This is a senior leadership role and the successful candidate will be a key member of the leadership team alongside their co-Director, the Directors of the Communications and Operations Hubs, and two co-Executive Directors. You will help shape the new strategy for NEON and the Movement Building Hub, and help develop and lead new projects to enable social movements in the UK to win.
