Job Details

Do you want to join a growing, social-purpose agency, and work with some of the best non-profit organisations in the world, on issues from climate change, to human rights, to corruption and conflict? Apply now to join di:ga’s Advocacy and Campaigns team.

About di:ga: We are a small team of dedicated strategists and communicators, who feel privileged and excited to work with non-profit organisations and other good causes to drive change. Our core offering includes strategy, media relations, digital and social media, and writing and editing. We work mostly on international issues, including climate change and resources, inequality and economic development, refugees and asylum, and human rights. Clients include 350.org, Chatham House, Greenpeace, Oxfam, Oxford University and the UK Anti-Corruption Coalition.

About the Advocacy and Campaigns team: The Advocacy and Campaigns team helps clients understand the targets they want to reach, and develop strategies to influence them - drawing on a broad range of tactics. We help translate complex policy into actionable asks, and often lead our work with coalitions or where campaign planning is key.

About the role: Advocacy and Campaigns Associates develop and deliver excellent communications, campaigns and influencing strategies for clients. They research, map and help clients glean insights into their targets, and develop the arguments and tactics to shift them. They take the lead on some contracts, and collaborate on others. They also assist in the day-to-day running of the company, including planning and business development.

Person specification: You will be a strategic thinker and solid all-rounder, with a good understanding of how the media, social media and advocacy can be used to drive change. You will be able to ask the right questions to get to the heart of an issue, and take complex arguments and craft them in a way that makes politicians, journalists or the public take notice.

You might have previous experience in politics; in NGO campaigning, advocacy or comms; or at an agency. di:ga will support you to gain experience and deliver across a range of areas - whether developing new insights into the types of messages that will cut through with British MPs; coming up with an idea for a media story and selling it into journalists; or developing a social media toolkit for a coalition of NGOs.
