Debt Justice is recruiting a temporary Senior Campaigner to support our global South debt and climate change campaign over a very busy period. Working closely with internal colleagues and external allies based both in the UK and internationally, you will ensure we can make the most of our campaigns to bring about debt cancellation in the face of the climate crisis.

There are currently 54 lower income countries in debt crisis. Despite some international commitments following the pandemic there has been little concerted action to respond to this systemic economic injustice. The build-up of unpayable debt is a major barrier for many countries facing the climate crisis. Countries are forced into more debt through climate disasters, some are forced into fossil fuel extraction to pay for the debt and the huge debt burden diverts essential resources away from adaption and mitigation. The second half of 2023 presents key opportunities to make progress on our debt campaign, including the IMF and World Bank Annual Meetings, which this year will be in Marrakech, and the COP28 climate summit in December.

This role will bring much needed capacity to a busy team, to help co-ordinate our campaign, both internally and with international and national allies to ensure that our campaign has a wide reach and impact.

You will:

  • Lead our climate and debt public campaign  
  • Coordinate planning and delivery of the campaign
  • Engage with a wider international and national coalition, supporting key international campaigning moments and activities
  • Develop campaign messaging and produce campaign materials and content

We strongly value diversity and welcome applications from people from all backgrounds. We would particularly like to encourage applications from women and non-binary people, people of colour, people who identify as LGTBQIA+ and people who identify as working class or have done in the past.

If you have any questions or want to know more, please get in touch at application@debtjustice.org.uk.

For full details of the role and how to apply, please read the recruitment pack (.pdf), complete the application form (.docx) and equal opportunities monitoring form (.docx) and send them by email to application@debtjustice.org.uk

The deadline for applications is 9am on Monday 17 July. Interviews will be held on Monday 24 July.
