Recruiting a new Campaign Coordinator
Our Campaign Coordinator Vicky Egerton, who was working for the campaign part-time, has started a full-time job so has had to step back from the Living Wage Campaign role. We want to thank Vicky for her work on the campaign, particularly last year’s Living Wage Week when she secured an important meeting with the Co-operative Group, and the development of a strategy for engaging local authorities.
We are therefore recruiting a new part-time coordinator. Please share this vacancy with anyone who you think might be interested.
This is a crucial time for the campaign. GMPA’s work in other areas, such as on food poverty, is opening new doors to talk about a raft of anti-poverty measures with major local employers, including the Real Living Wage, so the new role will be more integrated into our wider anti-poverty work than ever before. There is scope to build up the campaign group and empower activists to go out and advocate for the Real Living Wage in their own places and organisations. We also want to start planning events and actions for an inspiring and impactful Living Wage Week.
The role is 2 days/week for the next six months, with a possible extension, or even development into a full-time role if the project is broadened out to focus on a wider range of good employment issues, and we want the Coordinator to work with us to explore those possibilities.
The deadline for applications is 10am on Friday May 24th, 2019, and interviews will take place on Monday June 3rd and the morning of Tuesday June 4th.
Please read the job description, download the application form, consider applying, and share this exciting opportunity through your networks.
