This position is full time and remote. It can be undertaken by anyone living between GMT +2 hours (Western Europe / East Africa) and GMT -6 hours (Central Americas).
A bit about us

We are a movement of more than 20 million people, brought together by a global team of 40+ campaigners, fundraisers, engineers and operations staff. Our purpose is to challenge corporate power everywhere.

We build partnerships with on-the-ground activists and organizers, and we follow their lead. We innovate, experiment and embrace professional and organizational growth. We invest in people and we invest in how we work, because our vision calls on us to build the most effective, global, diverse, and talented team possible.
We highly value a diverse team and an equitable work environment where every member of our team is set up to thrive. We have taken steps to nurture this environment including an Anti-Oppression Leadership Team that leads work to transform injustice within the organization and in our campaigning work. We expect all team members to take responsibility for co-creating an equitable work community where everyone is able to do impactful, world-changing work. We offer benefits including additional sick days for parents and caregivers, flexible working hours, and professional development stipends. We review our policies and practices for equity frequently.

CoachBright is a social mobility movement. We are working towards a day where no young person’s background determines their future. Still now, in 2022, there is a postcode lottery. We are at a crisis point. If you are born poor, you are likely to stay poor. The chances of a young person succeeding in life are largely down to where they live.
Our mission is to instil young people with the independence and resilience to lead the lives they want. Now, more than ever, it is essential that young people from disadvantaged backgrounds get the support they need to achieve their goals. Covid-19 has further widened the gap between the pupils who have the income and resources to withstand educational disruption, during the past few months and those who don’t. That’s why we’re playing our part to narrow the gap and support a generation of pupils to be their best.
We are young, ambitious and optimistic, and are looking for someone as passionate as we are about creating a socially just world. If you get out of bed to transform the life chances of young people and want to shape and grow a values-driven social mobility organisation, we would love to hear from you.
