Our work relies on the powerful synergy of law, research, popular education, storytelling, and community organising to advocate for urban land justice. We believe that a diverse and dynamic team strengthens our ability to meaningfully support the families, communities and movements most affected by urban inequality.

Are you committed to social justice and promoting access to well-located land and affordable housing? Would you like to contribute to building a better city? Then we want to hear from you! 

Have a look at the job opportunities below (job opportunities will be posted as and when they become available).


We offer internships and volunteer opportunities at our Cape Town office on a rolling basis. We welcome students, graduate students or volunteers from South Africa and the Global South who want to contribute to our community organising, research, advocacy or legal work by assisting our staff. We’re always looking for people working in our areas of work, including urban planning, architecture, human geography, politics and law. We want to bring talented young people into social justice work and to offer an opportunity to be employed, gain experience, and ultimately find decent work. To apply, send a short description of your expertise and a copy of your most recent CV to employment@nu.org.za.
