Introduction

We’re an independently registered non-profit organisation that campaigns for a Green New Deal in the UK. We strive to be a movement led organisation that provides an ‘organising hub’ to facilitate the efforts of ordinary people around the country who want to help campaign for change. We’re dedicated to stopping climate change in a way that improves peoples’ lives and builds a fairer, more democratic society and economy. 

We have a small but nimble team made up of two part-time Executive Directors, the Head of Organising and the National Organiser with the support of a coordinating group made up of volunteers.  This is very much a start-up and it’s hoped that any new addition to the team would help shape the direction, culture and vision of the organisation.

This means designing effective tactics and strategies that build our communication channels and activate people into local organising and mass mobilisations. It means working with our Hub Support team to empower local organisers to run effective digital strategies. And working within the comms team to amplify this work, to shift the Green New Deal conversation and inspire further action.

    • Maintaining and updating the Green New Deal UK WordPress site 

    • Content Creation: drafting and publishing social media content.

    • Testing and Improvement: Monitor and report on digital campaign performance 

  • Supporting local hubs to implement coordinated digital strategies and tactics

    • Providing tools, information and training to local Hubs to support their local organising 

    • Managing digital tools to ensure their effectiveness for local Hubs 

    • Creating the digital user journeys that funnel people into local action

 

 

Required:

  1. Demonstrated success in digital organising and campaigning 

  2. Great at problem-solving, implementing new ideas quickly with solid project management skills and great attention to detail. 

  3. A skilled writer, storyteller and visual communicator who also loves digging into the data to understand what’s driving target audiences to act.

  4. A strong understanding of the role compelling communications plays in delivering social change.

  5. Can effectively manage volunteers

  6. Committed to climate justice and building an equitable movement; has a passion to help create content that is reflective of diverse communities; willingness to have real talk about race, class, and other layers of oppression in a climate justice movement 

  7. Brings a spirit of positivity, flexibility, and resilience to situations with a lot of uncertainty 

 

 

Nice to have: 

  • Experience working with either Action Network, Nationbuilder or CiviCRM software

  • A track record of creating impactful written and visual communications, including basic graphic design skills

We are committed to providing equal opportunities for everyone regardless of their background. We acknowledge that people from certain backgrounds are under-represented in progressive movements and we’re committed to doing what we can to correct this. We are particularly keen to receive applications from Black, Asian and minority ethnic people; people with disabilities; people who identify as being LGTBQIA; people who have a mental health condition; and people who identify as working-class or have done so in the past.
