War on Want is a dynamic organisation working in the UK and with partners around the world to fight poverty and defend human rights, as part of the movement for global justice. We believe a better world is possible. A world in which everyone lives a dignified life free from repression, injustice and climate disaster. We believe that poverty is political: the most effective way to end it is by taking collective action to challenge the structures of inequality and injustice.

War on Want campaigns in the UK to challenge human rights abusing corporations and governments; to hold those responsible for inequality and poverty to account. We publish in-depth research exposing injustice and human rights abuse globally. We work in partnership with grassroots groups, trade unions and workers’ organisations in the Global South. We stand in solidarity with movements fighting for their rights around the world.

You would be joining a small, engaged, and committed Senior Management Team, which meets regularly and takes an integrated, collaborative approach to fundraising, communications and broader organisational strategy.

You would work closely with our Executive Director, Asad Rehman, who is a recognised thought leader in progressive climate justice and human rights philanthropy spaces with wide-ranging experience of building key donor relationships.

You would be managing a talented team of 7 people spanning the full range of income generation, communications and engagement functions

A key organisational priority is building our integrated supporter engagement programme, which utilises a digital mobilisation approach to drive brand reach, increase our movement of members via regular giving, and maximise our campaign impact by creating wide-ranging opportunities for action.

You would be joining the organisation at a critical phase of growth and investment in key areas as we begin to set out our strategy for the five years ahead.
