Application Timeline - Deadline: 12:00 / midday Thursday 23rd February.
Green New Deal Rising is building a movement of young people from every part of the UK to fight for a response to the climate crisis that totally transforms our economy to deliver a safe climate and fairer society. We believe in people power, and through a combination of disrupting the political system and reaching into our communities, we plan to make the Green New Deal an era defining issue.
As we look to 2024, we plan to deliver the largest youth interventions in the next election. We’re looking for someone to work directly with our campaign team to build on our existing work by leading the development and delivery of our campaign strategies. So, we’re now looking for a savvy and driven campaigner to help us change the agenda and take sustained action over the next 18 months leading up to the next election.
You will hold and build relationships with organisers, partner groups, political allies and political campaigns. You will also gather intel and guide our organising programs to be strategic and generally support the organisation to be politically effective including strengthening our work with GND Champions in Parliament.
To excel in this role you will be a ‘thinker’ and a ‘doer’ - ready to run at new opportunities that present themselves with a moment's notice as well as crafting thoughtful long-term plans that build power for our movement. You will know the difference between influence and access - taking care that our campaign interventions are constantly building power for our movement and our demands. You will be a savvy political operator with a keen political sense and a hunger to get in the news cycle and change the agenda. And you’ll be excited to work independently - confident to push forward ideas and make them happen and happy ‘on the ground’ taking action and getting stuck in.
Location: UK, must be able to access London relatively easily for day trips
Contract length: Permanent (with 3 month probationary period)
Hours: 5 days a week - willing to work evenings and some weekends (with time off in lieu) and willing to travel across the country if required.
Start date: as soon as possible
Compensation: £36-40,000 depending on experience
Benefits: include company pension contributions, 25 days holiday per year + bank holidays and 5 days of ‘company shut down’ leave in December. Flexible working arrangements are possible (in terms of hours and location) - balancing the needs of the team with your needs. All staff have a personal development budget.
