About the job

As a community organiser with ACORN, you will be responsible for recruiting, supporting and working with members to take action on issues affecting them and the communities they come from.

ACORN is a union in the community. Like any union our members pay membership dues so that they can have a sustainable independent organisation to fight for their interests.

Your daily work will involve:

Recruiting individual ACORN Members through door-knocking, social media and other means (door-knocking takes up around 50% of our organisers’ time);
Managing organising drives to build new and maintain existing ACORN branches, groups, and teams;
Identifying issues of common concern at the neighbourhood and wider level;
Identifying and supporting potential leaders to enable them to take on leadership roles in the organisation;
Supporting elected leaders to enable them to carry out their roles.
