About CHRI

The Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative (CHRI) is an independent, non-profit, non-partisan, international non-governmental organisation working in the area of human rights. In 1987, several Commonwealth professional associations founded CHRI, since there was little focus on human rights within the association of 53 nations although the Commonwealth provided member countries with the basis of the shared common legal system.

  2. 3-4 years of relevant work experience
  3. Ability to work with a high degree of initiative and responsibility
