Transform is a UK based think tank and registered charity working in the area of drug policy and law reform. Our mission is to end the War on Drugs and establish effective and humane systems of drug regulation.
In the next few years Latin America, and Mexico in particular, will be key to ending the failed global War on Drugs and replacing it with effective, humane systems of regulation, so removing the biggest driver for violence and corruption in the region. As a global leader exploring and campaigning for legal regulation, Transform has a vital role to play in bringing that change about.
However, to do so we must work collaboratively and effectively with experts, influencers and NGOs in Mexico and other Latin American countries. For that to happen, having Transform staff visit from the UK will not be enough. We will need someone based in Mexico who speaks Spanish, and understands the culture and politics of the region, so they can tailor our work appropriately, and act in an ambassadorial role at lobby meetings, in the media and when working with our allies.
- The post will be part-time (3 days a week), and for one year initially
- £28 000 pro rata
- Based in Mexico
- Fluent in Spanish and English
