Who we are
Peace Direct is an international charity with a big mission: to work with local people to stop violence and build sustainable peace in some of the world's most conflict affected countries. More than that, we want to change the international system so that it better supports the role that local people and communities play in preventing violence and building and sustaining peace.
About the role
This is an exciting new role, which will support a global campaign entirely led by local peacebuilders. Yes, that's right: not a campaign designed and delivered by us, but by local peacebuilders around the world. Our role at Peace Direct is to act as a secretariat and facilitator of the campaign, providing logistics support and guidance as required. Local peacebuilders will be in the driving seat.
The Campaign Coordinator will work closely with a cohort of local peacebuilders around the world who will meet online regularly to identify the main problems experienced by them and others like them globally, as well as the potential solutions, which will lead to the development of key campaign messages. The role of the Campaign Coordinator is to ensure that the local peacebuilders have whatever they need to deliver an impactful global campaign.
This is not your typical campaigns role! You will be the support team, not leading or directing the campaign but helping a diverse group of passionate activists to coalesce around a set of campaign messages. Key activities include:
- Engaging with existing campaigns led by Global South actors and networks to develop an inclusive process for identifying local peacebuilders to form a ‘global campaign team’
- Designing a selection process to recruit 8-10 local peacebuilders as the campaign team
- Developing a campaign co-creation process, enabling the campaign team to identify the problems in the peacebuilding system, explore solutions, and craft campaign messages
- Identify and work closely with a creative agency to support the visual identity and narrative formulation of the campaign
- Support all aspects of the implementation of the campaign, ensuring that it has global reach
- Provide regular ‘touch points’ for the campaign team to share ideas and brainstorm together
- Facilitate any training and coaching necessary for the campaign team
- Organising in-person events for the global campaign team to meet periodically and to participate in other global meetings
The ideal candidate will be a true campaigner, ideally with a lived experience of conflict, who will have a strong background in supporting national or international campaigns. You will have excellent project management and communication skills, strong written skills, excellent interpersonal and team working skills and will be highly organised. Fluency in a second language (French, Spanish or Arabic) would be a bonus.
This position can be based anywhere globally (so long as there is a reasonable internet connection!), and we strongly encourage campaigners from the Global South to apply. Due to the part time and flexible nature of the role, we expect the role to be a consultancy position.
Peace Direct strives to be a diverse and inclusive employer, with equality of opportunities regardless of personal identity, and we are committed to improving our systems and ways of working to support this, including creating a Diversity, Equality and Inclusion (DEI) working group, DEI strategy and recruitment guidelines. We strongly encourage individuals from disadvantaged and underrepresented backgrounds to apply, including Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME), LGBTQ+, people with disabilities and people with mental health challenges.
Please note that we expect all applicants to complete a cover letter and an application form. CVs will not be accepted.
The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
Contract Type: Fixed Term contract for 12 months.
