Join us in the ambitious ‘Birmingham In Action’ campaign, which commits to raising over £400 million of charitable funding and one million volunteer hours, positioning the University as one of the world leaders in University development.
We are looking to recruit a new Campaign Data Assistant to be a part of this. Campaign Data Assistants are DARO’s lead data experts, responsible for all specialist data-related activity in support of our fundraising and volunteering campaign’s goals. The post holder will maintain the integrity of the alumni database, support colleagues in the identification of fundraising and volunteering prospects, and lend specialist support to projects through the development, analysis and communication of robust data-led intelligence.
We are an ambitious and successful research-intensive University (one of the top 100 research-led universities globally) and have produced 10 Nobel Prize winners. Academics here are tackling some of the world’s most pressing global challenges such as antibody testing and COVID-19, the impact of climate change on our woodlands and forests, issues caused by migration and displacement, the rise in youth mental health issues, and the prevention of needless maternal deaths in the developing world. Our students come from nearly 150 countries and our flagship outreach programmes mean that almost 25% of our student population come from disadvantaged backgrounds, one of the highest proportions in the UK. Philanthropy has always played an important role in shaping the University, most recently in 2015 when we closed the Circles of Influence Campaign, which raised £193 million, making it the largest HE fundraising campaign outside Oxbridge and London. Through ‘Birmingham In Action’, philanthropy will continue to play a vital role in delivering projects to change lives locally, nationally, and internationally.

Overview and Summary:
We are seeking to appoint a part-time Campaign Officer (0.8 FTE) on a 12-month contract – a crucial role for our more than 60-strong coalition during a vital period for our work.
We’re in the middle of a steadily building campaign that spans political advocacy, public communications and engagement with businesses, targeted towards ensuring the introduction of what our coalition calls a UK ‘Business, Human Rights and Environment Act’. This role will play a central role in shaping and driving forward the campaign, working alongside our civil society group partners to do so.
We are a broad coalition, including NGOs, trade unions and law firms, and spanning a range of political and thematic priorities, spanning workers’ rights and modern slavery, to climate and the environment, global justice and the rights of women and girls, children and indigenous peoples. But what brings us together is a shared commitment to improving corporate accountability for human rights abuses and environmental destruction: in line with this, collaborative work for change alongside our partners is at the heart of all we do.
While it’s fundamental that you have a minimum of two years’ experience of working in campaigns/the not-for-profit sector, and we want you to be a skilled writer, we’re keen to hear from candidates with different skill sets. If you’d like to have a chat about the role ahead of applying, please do feel free to get in touch with.
Please note, applicants must hold the right to work in the UK to be considered for this role.
CJC is an equal opportunities employer committed to refining anti-oppressive practises in its work. We particularly welcome applications from black and minority ethnic candidates, who are under-represented in the business and human rights sector.
What we’re looking for
First and foremost, we’re looking for someone who is highly motivated and has a real commitment to campaign for change on corporate accountability for human rights abuses. You’ll be enthusiastic and full of ideas, able to juggle multiple deadlines and tasks, while being ready to show initiative and take ownership of your area of work.
You don’t need to be a policy expert on our issues, but you’ll need to have the ability to rapidly gain an understanding of what we work on and why. And you’ll need to be a confident and skilled writer who’s equally happy writing tweets, drafting scripts for social media videos and writing press releases and comment/analysis for media outlets.
Facilitating joint work alongside our coalition partners is fundamental to everything we do, so we’re looking for someone who already has experience of working in the not-for-profit sector - whether in the UK charity sector or elsewhere - and who will be at ease regularly communicating with other organisations and facilitating meetings which can have multiple organisations in attendance.
Our work spans engagement with politicians, the public, journalists, academics, lawyers and businesses. So you’ll need to be adaptable and able to work with such a wide variety of stakeholders.
You will be the main point of contact for our partner organisations working on this campaign, so it’s crucial that you’re comfortable with and enjoy collaborative work with others. We need someone who recognises and understands the value of civil society groups working together effectively, and relishes the opportunity of being a key enabler of such coalition work.
This is a crucial, very busy, outward-facing role in a small organisation seeking to make big changes. The role offers a huge opportunity to play a key role in a growing campaign with the potential to secure a meaningful change in UK legislation.
Please see attachment for more details.
Please send a CV and cover letter outlining your reasons for applying for the role and why you believe you are suitable for it. Please also include up to three samples of published writing you may have available to share.
Please note that we will review, shortlist and interview applicants on a rolling basis.
The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.

We are looking for a temporary but enthusiastic community activism organiser to join the Friends of the Earth Cymru team at a very exciting time to cover a period of staff sabbatical. The role will support communities to campaign for environmental change and climate justice. You will also help grow an active grassroots movement with a particular emphasis on supporting communities right across Wales and those disproportionately impacted by climate change and environmental justice issues. Although based in Wales you will also be expected to work with other related teams across Friends of the Earth England, Wales and Northern Ireland and share local to global stories of solidarity.
Key Skills and Attributes:
You must be able to listen to, engage with and support communities in their local campaigns as well as joining up issues to effect Wales-wide change. You will have experience of working or campaigning at grassroots level, managing complex relationships and working with diverse communities of people. Ideally you will have a background in climate, environment or nature issues.
In a climate and ecological emergency business as usual is no longer an option so you must be able to demonstrate an understanding of transformational change as well as the need for local and grassroots action.
We are looking for a confident communicator with a knowledge of working with communities both in person and online. You will be able to design and deliver support for grassroots networks. You will be flexible enough to juggle the demands of a multi-campaign organisation as well as responding rapidly and effectively to changing external circumstances. The ability to communicate in Welsh is desirable.
You will be working directly with groups and activists and this will sometimes require evening and weekend work.
The Friends of the Earth Cymru team campaigns on a range of environmental threats – from the climate and nature crises to transport, clean air, fossil fuels and behaviour change. We also support communities on the issues that are important to them. As well as community activity we use our collective influence to make transformational change and strategic interventions at local and Welsh government level.
