Help us Campaign for Change in Scotland!
Poverty and inequality are the greatest challenges Scotland faces. The Poverty Alliance is working hard to show how we can change the debate about, and ultimately solve, poverty. An opportunity has arisen to join our team and help us achieve our vision of a Scotland without poverty.
We are looking for an experienced Campaigns Officer who can help us take forward our collective campaigns against poverty in Scotland.
This post, initially funded until March 2021, will be responsible for bringing together the Poverty Alliance’s key campaigns, ensuring we build support and increase impact. We are looking for someone who can support our members and community organisations engage in campaign activities, particularly as part of our Challenge Poverty Week initiative.
The successful candidate will join the Alliance's small policy and campaigns team and will provide campaigns support for a wide range of activities. You will have experience of campaigning for economic and social change and of working with community groups and individuals with little campaigns experience. You’ll understand the importance of digital as well as traditional campaign strategies, and how these can be used to support social change.

Interviews: Thursday 16th January 2020
