Job description

We are delighted that you are interested in joining Engage Britain. This is an exciting new start-up charity with a distinguished Board of Trustees. We are building our team and are now searching for an exceptional Digital Content Editor.

We are a flexible employer and welcome applications from candidates who might want to work flexibly. We are particularly interested in hearing from candidates who are based across the UK. 

About us

Engage Britain will be focused on tackling our country’s most difficult and divisive challenges. Our mission is to show that we can be optimistic about the future by putting people at the heart of finding ways forward on the biggest challenges facing our country. We want to chart a new course for policymaking that bridges divides. We will support all those who wish to be involved – with all their different views, knowledge and experience – to develop ways forward that are politically sustainable and make a difference. We will also help them to make sure these ideas are listened to and adopted.

We will be working on challenges that matter to everyone, like funding of health and care; on challenges that we’ve taken too long to address, like opportunities for families living in poverty and protecting the environment; and on challenges that are seen as divisive, like immigration. We will ensure that those who are usually left out of making policies – but who often bear the brunt of them – are central to all discussions.
