Based in Manchester.
Four days per week; two-year, fixed-term contract.
Starting salary £21,563 (£26,954 pro rata).
Global Justice Now is looking for an energetic and resourceful organiser to help facilitate activism and deliver education, training and campaign events in the north of England. The postholder will be the only staff member based in Manchester, but will work closely with the London-based activism team and with our Scottish office to help ensure our countrywide network of local groups and associated activists are an effective force for social change in the world.
We’re looking for someone with enough experience of activism themselves to be able to advise people trying to organise local campaigning and problem-solve with existing groups. The role will not solely be focused on helping Global Justice Now groups or helping to set new ones up, but also on assisting specifically anti-TTIP networks, local coalitions around climate justice and other activities related to our broad areas of work. We are also keen to ensure we deepen the knowledge and analysis of the world held by activists through specific political education events.
Recruiting a Manchester-based staff member is part of our plan to regionalise support for activism, reflecting a shift towards more grassroots mobilisation and movement-building in our organisational strategy. We are currently in the process of negotiating office space with a like-minded organisation.
To apply, please fill in the application form and equal opportunities monitoring form below, and email it firstname.lastname@example.org by 9am on Thursday 3 September.
Interviews will be held on Thursday 10 September in Manchester.
If you wish to speak to someone about the nature or requirements of the role, please phone the office on 020 7820 4900. Some of the relevant staff will be on holiday for parts of August, so please allow enough time to account for this.
