About Us: Love Justice International (LJI) is a Christian nonprofit organization compelled by God’s love to fight the world’s greatest injustices. We fight injustice in two primary ways: through our expanding anti-human trafficking work and by caring for orphaned and abandoned children. We currently work throughout Asia and Africa.
Position Type: Full Time; Support-Raised*; Overseas (South Africa)
*If hired, the candidate will be required to raise financial support to cover his/her own salary, benefits, and expenses. Raising support is a key example of the body of Christ supporting its members and joining in the fight against injustice. LJI will provide administrative and prayer support throughout the process, as well as guidance and resources to build up a support base. Please prayerfully consider whether you may be called to step out in faith and raise support for this position.
Position Overview: LJI's anti-human trafficking model focuses on transit monitoring. We identify, intercept, and assist trafficking victims as they are being transported—when victims and traffickers are the most visible and open to detection—and before they reach the destination where victims will be sold, hidden, and abused. Because the crime of trafficking has already commenced, we have access to actionable intelligence that can be used to assist police in the apprehension of suspects and to understand trafficking methods. To date, we have intercepted over 28,000 individuals to prevent them from being trafficked. More than 1,000 arrests have stemmed from our anti-trafficking work with 35% of closed cases resulting in convictions.
To ensure excellence among our field offices in Asia and Africa, Love Justice has developed more than 30 "core processes" to implement in each office to monitor performance and compliance. These processes include a variety of different areas, such as budgeting and financial reporting, administration and human resources, data collection and compliance, security audits and investigations, shelter care, and legal cases.
The role of an Anti-Trafficking Field Officer is to help install and monitor compliance with these core processes. This position offers candidates the unique opportunity to apply their practical knowledge and skills to make a difference in anti-trafficking work around the world. The core processes for which the Field Officer will be responsible would depend on her area(s) of professional expertise. Relevant fields include business, finance, accounting, legal, data analysis, security, law enforcement/investigations, human resources, and human assessments.
The Anti-Trafficking Field Officer will report to the Director of Compliance. The position will be based in South Africa and will involve travel to our programs throughout Africa and Asia.
Primary Duties and Responsibilities: The primary duties and responsibilities of the Anti-Trafficking Field Officer are the following:
Core Process Installation - Field Officers will work closely with LJI core process Leads and LJI Regional Stewards to install necessary core processes.
Installation may often take place through a series of video calls and emails, however, also occasionally will require travel to the field for in person trainings
Core Process Compliance - After the installation of a core process, Field Officers will be assigned one or more core processes for which they will assist the core process Lead in closely tracking compliance.
Follow-up training will often stem from this compliance monitoring work and Field Officers will be expected to take initiative to ensure our national partners understand what is required of them.
Anti-Trafficking Pilot Projects - As a member of the anti-trafficking program team, Field Officers will remain available to assist with new project ideas. A particular Field Officer’s passions, skills, and expertise will be taken into account.
In time, Field Officers may likely develop expertise in one or more of our core processes and take on more responsibility (as the assigned Implementation Manager or becoming the core process Lead).
