Are you the one we are looking for? 

We support people and organisations across the UK seeking to bring about positive social change. We are looking for someone with a passion for campaigning and the intellectual curiosity to help deepen our shared understanding.

You will get to be constantly curious about how social change is happening. You will undertake research and explore particular questions. You will spot new gaps, ideas and opportunities that SMK should step into.

You will support our public affairs work – help to build relationships with decision-makers, feed into our partnerships with other civil society groups, and present our material in an accessible and persuasive manner.

We are also committed to bringing change-makers together and sharing our learning as widely as possible. You will contribute to our events programme by identifying speakers, designing agendas, and organising discussions that help SMK to do just that.
