Changing Markets is looking for an experienced Campaign Manager to join our dynamic team in running and winning market transformation campaigns. The position is full-time and the successful candidate should be based in our London office at 1 Mark Square. She or he will work on a range of different international campaigns and should be willing to travel. 

Changing Market Foundation was formed to accelerate and scale-up solutions to sustainability challenges by leveraging the power of markets. We create and support campaigns that expose irresponsible corporate practices and shift market share from unsustainable products and companies towards environmentally and socially beneficial solutions. We work on a range of different topics at the intersection of environmental and social issues and have a strong track record of winning campaigns. Our past campaigns have focused on the major players in food, fashion, plastic and aquafeed sectors – to name just a few. 

We are looking for a senior campaigner with at least 5 years’ experience in running campaigns, a strong track record of success and proven strategic thinking skills. This role has a strong focus on research and a successful candidate should be excellent at conducting investigation, managing external researchers and writing campaign reports. The person should have strong inter-personal skills and be a team player – with a good network of NGO contacts and an ability to form strong working relationships with a variety of different stakeholders. We are also looking for a creative thinker, who has the ability to deliver to tight deadlines and occasionally manage heavy workloads.  

A successful candidate must have:

  • demonstrable experience in running and winning international campaigns;
  • demonstrated analytical and strategic thinking skills and the ability to develop campaigns from scratch;
  • the ability to lead, implement and coordinate research (either in-house or by external consultants) to create the base of knowledge needed to win campaigns; 
  • a good eye for detail, but also strong ability to extrapolate and critically evaluate key information and translate them into simple campaign materials;
  • excellent writing skills in English, which will be needed to write reports and investigations;
  • excellent communication and presentation skills;
  • fluency in another European language (German or French is a plus);
  • networking skills and a proven ability to create and run diverse coalitions;
  • good organizational skills with the ability to multi-task and operate in a fast-paced environment with occasional heavy workloads; 
  • the ability to think out-of-the-box and to adapt campaign plans to changing circumstances;
  • a passionate interest in environment and international development issues with a view to creating lasting social change.

It’s a plus if the candidate:

  • has good knowledge of debates surrounding environmental and social issues;
  • has experience in handling media relations; 
  • has a good knowledge of how to use social media to win campaigns.
