Do you want to help us drive down poverty in Greater Manchester?
Greater Manchester Poverty Action (GMPA) is currently seeking someone with policy and research skills to strengthen our work advocating for changes to policy and practice across the city region. You will have experience of working in a similar role and be an integral part of our small but growing team. You will share our commitment to preventing and reducing poverty and be committed to helping us realise our vision of a Greater Manchester free from poverty where all residents can realise their potential and access the benefits of living in a diverse and vibrant city region.
GMPA is all about impact. From promoting the Real Living Wage to working with Greater Manchester’s councils on local poverty strategies and initiatives, our work has never been more needed.
The role will be home based, with the need to be able to travel within Greater Manchester and with the option of some office based working once we are able to return to our main base in central Manchester. Initially the role will last for 18 months.
The new role will inform local responses to poverty, including influencing local poverty strategies, the work of the Greater Manchester Combined Authority and local welfare provision. At a time when poverty is growing nationally, it has never been more important to identify what we can do locally to address the issue.
To apply please send a CV and covering letter by email (as attachments in word format) detailing why you are suitable to the role.
Your application should directly address the person specification detailed in the job description. Please also provide the names and contact details of two referees.
The deadline for applications for this role is 5pm on Thursday 11th March, 2021.
GMPA is an open and inclusive organisation. We welcome applications from people of all backgrounds, including people with lived experience of poverty.
