Senior Campaigns Officer
Salary expectation: £36,291
Application deadline: Mon 27th August
This is a full-time role
Crisis is the national charity for homeless people. We know that homelessness is not inevitable. We know that together we can end it.
This is your opportunity to join an ambitious and high-performing Policy and Campaigns team. In 2017, we saw England’s biggest change to homelessness law in 40 years passed following our award-winning No-One Turned Away campaign. We launched our first campaign in Scotland to tackle the use of unsuitable temporary accommodation. And we secured manifesto commitments to end rough sleeping, and £20m in the budget to help homeless people access private rented accommodation.
But that’s not enough. That’s why in 2018, we’ve published a plan to end homelessness in England, Scotland and Wales for good. Now, it’s time for us to campaign to make sure it’s put into action. To end homelessness once and for all.
This is your chance to be a part of it.
About the role
As Senior Campaigns Officer, you’ll lead and project manage the development of Crisis’ influencing campaigns to end homelessness from inception to evaluation. As part of the campaigns team, you’ll undertake a range of campaigning activity, identifying campaign targets, mobilising supporters and using online and offline campaigning tools to achieve change.
To be successful in this role you will be an experienced campaigner with a successful track record of delivering high profile, public facing campaigns and political influencing aimed at national government. You’ll have understanding and experience of a range of online and offline campaigning tools and tactics, and outstanding communication skills, with the ability to communicate complex information in a persuasive manner. And you’ll be highly motivated to achieve change, and to help us end homelessness, once and for all.
As a member of the team you will have access to a wide range of employee benefits including:
– Interest free loans to purchase a train season ticket or a bike or for a deposit to secure a tenancy
– Mandatory pension scheme, with an employer contribution of 8.5%
– 25 days’ annual leave which increases with service to 28 days
Alongside our excellent staff benefits, we will support your ongoing development to build your skills, experience and career.
Deadline: Mon 27th August
