The Need

For 25 years, IJM has pioneered the work to protect vulnerable people from violence. As we grow to expand our impact to protect 500 million people from violence by 2030, we are seeking a Training Coordinator, Thailand to support planning of trainings and workshops in Forced Labor/Trafficking in Persons subject matters.

The project, Equipping Thai Officials to Identify and Investigate Forced Labor and Labor Trafficking: Improving Case Outcomes and Victim Engagement through Enhanced Capacity Building, aims to build the Thai government’s capacity to enforce its TIP laws in a trauma- informed, victim-sensitive manner, equipping frontline officials with guidelines and training needed to ultimately increase the number of Forced Labor/Labor Trafficking cases identified and improve case investigation outcomes.

These needs will be met through four objectives. Objective 1 will resource frontline officials with new implementing guidelines and coordination and referral SOPs (Standard Operating Procedures) to identify, refer and investigate FL/LT cases. Through Objective 2, training of trainers (TOTs) and an online training platform will equip agencies to train frontline officials to apply the guidelines and SOPs; and in Objective 3, agencies will be equipped to train frontline officials to use trauma-informed, victim-centered approaches in their work to identify FL/LT cases. Crosscutting Objective 4 extends Objectives 2 and 3 by establishing and building the capacity of teams of expert mentors within each government target agency to monitor and support the institutionalized training and coaching of frontline officials.
