We are recruiting for a new Communications and Campaigns Officer

Friday 02 March 2018

Why join us?
Would you like join a dynamic organisation that is behind a growing movement of people building genuinely and permanently affordable homes?
The CLT movement is growing fast as more and more people are feeling the impact of the housing crisis and are deciding to take matters into their own hands.
CLTs and the wider community-led housing movement have gained momentum over recent years. The sector is now on the cusp of significant expansion and there is real potential to move it from a niche emerging market into the mainstream. Our goal is for anyone, anywhere, to be able to set up a CLT. Central to achieving that is our work to raise awareness of the opportunity for CLTs and create a supportive national and local funding and policy environment. 
About the Role
This role will play a key role in supporting the National CLT Network’s core communications, campaigns and events activities. The challenges are many and varied, including:
  • Working closely with the Director to deliver our prestigious and acclaimed advocacy campaigns and working closely with the Communications Manager to develop and deliver our strategic communications strategy;
  • Taking a leading role in the external communications work for the EU-funded North West Europe project, coordinating the project’s advocacy campaigning work and communications work and working closely with colleagues across the region;
  • Working closely with all team members to develop and deliver a range of events both in England and Wales, and in North West Europe.
About You
This is an exciting and career-enhancing role. It could be the right opportunity for a range of potential candidates. Your motivations might be many and varied – from wanting to develop your career in communications and/or policy, to having a passion for housing or communities, or because you want more responsibility and strategic management opportunities. Whatever your motivations the National CLT Network would like to hear from you. Particularly if you: enjoy a variety of tasks and challenges, are creative, enterprising, flexible and ambitious and are able to work with both the big picture and deliver on the detail. You will also feel strongly about the importance of social justice and the difference that CLTs and community-led housing can make.
