War on Want is a dynamic, radical organisation working in the UK and with partners around the world to fight poverty and defend human rights, as part of the movement for global justice. We mobilise support, and build alliances, to fight for human rights, and raise public awareness of the structural causes of poverty and injustice, empowering people to take action for change. We work in partnership and active solidarity with grassroots groups around the world.

War on Want works on a range of thematic issues, including food sovereignty, extractive mining, workers’ rights and trade justice. In recent years, War on Want has called for a radical Global Green New Deal to address the multiple global crises of climate, inequality and poverty, connecting across the organisations campaign themes.

We are recruiting for an exciting new role to help us build the collective power of our supporters, networks, organisations and the movements we are part of to campaign for a radical Global Green New Deal.

We have 4 key approaches to building power to demand change: deepening political awareness of our supporters and key audiences on the root causes of poverty, inequality and injustice; developing tactics and opportunities for offline and online campaigning; developing strategies and plans to engage with new audiences; mobilisation activities to build the power of our supporters to campaign for change.

We are looking for someone aligned with our vision, our work and our practice who can: inspire others to participate and join our movements for change; has the insight and skills to develop both online and offline mobilisation and activism activities to build and support our campaigning; and who can help us identify how we can both deepen and expand our connections across social justice movements. You could have developed your skills working with grassroots community organising, with movement building on social or climate justice related issues, or in a campaigning organisation. If you are interested in joining with a radical campaigning organisation, then this could be the role for you!
