Citizens UK is the home of Community Organising in the UK and home to 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, Peterborough, Nottingham, Birmingham, Wales, Manchester, Essex, Leicester, Somerset, Preston, 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 Communities Together) and community sponsorship with Communities for Ukraine and Sponsor Refugees add depth to our impact in the communities we operate in. We enable local campaigns to grow into large-scale social change projects such as the Living Wage Foundation with a network of over 13,000 accredited employers across the UK.
Citizens UK has a growing team of professional Community Organisers, Projects, and other support staff. We are always looking out for experienced and committed individuals and vacancies come up regularly.
Citizens UK is committed to being an inclusive employer. Like many employers, we are on a journey and are actively working towards our DEI strategy with our workforce, alliance members and partners.
Many of our employees enjoy flexible and hybrid working, and we are open to adapting\flexing our roles where possible to embrace a diverse workforce. If you are interested in a vacancy and wish to discuss flexible working, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applicants must have the right to work in the UK as Citizens UK is unable to sponsor visa applications.
Our Organisers work in the community and their employment is subject to a satisfactory standard\enhanced DBS check.
