Job Details
Redeem’s mission is to protect widows and orphans from violent abuse and exploitation by:

• Awakening the world to the need to defend the orphan and the widow in the twenty-first century;

• Assembling the resources needed to protect the world’s most vulnerable widows and orphans;

• Assisting law enforcement in real cases that restore victims and restrain their abusers; and

• Amplifying law enforcement protection through community engagement and capacity building.

We are currently implementing a program in Uganda to protect widows and orphans from the devastation of predatory eviction with plans to expand our defense of the vulnerable into other countries in the future.

As a Redeem Investigator, you will investigate claims by individual victims of violence in the criminal, civil and administrative justice systems and enhance the capacities of our law enforcement partners from the Justice Law and Order Sector (“JLOS”) while contributing to Redeem’s culture of Christian excellence.

Specific responsibilities include:


• Partnering with other members of the casework team in developing Redeem’s overall intervention strategy and developing evidence collection and intervention strategies for individual cases;

• Planning, organizing, and conducting investigations concerning allegations of predatory eviction;

• Collecting physical evidence, witness statements, and documents necessary for building cases;

• Analyzing investigative findings and preparing reports for review by Redeem’s Attorneys;

• Advising and mentoring police officers in their investigation of cases involving Redeem clients;

• Recruiting, training, and managing contract-based investigative informants and operatives; and

• Providing security support for Redeem-sponsored mediations and meetings.

Capacity Building

• Contributing to the team’s efforts to build capacities in all relevant JLOS actors.


• Communicating with donors, supporters, media, and other outside parties about Redeem’s work;

• Contributing to the review and design of organizational systems, guidelines, and policies;

• Participating in Redeem’s professional development and spiritual formation activities;

• Supporting other teams within Redeem in the achievement of their objectives; and

• Completing other duties as assigned.

Redeem strives to build a culture of Christian excellence that reflects the following four core values:

• We love each other well;

• We don’t make easy things hard;

• We measure by results; and

• We are joyful in our work.

Redeem is looking for a highly skilled and responsible individual who will reflect these values while representing individual victims of violence in the criminal, civil and administrative justice systems and enhancing the capacities of our law enforcement partners from JLOS. Specific attributes include:



• Required: Five years of progressive experience in an investigative capacity in law enforcement or similar governmental agency or private, nongovernmental organizations or enterprises;
