*New deadline for applications – 11am on January 31*

Set up by campaigns and local housing groups from across the city, we’ve achieved a lot in the past four years. We’ve supported scores of our members to win improvements to their housing situation by standing up for their rights and taking direct action. We’ve linked up with other housing movement organisations to force the Tory government to announce an end to no-fault evictions and a temporary eviction ban during 2020. Now we’re hiring two new roles to support our members to organise renters and build the power we need to transform housing.

The pay for both roles is £28,420 per year. Both roles are 30 hours per week, usually spread over 4 days and include holiday, parental subsidy, pension  contribution and £1,200 per year towards counselling or similar well-being services. See the full job descriptions for full terms and conditions.

The deadline for applications for both roles has now been extended due to Covid-related staff capacity issues to 11am on January 31

Organising and Training Coordinator

The Organising and Training Coordinator is a strategic role responsible for the ongoing development and implementation of the LRU’s approach to organising renters and building power. This will include working with branches and staff on specific projects and campaigns and supporting evaluation and strategising processes. The Organising and Training Coordinator will also lead on the development and delivery of the LRU’s training and political education program and will play a key role in the management of the LRU’s staff team.

New Branches Organiser

The role of the New Branches Organiser is to support the emergence, growth and collective leadership of new LRU groups and their successful development into full LRU branches. This will include facilitating leadership from a broad base of renters, with a particular emphasis on working with those hardest hit by the housing crisis. We are currently supporting the growth of LRU groups in several boroughs including Tower Hamlets, Haringey and Brent.
