Our ideal candidate will have:
- Experience in a similar or related role.
- A track record of managing and delivering successfully on complex, multi-partner projects, particularly ambitious communications-heavy campaigns.
- A strong understanding of effective campaigning, including the inter-play between different campaign tactics.
- Excellent interpersonal communication skills, including an ability to quickly build trust with partners address and resolve conflicts
- A high degree of motivation and initiative, and an ability to work relatively autonomously when needed.
- Exceptionally high standards, and associated qualities needed to work in a dynamic organisation with an ambitious agenda.
- A strong commitment to Uplift’s mission and core values of equity and climate justice.
