Job Alert: Platform campaigning job, deadline 6th June

From here.
London-based, but MCFly asked about that and was told –

“We’d me be more than happy to discuss arrangements with people about where they live, in proximity to London, and we’d urge people to apply and then they’d be in a position to discuss this at interview.
“Not all of us live in London, currently, but staff are expected to be in the office during (most) work days – frequency depending on what they are working on
“But, yes, definitely pass on to people, and they can call and chat it over before they apply, if they like. “

Platform is recruiting a new campaigner.

2.5 days per week – 20 hours (flexible) approx £31,000pa pro rata (based on a 40 hour week)

Deadline: noon on Monday 6th June.


Platform is looking for a new campaigner to work across a number of Platform projects. The successful candidate should be motivated to work towards climate justice, to democratise our energy system, and overcome oppression. They will work as part of a team on several Platform projects. These may include Fossil Free Culture, Voices that Shake!, Switched On London, building energy democracy, and mobilising to stop Europe’s new fossil fuel pipelines.

This is a flexible role. We expect the post-holder to particularly focus on one or more of the following:

  • Outreach and movement-building
  • Generating mass-media coverage to influence and reframe debates
  • Producing social media content and email campaigns, and engaging audiences online
  • Targeting and influencing decision-makers.

Depending on the candidate’s strengths and motivation, the role can develop to emphasise one or more of these aspects.

In any case, the campaigner will be responsible for:

  • Producing and researching campaign materials
  • Organising events
  • Fundraising and reporting to funders
  • Representing Platform at public events


How to apply:

Please download the job description and person specification with details of how to apply.

If you would like to discuss the role or the application process informally, email us on (you can ask us to ring you!).  If you’re unsure about something in the person specs, please give us a call!

Application Deadline:

Please submit your application by noon on Monday 6th June.

We are aiming to conduct a 1st round of interviews on 13th and 14th June, and a second round on 20th or 21st June.

Platform strives to apply equal opportunities principles both in its recruitment and in its work. We oppose all forms of discrimination on the grounds of colour, race, nationality, ethnic or national origin, gender, sexuality, marital status, religion, age or disability.

The successful candidate will be selected on the basis of how well they fit the person specification, as judged by their application materials and their interview performance.

We would particularly like to encourage applications from people of colour / black or brown people, who are currently under-represented in Platform. Where two or more candidates are judged to be of equal merit, priority may be given to a BME candidate as these groups are less well represented.

Due to the ridiculous and racist border restrictions in the UK, Platform is unfortunately unable to arrange work permits for applicants without UK residency.
