About us

Crisis is the national charity for homeless people. We know that homelessness is not inevitable. We know that together we can end it. Our Senior Campaigns Engagement Lead plays a crucial role in helping us achieve this ambition.   
  
About the role  

As Crisis’ Senior Campaigns Engagement Lead, you will take a key strategic role within the Policy and Campaigns team to design and support the delivery of high profile campaigns, aimed at securing political change, with a particular focus on scaling up supporter engagement through our campaigns activity. 

This role is a permanent position. It will be based in our London office (E1 7SA) but will include regular, flexible homeworking.  

About you  

You’ll be a successful and driven self-starter, passionate about securing solutions to end homelessness and eager to achieve ambitious reform to government policy on this area.  

Knowledge of grassroots campaigning and how to affect change to government policy through the effective use of engagement strategies are essential, and experience of including people with lived experience in shaping and delivering campaigning activity is highly advantageous, as is knowledge of how to form sector partnerships to achieve change. You will also have line management experience.  

We believe diversity is a strength, and our aim is to make sure that Crisis truly reflects the communities we serve. We are actively working towards our organisation being a place where everyone can thrive and make their best contribution to our mission of ending homelessness for good. We know that the more perspectives, voices, and experiences we can bring to this work, the better. We particularly welcome applications from people who have lived experience of homelessness, and people from all marginalised groups, communities and backgrounds.  

Working at Crisis  

As a member of the team, you will have access to a wide range of employee benefits including:  

  • Interest free loans to purchase a train season ticket or a bike or for a deposit to secure a tenancy   

  • Mandatory pension scheme, with an employer contribution of 8.5%   

  • 25 days’ annual leave which increases with service to 28 days   

Alongside our excellent staff benefits, we will support your ongoing development to build your skills, experience and career.  

When you join us, you will have the opportunity to join our staff diversity networks, which aim to champion issues across the organisation, enable staff to be their authentic and best selves and contribute to making Crisis a truly diverse organisation.
