Red Pepper magazine needs a temporary Political Organiser: £25,000 per annum, two days a week pro rata (flexibility with days), based in our London office, for a minimum period of 6 months with the possibility of extension to 9 months. Deadline for applications: Monday 12 January 2015.
The role of Political Organiser has become vacant on a temporary basis while our current Political Organiser is on maternity leave from the end of February 2015. The role has existed for two years – the first year was supported by a crowd funding campaign and since then it has, in part, been sustained with grant funding. The role was created as part of an ambitious business plan to expand Red Pepper’s reach and political impact, while simultaneously boosting the project’s sustainable income streams by attracting more subscribers and regular donors.
The Political Organiser is very much the public face of Red Pepper and is responsible for developing and maintaining Red Pepper’s relationship with our key strategic constituencies, including trade unions, students groups, community activists and organisations. We are looking for someone that can act as a key ambassador for Red Pepper, build alliances with our constituencies and think strategically and creatively about raising the profile of Red Pepper.
To find out more about the background of the role email Jenny [@] redpepper.org.uk
Please find below links to the job description and person specification, the application form and our equal opportunities and monitoring form.
If you would like to apply, please complete and return the application form (a CV is not an acceptable alternative) by Monday 12 January. We would be grateful if you could also return the Equal Opportunities monitoring form, although you are under no obligation to do so.
Please send your application as an attachment in an email to Jennifer Nelson at Jenny [@] redpepper.org.uk with ‘Red Pepper Political Organiser (maternity)’ in the subject line.
