We are recruiting a versatile remote organiser who is excited to bring Living Rent out of Glasgow and Edinburgh. You will work closely with Living Rent’s members from across Scotland (notably in Fife, Lanarkshire, West Lothian, the Highlands, Aberdeen and Dundee), with the Living Rent team in Scotland and with ACORN team throughout the UK
We are looking for someone keen to work with a young organisation and passionate about member-run organisations and determined to build working-class power. Experience in training, community education, customer facing work, workplace organising, recruitment and campaigning are welcome though not mandatory. We are primarily looking for someone to show enthusiasm, curiosity, willingness to learn and a commitment to social justice as training will be provided. This role may suit someone who wishes to move into a role which empowers members to plan direct actions and strengthens Living Rent as a member-led union. Housing insecurity is a stressful thing to live with, you must be willing to work with people experiencing this stress and be able to be sensitive in supporting them, yet still able to champion our fighting approach.
We are very excited to continue growing our organisation and hope this job is for YOU!
