Job Title: Head of Training
Working For: NEON
Salary: £39,940. Possible to increase by max. 2 increments a year up to £45,058
You will play an essential role in ensuring NEON’s social movement trainings are delivered and managed to a high standard. You will work closely with the Director of Movement Building, other NEON staff and our associate trainer pool to develop and manage our training programmes; primarily our national course Movement Builders, which skills up activists, campaigners and organisers with strategic movement analysis and brings them together to explore collective action. This role will sit alongside the Head of Organising and Head of Coaching roles, under the umbrella of the new Movement Building Hub. In addition to this, you will work across NEON to develop new content and embed liberatory training approaches across other trainings run by NEON.
You will also play a key role in developing and enacting the Movement Building Hub’s strategy inside NEON, working collaboratively with our Organising and Coaching teams to design and implement tailored and effective social movement support packages. We’re looking for an experienced trainer and project manager, committed to decolonising training spaces and empowering those fighting for social, environmental and economic justice.
The New Economy Organisers Network (NEON) is a not-for-profit company with 12 staff members, growing to up to 15 staff by the end of this year. We also work with a range of contractors and Associates and incubate other organisations. We are a network of over 1,600 UK organisers from different trade unions, grassroots groups, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), faith-based campaigns, civil society groups and movements from across the country.
We run powerful trainings and support campaigns to help progressives win social, economic and environmental justice. We offer movements a range of support, from helping people lead movements like Just Treatment (organising patients to fight for the NHS), through to working with our members on over 2,500 media bookings on the UK’s biggest TV and radio channels. We’re ambitious and the team is agile, fast paced and committed to actually changing things.
