Organisation: Act Build Change

We are an organisation that trains the next generation of community organisers. We believe that organised groups of ordinary people can and do change the world. We work with collectives to make our care-centred community organising methods accessible to the masses, focussing particularly on those closest to the issues. Our team has all supported victories for systemic change - from the local to the national. We are not a training agency. We are organising practitioners who build the power of others to win. All of our work centres on anti-oppressive practice - with accessibility, intersectionality and care as pillars of our work.

The Role:

We need someone exceptional to lead in designing and delivering our transformative organising training and coaching to an excellent standard. You will ensure we are building new partnerships, growing our membership and recruiting new leaders to our community. You will support teams and collectives on the ground to shape their strategy and win local and national victories across the country. You will work closely with the team to ensure our training and events are well attended, of quality and that we continue to work closely with communities experiencing oppression. This is a hands-on role. Every week you’ll design and facilitate workshops, coach organisers nationwide (online and in person) and participate in actions and campaigns.

Job Requirements:

You are someone who has worked as an organiser for at least five years. You have won campaigns, learnt from your losses and have been able to raise money as an organiser. You may already be familiar with trauma-informed approaches to organising, and practicing collective care in an organising context. If this part of the work is new, we will support your development in these practices.


The role is full-time with a salary range of £38,000-£43,000 (pro-rata; open to 4 days if preferred). The role is remote, with travel across the UK for workshop delivery. You must be within 3 hours (train, bus or driving) to central London and you will be asked to travel to London up to twice a month to work at our office in Bethnal Green.

Application Details:

The deadline for applications is 10am April 18th 2024. Interviews will be held during the afternoons of April 23rd, 24th and 25th. Expected start date will be in June.
