People in poverty pay more for essentials such as energy, insurance and credit. This is known as the poverty premium. Fair By Design (FBD) is dedicated to ending the extra costs of being poor. FBD is run by the Barrow Cadbury Trust but please note it is not a grants programme.
We are looking for a talented individual with a track record of successfully delivering communications and public affairs to join our team. Using your skills and experience you will help us to achieve our mission of eliminating the poverty premium by ensuring our communications are persuasive and impactful and that our messages are heard by policymakers and those in power. This will require knowledge of communications platforms and tools, as well as experience in providing a communications function for an organisation. In addition to developing and delivering our external-facing communications, you will also be part of a small team, where you’ll be responsible for our internal communications, from providing the secretariat to our Steering Group and supporting our evaluation work, to diary and event management
The Barrow Cadbury Trust is an independent charitable foundation seeking a just and peaceful society which recognises the equal value of all people. Largely working in partnerships with others, we use all our resources – our grants, our people and our name – to bring about structural change, thus increasing social justice and equality.
We have a strong commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion and we encourage applications from people with personal experience of the social justice and human rights issues we seek to address.
