About Positive Money
Positive Money is a think tank and campaign organisation that works to reimagine our money and banking system for the benefit of all and our planet. We are part of a growing and collective force for economic systems change. We have been working in the UK since 2010, Brussels since 2019 and the US since 2021. Our mission is to reform money and banking to build a fair, democratic and sustainable economy. To achieve this we produce groundbreaking research and policy, penetrate the media, influence politicians, and inform and mobilise the public behind people-powered campaigns.
About the role
Since 2018 Positive Money Europe has been raising awareness of the power, injustices and impacts of our broken financial system - from inequality to climate change to unaffordable housing - and campaigning for and winning reform. Building and mobilising a grassroots movement is a central part of Positive Money’s strategy for achieving lasting systemic change. We believe in empowering the public to demand a system that produces affordable homes for everyone, well-paid sustainable jobs and democratic public institutions that work for community wellbeing, instead of profits for banks and corporations.
In just two years, Positive Money Europe has run a major citizen engagement campaign in France, Spain, Italy, The Netherlands and Germany, carried out actions in front of the Belgian national central bank, launched a petition in France and Spain, and grown its mailing list by 60% and its social media following by 67%. Now we want to take our campaigning to the next level by building a stronger foundation for digital campaigning focussed on clearer communication and impactful mobilisation and organising.
You will be passionate about empowering the public to change our economic system; a natural communicator; and a strategic thinker keen to build smart strategies for winning change. You thrive in a digital world - online campaigning and innovative digital tactics excite you, and you strongly believe in data driven decision-making.
You are a people’s person, you believe in investing time and resources into your team as well as receiving and incorporating constructive feedback from the people you manage. You don’t mind getting your hands dirty and jumping in with hands-on work where needed.
You don’t need a background in money or banking work, but you should be excited about developing campaigns and content that are engaging, appeal to people’s hearts and minds, and stand out from the crowd. You understand that the financial system is rooted in a wider system of structural inequalities, oppression, power imbalances and ideologies; that systems change is complex and multi-faceted, and absolutely necessary to achieve our vision.
The Positive Money Europe team works closely together, so you’ll enjoy getting involved in different aspects of an organisation, juggling multiple projects and supporting your colleagues. You could come from any background or walk of life, and share our commitment to an inclusive and diverse team, and our culture of mutual goodwill, open and compassionate communication, trust, proactiveness and transparency.
The Senior Digital Campaigner/Head of Digital will be supported and line managed by the Deputy Executive Director, and responsible for the delivery of Positive Money’s public facing campaigns work and communication to Positive Money Europe's growing supporter base.
