Reporting to: Lead Organiser
Nurses United is a campaign organisation that builds power for nurses, their patients and our NHS. That’s why we’re excited to announce that we’re recruiting a new Organiser, on a fixed-term contract, to join our team and help us deliver our campaigns in 2021.
Our work centres around organising nurses and the public to:
- Build an Anti-racist NHS with our Nurses of Colour network and Anti-racist Framework
- Fight for pay justice with our 15% pay rise campaign
- Campaign for protective equipment and Safe Staffing ratios for nurses to carry out their roles safely
So now we are looking for someone who is a skilled and experienced organiser or thinks they have the transferrable skills to learn the role! You’ll work closely with our Lead Organiser and frontline nurses from diverse backgrounds and experiences. You need to: be committed to building the power of social movements; have the ability to talk to and build trust with a diverse range of people including members, our stakeholders and volunteers; have experience campaigning online, and have a commitment to fighting oppression in all its forms.
If this sounds like you, what are you waiting for???
We are committed to providing equal opportunities for everyone regardless of their background. We acknowledge that people from certain backgrounds are under-represented in progressive movements and we’re committed to doing what we can to correct this. We are particularly keen to receive applications from women, people of colour; people with disabilities; people who identify as being LGBTQIA+; people with mental health conditions; people who identify as neurodivergent and people who identify as working-class or have done so in the past. You do not need to be a nurse to apply for this position.
Closing Date: 28 June 2021
The Organiser will start as soon as possible and by no later than 2nd August 2021, and end 6 months later with the strong possibility of extension.
Key dates: You’ll need to be available for an interview on the 7th July 2021 by Zoom call
