Digital Rights Caseworker
Closing: 8th September 2022
Salary: £32,000-36,000 GBP (dependent on experience, plus 10% contributory pension)
Full time, 18-month contract with renewal subject to grant funding.
Based in East London, Worker Info Exchange is at the cutting edge of defining the future world of work where algorithmic management is fair and transparent. We are now expanding our team (in a shiny new workspace) so that we can increase our engagement and reach to app-based workers in precarious employment and to the communities where they live and work.
Join our exciting campaign to empower London gig workers by helping them take control of their personal data at work, develop a worker led data trust and challenge for ever greater algorithmic transparency at work.
You will be responsible for casework management for our digital rights portfolio. In this key new role, you will engage with London workers and local communities to organise workers through the assertion of digital worker rights.
Digital rights are increasingly important in the fight for worker rights for gig workers who are surveilled, managed and controlled at work by hidden algorithms. Opaque automated management systems foster exploitation and discrimination while blocking access to worker rights protections established in law.
