The HiiL Justice Accelerator is searching for a Hub and Franchise Manager to support the creation of local hubs of justice innovation.

Take a leading role in the HiiL Justice Accelerator programme.

Every year the HiiL Justice Accelerator scouts and selects the world’s best justice innovators. As a full time member of our team, you get to meet some of the most amazing, impressive, and impactful entrepreneurs you’ll ever meet – and take an active hand in supporting them.
