Citizens UK

About us

Citizens UK is the national centre of Community Organising in the UK and home of the Living Wage Foundation.

Citizens UK organises communities to act together for power, social justice and the common good. We have diverse civil society alliances ('Chapters') in London, Milton Keynes, Nottingham, Birmingham, Wales, Manchester, Essex, Leicester, Somerset, Brighton & Hove, Leeds and Tyne & Wear. 

We develop the leadership capacity of our members so they can hold politicians and other decision-makers to account on the issues that matter to them. Our projects PACT (Parents and Community Together) and Sponsor Refugees add depth to our impact in the communities we operate in.

Citizens UK has a growing team of professional Community Organisers, Projects, and other support staff. We are always looking out for talented and committed individuals and vacancies come up regularly.

Many of our employees enjoy flexible working and we are open to adapting\flexing our roles where we can to embrace a diverse workforce.

Citizens UK is committed to being an inclusive employer. We value our diverse workforce and encourage those with an interest in our roles to apply, regardless of whether they meet all the required criteria. We invest in our employees and support them to develop the skills and knowledge required to deliver their role. We particularly welcome applications from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic candidates to represent the communities we work in. 

Please note that applicants must have the right to work in the UK in order to apply.

Our Organisers work in the community and their employment is subject to a satisfactory standard\enhanced DBS check.

9 / 10
Asking on the job related questions not only shows you the candidate's experience, but also how they think. The fact that CVs aren't looked at and that they are anonymised makes it feel much more fair.

The questions asked seemed very relevant and were fun to answer.
