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

You’ll enjoy this role if you're passionate about working with people to tackle injustice.

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.
