We created Campaign Bootcamp to increase diversity and excellence in the campaigning world. Over the last 18 months demand for our work has increased rapidly as more and more people are discovering a passion to make change happen. To meet this demand we’ve built an ambitious plan to grow our organisation to a point where anyone, anywhere will be able to learn how to challenge injustice and inequality. This plan involves launching new programmes, building excellent resources and forging partnerships.

You'll love working here if you get excited by uncertainty, figuring out smart solutions and taking risks. We don’t spend our time writing long unnecessary procedures, or doing loads of paperwork. We’re a lean, fast moving workplace. 

If you'd like to join the team check out the roles we're currently recruiting for below:

As part of our plan to increase our work tackling injustice and inequality we are looking to hire a trainer to deliver campaign training and support campaign groups in communities across Yorkshire. This role will be part of a new project we are currently launching aimed at supporting groups within marginalised communities to campaign on issues that affect them.

The key responsibilities of the role will be:

  • Outreaching to and recruiting community campaign groups for our new training programme. You will do this by:
    • Researching, networking and meeting with both larger organisations and community groups
    • Running introductory sessions with community groups
  • Support groups to run campaigns that win. You will do this by:
    • Delivering trainings based on Campaign Bootcamp’s new programme curriculum
    • Coaching and supporting community leaders

    • Organising the logistics and delivery of one-off and ongoing events
    • Keeping to agreed budgets
    • Being the point of liaison for suppliers and stakeholders
    • Making use of our systems to manage contact information and monitoring and evaluation

About you
You’ll enjoy this role if you're passionate about working with people to tackle injustice. You believe that training and education should be done in a way that breaks down barriers and supports people on the margins to campaign on issues that affect them. You believe campaigning needs to go beyond the usual suspects and believe in the power of communities to know best when it comes to decisions affecting their lives.

You are a confident, pro-active and enthusiastic individual - a people person, who naturally forms and builds relationships. You'll be highly organised and enjoy working independently, getting stuck into new things and giving things a go.

  • Experience coaching or mentoring
  • Experience running events
  • Experience working remotely (i.e., use of technology)
  • Experience working in the Yorkshire region

As part of this role will involve working within marginalised communities, we are keen to receive applications from people within those communities.
