Director of Movement Building (sabbatical cover)

Location: Hybrid working. Our flexible working policy requires everyone to be in our east London office for 25% of the time as a minimum because building in-person relationships is important to us (that could be one week a month, or a day or two a week), but you’re welcome to be there more as many staff are.
Salary: Grade 2 £47,614pa
Contract type: 12 months fixed term (sabbatical cover)
Hours: Full-time, which for NEON is 28 hours a week – the equivalent of a 4 day standard work week. This can be done over 4 or 5 days, that’s totally up to you. Hours are generally flexible, with some core meetings everyone has to be at.
Benefits: 7.5% employer matched pension; flexible working across our office and remotely; a 28-hour week with no change to pay; 20 days holiday per year (plus bank holidays and Christmas break) and a generous staff development budget. A caring and learning culture that takes anti-oppression seriously and genuinely tries to  live values of solidarity, generosity and respect
Reporting to: Exec Director: Strategy and Fundraising 
Manages: Head of Coaching, Head of Organising 
Deadline: Sunday 9th January 2022, 23:59

About the role:  

The Director of Movement Building leads our Movement Building Hub, comprised of NEON’s training, coaching and organising programmes. This role is responsible for the overall strategy and direction of NEON’s Movement Building work; managing a small but busy team to deliver support, skills and analysis for social movements across the UK. 

From a programme perspective, the role is responsible for managing staff to deliver our Movement Builders training course; OrgBuilders, our year-long coaching programme for progressive organisations looking to level up; our Transformative Organising training and The Help Desk – quickfire support for movement leaders. In addition to this, the role will have shared strategic  oversight of NEON’s incubated organisations currently Nurses United, Just Treatment and Breathe, and lead on the emergent work we do to convene and coordinate movements to support collaborative strategic action. Other core elements of the role are fundraising and representing NEON and the hub externally, as well as some ad hoc coaching and training, and developing new pieces of core content for the Movement Building Hub and NEON more broadly. 

This is a senior leadership role and the successful candidate will be a key member of the leadership team alongside the Director of Communications and two Executive Directors.
