Campaigns officer

Deadline for applications: 8pm on November 9.

Renters in LRU are building the power we need to transform the housing system. Campaign successes since we launched in 2018 include pressuring the Conservatives to announce an end to Section 21 alongside our allies, getting commitments on housing policy from 6 London councils through our #SideWithRenters campaign and pushing the government to introduce an evictions ban during the early stages of the pandemic. Campaigning for a rent freeze is a current campaign priority for the LRU. We are hiring a campaigns officer to support members to develop and implement strategic campaigns that can bring us closer to a housing system based on the principle of homes for people not profit.

The pay is £15,062 for 15 hours per week, usually spread over 2 days. 1 year fixed term contract. Well-being and parental/carer benefits included.
