About We Own It

We Own It is a voice for everyone who wants UK public services to be run for people, not profit.

We're a not-for-profit organisation that makes the case against privatisation and for public ownership. We believe people's lives would be better if the needs of communities came before profit for shareholders.

We show that public ownership is needed across public services, from railways to water, from care work to the NHS. We campaign to win victories against privatisation and share our message online and in the media.

We Own It is a small organisation with a big mission. You'll get to play a leading role at the heart of a dynamic campaigning organisation, help it grow and develop your skills.

About the role

We’re looking for an ambitious, dynamic and super organised Press and Communications Lead. You’ll need to be an excellent communicator and people person who can establish and maintain strong relationships with journalists and campaigners at a national and local level.

You’ll be comfortable managing competing priorities and juggling a wide range of tasks to get our message for public ownership across to a diverse and growing audience.

You’ll be an essential part of the We Own It team. As Press and Communications Lead, you’ll be central to raising our profile and increasing our supporter base, networks and impact in smart and innovative ways.

Deadline for applications: Monday, 18th October (midnight)

Interviews: Interviews for all candidates will take place via Zoom in the week commencing Monday, 25th October
