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 (Nepal)
*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 Level: Associate, Coordinator, or Director**
**The position level, which determines both the position’s level of responsibility and its total compensation and benefits, will be determined based on the candidate’s qualifications, skills, and years of experience.
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 which can be used to assist police in the apprehension of suspects and to better understand trafficking methods. We have intercepted over 22,000 individuals to prevent them from being trafficked, and we have assisted police in the arrest of over 100 traffickers.
To ensure excellence among our field offices in Asia and Africa, Love Justice has developed 27 “core processes” which are implemented 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 audit and investigations, victim engagement & shelter care, and legal cases.
LJI is seeking a Victim Engagement Specialist to help guide, develop, and adapt Kingdom-class strategies and core processes for potential victims intercepted by LJI regarding victim care and empowerment.
