As we move into a period of huge economic turbulence and uncertainty, the New Economics Foundation is looking for Director of Campaigns and Engagement to drive our work and lead us in building effective alliances with partners and supporting a powerful movement for change. We are looking for someone exceptional that can develop effective advocacy and campaign strategies, and use our strength in organising, to build pressure and support for ambitious policy change.
Working with the Chief Executive, other Directors and our Heads of teams, you will drive our approach to winning change, help design and fundraise for ambitious programmes of work that can deliver impact and ensure we successfully engage externally.
You will need a strong track record of campaigning, advocacy or organising, a keen sense of how change happens and strong relationships with partners across politics, civil society, trade unions and business. And you will need a passion for economic and environmental justice and a belief that we can make change happen.
