Join the cFFP Team

We are an entirely volunteer run organization, and every single person involved donates their time and talents of their own volition.

Any listed vacancies will be volunteer positions. 


We are currently seeking driven, self-motivated, and innovative volunteers to support and shape the growth of CFFP for our HQ and UK branch. Available positions are either remote or London-based. Producing high quality work independently and in time for deadlines is essential. We particularly encourage applications from people whose communities have been historically underrepresented in foreign policy.

Necessary abilities and competencies for these roles include: flexibility; excellent written communication skills; precise attention to detail; experience working with a minimum level of supervision; understanding the political context feminist foreign policy is embedded within; and perhaps most importantly, the ability to think creatively and take initiative on one’s own.
