RESULTS UK is recruiting for a dynamic, efficient Campaigns Coordinator (5 days per week) on a permanent contact. This role will work to help deliver successful grassroots and public campaigning across our issue areas; support the expansion of our network of grassroots campaigners across the UK; maintain and build our presence on social media; and to provide general administrative support to our Campaigns team.
2017 is another big and busy year for RESULTS. At the UK level, we seek to influence the Department for International Development to contribute substantial new funds for global education. We will also be campaigning in the UK and globally to ensure that donors have the policies in place to ensure that health services in newly middle-income countries don’t suffer as the go through transition out of donor support. And we are working to increase the government’s commitment to essential research and development to combat the increasing threat of antimicrobial resistance, especially as it relates to TB. Other campaigns on health, education and economic opportunities will be expected to arise at key moments during 2017 and beyond.
To help achieve these campaigns, our grassroots campaigners have a big role to play in ensuring there is adequate political will among policy makers to live up to the ambitions of the Global Gaols to achieve a world free of poverty by 2030.
We’re looking for someone with a proactive, flexible and efficient approach who can complete our small Campaigns Team and act as a friendly, professional support to our grassroots groups across the country. You’ll have a passion for ending global poverty, great communication skills, experience of social media, and a willingness to step up to help deliver successful campaigns in any way you can. The post will be ideally suited for an individual with some work experience at the beginning of a career in international development, campaigning, advocacy or communications. Having a can-do attitude that includes willingness to do the more administrative aspects of the role is essential. This post will provide good opportunities for developing communications, project management and advocacy skills; an understanding of key international development issues; research and writing for advocacy; and experience of working with Parliament and parliamentarians.
Note that as a member of the Campaigns Team, the post-holder will be working closely with members of the Parliamentary and Policy Advocacy Teams in order to deliver on RESULTS’ overarching objectives: being generous with the sharing of knowledge, advocacy expertise, and contacts while working in a collaborative environment is essential.
