JOB DESCRIPTION

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. We run two programmes in the UK–a residential campaign training programme outside London and a community-based training programme in Yorkshire.

The Programme Coordinator is a member of the UK Bootcamps team, which is responsible for the successful production of Campaign Bootcamp’s residential training and its related activities, such as the annual community conference and the annual training for trainers. Your role will be to provide operational, outreach and alumni community support. To do this work, you will work alongside our Community Coordinator and report to the Programme Manager.

ROLE PURPOSE

  • To assist with operations and outreach for the residential Bootcamp programme
  • To ensure the smooth running of the London office

ABOUT YOU
To thrive in this role you’ll need:

  • Events coordination and administration experience. A key aspect of this role is organising logistics and operations for several events throughout the year. You’ll need to be able to demonstrate experience in managing everything from catering and accommodations to supporting the access requirements of participants to collecting evaluation data.
  • Good communication skills. This role will involve lots of communication, both internally and externally. You should be able to write a great email, create social media materials, and write an engaging article for our newsletter. As a member of a team that produces our UK programmes, you should also be able to communicate effectively and supportively with other staff.

It would also be great if you had:

  • Data management experience. We now have a large alumni community to keep track of and a body of work we want to continuously evaluate. Experience with Salesforce would be helpful.
  • Fundraising and budget management experience. You would be supporting the Programme Team with fundraisers and recording how the programme budget is spent.

We expect you to be:

  • Aware of how systemic injustice operates in our society (things like economic inequality, racism and heterosexism). We are looking for someone who is excited to be part of team that is exploring how best to confront those issues both in the workplace and in the wider society.
  • Detail-oriented and well-organised. In this job, the small details matter. You need to be someone who cares about the small stuff, who can keep track of a lot of important details at once and who sees tasks through to completion without prompting.  
  • Able to work independently and as part of a team. We expect you both to be able to communicate and coordinate effectively with other members of your team and to independently manage your own work, developing and maintaining a work plan for yourself. You should able to work well under pressure, prioritise a varied and fast-paced workload and deliver to deadline.
