We mobilise people in the UK for change, and act in solidarity with those fighting injustice, particularly those in the global south.
We are looking for someone with substantial experience of developing policy and running campaigns to join our team.
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 aid 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.
If this sounds right for you, we’d really like to hear from you.
