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.

      • Everyday Activism, a community-based training programme for individuals or groups who are interested in campaigning on an issue that impacts them who have done little to no campaigning in the past.
      • Research and Development, a new programme designed to let us test new and innovative programmes, including our trainer development programme.

      1. Managing and producing resources for our training programmes including curriculum schedules, handouts, case studies, session plans

      4. Managing relationships with freelance trainers who help deliver our UK programmes 
      5. Supporting the Head of Training with smooth delivery of our UK trainer development programme including preparation, logistics, outreach and evaluation
      6. Supporting the smooth running of the training room at the bootcamp residentials including managing resources needed, overseeing who is in the room and anything else that comes up in an intensive training
      7. Liaising with and booking external trainers as needed.

Role Purpose

      • Managing and producing unified resources across our programmes 
      • Ensuring curriculum coherence across our programmes
