Opportunities to work with SMK

Job opportunities at SMK 


SMK is in an exciting place. A few years ago, we agreed an ambition to become known as experts in social change. Our Social Power report describes how social change is happening today, while It’s All About Power sets out why we need a new way of thinking about power to achieve deeper solidarity in driving that change. The tools in these reports are being used widely – by change-makers, funders and policy-makers – to challenge their thinking and develop new approaches. We want to help them go further.

We are excited to announce three new roles at SMK, that will each play a pivotal role in helping SMK unleash the power of civil society.

SMK is committed to being an equal opportunities employer and actively encourages those under-represented in the sector to apply. We will also consider flexible approaches to working hours and welcome applications outside of London, despite our offices being located there.
