We are looking for a committed and proactive individual with demonstrable knowledge & experience of co-production and participatory approaches and who is passionate about tackling poverty. You will have experience of working with people from diverse backgrounds who have lived experience of poverty and inequality, including black and minoritised communities, people with disabilities, mental or physical health conditions.

This is a new Participation Officer role which will take forward Z2K’s ambition of deepening the involvement of people with lived experience of poverty in our work. The insights of experts by experience drive and shape our work; we seek to work with people with lived experience to increase their influence over decisions that affect their lives and ensure their voices and experiences are listened to and acted on. 

The post holder will lead our work to involve experts by experience in our policy development, influencing and campaigns. In addition, you will support our work across the organisation to support the meaningful engagement of experts by experience across other activities including governance and service design.

Z2K is an equal opportunity employer. People with lived experience of poverty, from Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds, LGBTQIA+ individuals and people with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply. We welcome evidence of experience from both work and non-work settings such as volunteering and personal life.
