Job description

This is an exciting position for an exceptional communicator with digital skills who wants to take a leading role in a high-impact civil liberties campaign group. In this role, you’ll have the opportunity to boost the digital channels of one of the UK’s leading rights NGOs. We’re looking for someone with a vision to take our digital campaigns to the next level.

Big Brother Watch is a leading voice in the UK protecting privacy and has a strong track record of successful campaigns that defend civil liberties in the UK. We are seeking to significantly grow our reach, fundraising and campaigns through digital channels. The central objective of the role is to grow our public support and manage supporter engagement, by producing original, persuasive digital content and deploying it across multiple channels.

About you

Whether you’re a professional digital marketer with several years experience, or a highly digitally capable self-starter with excellent demonstrable campaign experience – if you’re passionate and committed to Big Brother Watch’s mission (this is important), we’d like to hear from you.

We are looking for a passionate all-rounder who understands the importance of excellent online communications in both a campaigning and fundraising context. The Digital Communications Officer will manage and have responsibility for all Big Brother Watch’s digital channels including websites, email and social media platforms.

The successful candidate will have experience working across a range of digital channels, including social media and video, website CMS, and email marketing platforms such as MailChimp. We are looking for someone who is able to produce creative graphics maintaining our brand identity; who is self-motivated, able to work by themselves as well as collaborate on campaigns with colleagues. You will be flexible, diligent, able to work under pressure and manage a busy and sometimes competing workload.

Big Brother Watch

Big Brother Watch is a UK civil liberties campaign group fighting for a free future. We’re determined to reclaim our privacy and defend freedoms at this time of enormous technological change. And we fight to win.

We’re a fiercely independent, diverse, non-partisan and non-profit group of campaigners and researchers who work to roll back the surveillance state and protect rights in parliament, the media or the courts if we have to. We publish unique investigations and pursue powerful public campaigns to pursue real change. We work relentlessly to inform and empower the public to collectively reclaim privacy, defend our civil liberties and protect freedoms for the future.

We’re a small, dedicated and highly effective team of five staff and five volunteers.
