We leverage rapid online, social and media campaigning tactics to put issues affecting women on the agenda for decision-makers. We also work in partnership with service providers, policy experts, and people with lived experience to change the policies that change women’s lives.

Since launching our first campaign almost 5 years ago the Fair Agenda community has helped win important changes for women's safety, economic security and reproductive healthcare access.


About the Role

We are seeking an experienced and driven campaigner to join our team as either a Senior Campaigner or Campaign Manager.

The successful applicant will join a small but mighty team, and drive campaigning in a nimble and impact-focused organisation. They will work across a range of issues, including: addressing gendered violence, reducing women’s economic inequality, improving women’s representation and defending reproductive rights.

They would be responsible for managing some campaigns from start to finish; and would work closely with the Executive Director and partner organisations to develop campaigns.

They would also have the opportunity to take an active leadership role in the development of areas of organisational strategy, and to drive Fair Agenda’s success in one or more other areas, which could include: member engagement, member fundraising, narrative shifting, traditional media coverage, or member development and leadership.
