About the job

Global Justice Now is looking for someone with substantial experience of developing policy and running campaigns to join our team, working full or part-time (5 or 4 days a week) based in London or Edinburgh. This is a permanent position.

The policy and campaigns manager is a wide-ranging role. You will be responsible for developing policy positions and campaign planning, undertaking and overseeing research and maintaining relations with allies both here and overseas. You will be expected to undertake media interviews, write comment pieces, talk to journalists and local groups and activists.

From the outset you will expected to be the organisation’s lead expert on corporate power and accountability, with a current focus on transnational pharmaceutical corporations and related issues, but you will also have a broad range of policy skills and experience, and have some familiarity with Global Justice Now’s broader goals and areas of interest, able to work on other areas of Global Justice Now’s work.

You will have substantial experience of developing policy and running campaigns; excellent written and oral communication skills; the ability to work with people from different organisations and different countries at all levels; and a strong commitment to Global Justice Now’s mission.

If you are interested in the post and believe you meet our requirements, we would really like to hear from you.

We welcome applications from everyone irrespective of ethnicity, but as members of Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) groups are currently under-represented in the organisation we particularly encourage applications from BAME candidates. Appointment will be based on merit alone.

We offer 26 days holiday a year (pro-rata for part-time) and flexible working.

This post is based in our London or Edinburgh office. At present most staff are working from home, and we expect continuing high levels of home working in future.
