Salary: £30,290 - £35,665 FTE, plus London weighting allowance where applicable
Length of Contract:
Salary: Band 4: £30,290 - £35,665 FTE, plus London weighting allowance where applicable
Location: Flexible within the UK. While colleagues are currently working from home, we have offices in London and Newcastle upon Tyne and the post-holder would be expected to travel to one or other of these on a regular basis.
Contract and Hours: Permanent contract. 25-30 hours/week, ideally worked over 4 or 5 days.
Traidcraft Exchange works for trade and climate justice. In South Asia and East Africa, we support farmers, workers and artisans to benefit from more sustainable and equitable trade, and in the UK we advocate and campaign for changes to business practices and government policy. It is an exciting time to join our organisation. Following a strategic review, we are embarking on a process of change to shift power to groups in the global south, and to rethink the way we work in the UK. We are committed to equality and providing a diverse and inclusive workplace. We particularly welcome applications from those who are significantly underrepresented in our sector, including disabled people and individuals from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities.
As the Media Lead, you’ll join a talented and creative team of fundraisers, campaigners and digital communicators who are pioneering self-management, and developing new narratives around our work, while delivering to challenging targets on income, supporter recruitment and political change. You will be an enthusiastic and skilled communicator who will win media coverage for the issues we care about. One day you could be turning a report on business regulation into a pitch to the Financial Times, the next you could be drafting a press release to promote a tree-planting event to regional media, the third you could be helping plan a new campaign to improve wages for tea pickers. You’ll be a team player, ready and willing to work collaboratively and to embrace the challenges that this job will throw at you.
In return, we offer a competitive salary, flexible hours and location, friendly colleagues, and the knowledge that you could be shaping the future for people who currently lose out from global trade.
