Youth Campaign Officer – Hanton Fellowship
We are Living Streets, the UK charity for everyday walking.
We want to create a nation where walking is the natural choice for everyday, local journeys; free from congested roads and pollution, reducing the risk of preventable illnesses and social isolation. We want to achieve a better walking environment and to inspire people of all generations to enjoy the benefits the simple act of walking brings.
Join us and together we will create a walking nation.
We are looking to hire our first ever youth-led campaigner! You will help create a voice for young people in our work to support our national Local Group campaign network.
You will work with us on new youth-facing projects where you will develop resources and processes for connecting with young people, both online and offline. You will also be involved in helping to organise our yearly events, such as the National Walking Summit and National Walking Month.
You’ll have the opportunity to make a real difference in a fast-paced organisation, listening to and supporting the voices of communities calling for change.
As this might be your first experience applying for a job or working in an office, we want to do all we can to make this process as welcoming as we can. Our team will be on hand to help you every step of the way. We’ve all struggled with that voice in our heads telling us we don’t have the right experience or the right face for the role. So please put that voice aside and get in touch with any questions you might have.
We acknowledge that we are over-represented of people from majority groups and under-represented of people from minority groups. This role is specifically targeting marginalised groups and is the aim of the project to do so; and as such we will consider how candidates who are underrepresented in our sector will help us to achieve the aims of the project. As a fair and inclusive employer we encourage applicants from a range of viewpoints and lived experiences.
