Job description

At Make Votes Matter (MVM), our mission is to achieve real democracy via the necessary step of equal votes.

We lead the movement to introduce Proportional Representation (PR) to the House of Commons. We combine the power of people taking action from the grassroots up, with coordinated activity by a cross-party Alliance of politicians, public figures, parties and organisations to win PR in years, rather than decades.

About the role

As CEO, you'll support us through a new stage in our development. We're operating in a fluid political environment and so our new leader needs to be confident to work in a political setting while also having the skills and experience to run an organisation like ours.

You'll take ultimate responsibility for our campaign to achieve Proportional Representation in the House of Commons. You will:

  • as leader of the campaign, be primarily responsible for building the popular and political momentum needed to secure this seismic reform;
  • as leader of the organisation, be primarily responsible for defining and executing MVM’s strategy, while ensuring its good financial health and legal and regulatory compliance; and
  • as leader to our staff and volunteer team, be primarily responsible for providing clarity of direction while ensuring the organisation maintains a collaborative, empowering and inspiring culture.

You will:

  • lead the UK campaign for Proportional Representation;
  • ensure MVM has a clear external brand, with consistent messages, effective and emotive arguments, and impactful use of evidence;
  • be a spokesperson for the organisation on a variety of public platforms including national media and at key MVM events;
  • create and strengthen relationships with key stakeholders;
  • lead on development of MVM's post-election strategic plan;
  • line manage and delegate responsibilities to staff, as appropriate;
  • take ultimate responsibility for the good governance of MVM, including but not limited to the organisation’s financial health, legal compliance, and good standing with regulatory bodies;
  • with support of relevant MVM staff, to ensure that the Board is supported in performing its governance role;
  • support and comply with MVM’s policies active within the organisation pertinent to the role; and
  • undertake other related duties as required to assist MVM in meeting its objectives.

About you

This job is for you if:

  • you have a track-record as a successful leader in an organisation of comparable size, or equivalent managerial or director experience;
  • you have political or campaigning experience, an understanding of the UK’s democracy sector and an ability to work in a non-partisan, cross-party way;
  • you have experience of being a spokesperson on public platforms;
  • you have a collaborative approach to team management and facilitating empowerment of staff;
  • you have prior experience of good governance practices, financial planning and managing an operation to tight budgets;
  • you are an experienced leader of people, able to ensure coherent and aligned activities across staff, governance and volunteer teams that support the overall objectives and enable high impact campaigns to be realised;
  • you have excellent communication and influencing skills and the ability to convey a message with impact and inspire trust; being comfortable communicating with senior stakeholders, volunteers, staff and funders;
  • you are a high achiever with an ambitious mindset; and
  • you have a strong personal commitment to winning Proportional Representation.
