funded. We cannot consider applicants who wish to self-fund their placements.

Applicants should be available to work full-time for Reprieve for at least 8 weeks.

If available places for seasonal placements are filled we will run a waiting list.

Those interested in applying should carefully read our advert and applicant information as an initial step. We would suggest applicants then discuss the availability of funding with:

  • their university careers office; or
  • the relevant scholarship or public interest fellowship coordinator/office; or
  • the corporate social responsibility team at their organization; or
  • any other person responsible for coordinating voluntary placements at charitable organizations.

  • A cover letter of no more than 1 page
