Job Title: Supporter Recruitment and Engagement Officer
Working For: Power for People
Salary: £22,000-£26,000 per annum, pro rata, depending on experience

We are Power for People, an organisation formed in 2017 to help tackle climate change. We have two aims: for the UK to rapidly transition to 100% renewable energy and for local communities to benefit from this great transition. We achieve our aims by engaging and mobilising grass-roots support across the country and focusing this support on Parliament and the government.
Are you passionate about campaigning to stop climate change? Do you believe that building and mobilising grass-roots momentum is essential to get it done? Are you great at engaging people and inspiring them to join a cause and take action? If so, then we really want to hear from you!
We are looking for a Supporter Recruitment and Engagement Officer who will lead and organise our work to recruit new activists and inspire and enable them to engage with their MPs in support of our campaigns.
About the Role
You will be responsible for developing, implementing and running our outreach work. Your objective will be to recruit large numbers of individual supporters. You will also be responsible for engaging with existing supporters, keeping them up to date on our campaigns and inspiring them to take action.
You will take a lead in devising ways (and content) to engage and recruit new audiences online via our social media feeds and our website. Because we are a relatively new organisation you will often be starting with a blank canvass.
You will work closely with our supporters, getting to know how you can support them in lobbying their MPs. That could be anything from helping to organise an event to making sure they have the right fact sheets and are prepared for a surgery meeting with their MP.
You will work alongside our Director to develop our communications strategy and in doing so you will continually learn about Parliamentary and political campaigning.
