What we expect a Creative Campaigner to do
Work alongside our design team, clients and partners to deliver creative communications - from writing punchy emails and moving film scripts, to directing a photoshoot, to producing beautiful posters, social media graphics and videos that cut through the noise.
Produce campaign actions - organising petition hand-ins, getting people to show up to rallies, seeing through creative stunts like projecting slogans onto buildings
Organise with grassroots campaigners - to develop leaders and spokespeople for the causes we champion
Support in the management of projects and campaigns - that means getting stuck into the behind the scenes admin from start to finish, knowing your budgets and deadlines, and actively engaging in project reports and reviews

Use a variety of online and offline tools to achieve your aims - always willing to adapt and learn in response to different projects, issues, partners and audiences
What that means in practice
Within a week, or even a day, you might find yourself working on the following.
Writing persuasively: crafting email and social copy that cuts through the noise, working with designers to brief in creative content
Helping to organise a parliamentary briefing: building ‘write to your MP’ actions, helping to develop the materials that will be presented on the day
Supporting film and video production: from writing scripts, scoping locations, supporting and collaborating with freelancers at shoots and feeding into editing processes
Wrangling data: using Google Sheets to understand all sorts of data, whether it’s relating to policy, analysing metrics from an ad campaign or carefully transferring supporter data from one system to another
Helping to coordinate stunts & live-streams that cut through: working with the team to programme an action, drive turn out through email and social media, support peer-to-peer texting and community organising, and plan and produce creative that stops journalists in their tracks
And all the while... communicating openly with the team, receiving and responding to feedback, being ready to jump on another project or campaign to support a colleague
