Job Description

About us
We are a charity dedicated to ensuring that people most impacted by injustice are leading campaigns that affect their lives, from better housing to fairer treatment of migrants to LGBTQ+ rights. Our mission is to support people to run effective campaigns that challenge injustice. We do this by running campaign training programmes that help people develop the skills, confidence and community to change things that matter to them. In our trainings, we prioritise people from communities directly impacted by injustice. In response to the urgent needs created by Covid-19 we are taking our training online and need an experienced trainer to join our internal team of trainers.

The successful applicant will join our existing team of trainers providing accessible campaigning training to people most directly impacted by injustice in this country and globally, such as low-income/working-class people, people of color, disabled people, LGBTQ+ people and migrants/refugees/asylum seekers.
