TTIP Campaigner at War on Want
Contract: Fixed term post - one year contract
Salary: £32,138.92 plus 6% non-contributory employer's pension
Based at: War on Want's head office, 44-48 Shepherdess Walk, London N1 7JP
War on Want works to challenge the root causes of poverty, inequality and injustice through partnership with social movements in the South and by running hard-hitting campaigns in the UK in support of radical change. The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) is a comprehensive free trade and investment treaty currently being negotiated – in secret – between the European Union and the USA. TTIP threatens labour rights, food safety rules, banking safeguards and our public services such as the NHS.
We are looking for a dynamic campaigner to run our campaign to defeat TTIP. This is an exciting opportunity to work on a fast moving and live campaign. This year is crucial. The secret negotiations have begun, public outrage is growing. The stakes could not be higher.
