Based in the NEU North West region (Bolton, BL6 4SD)
Commencing salary £49,552 plus £1,308 lunch allowance per annum
The National Education Union is a force for change in the world of education, bringing together 450,000 teachers, lecturers, support staff and leaders working in maintained and independent schools and colleges across the UK.
Prospective applicants will be experienced, innovative organisers who have organised in a voluntary or paid capacity in a trade union and/or social justice environment: supporting and developing members and activists, increasing membership density, building participation, unity and power to win.
You will need experience of managing multiple organising projects, and work well in a team, delivering key strategic industrial campaigns and projects in your region. You will work directly with members and activists, developing confident workplace representatives and strong workplace groups. You will lead and champion good organising practice across the union, regionally and nationally.
We are looking for applicants who can work flexibly as part of a team with good organisational skills, who are able to prioritise, work under pressure and use their own initiative.
NEU employees have access to TOIL and a blended working policy that allows for some home working to balance the flexibility required in the role.
In addition to salary, NEU offer good conditions including a non-superannuable luncheon allowance currently set at £1308, 35 days’ annual leave plus Christmas closure days and a defined benefit pension scheme. Salary and benefits will be calculated pro-rata for part-time applicants.
Prospective applicants should be aware that having a full and valid UK driving licence at the point of application is an essential requirement for this role and that the NEU will provide the successful applicant with a company car.
Further details can be downloaded from our website via the button below where applicants will be able to complete an online application on our recruitment portal. Closing date is mid-day Monday, 2 October 2023.
We encourage applications from underrepresented groups, individuals seeking part-time, job-share or other flexible working arrangements, in line with the NEU Values.
THE UNION IS FUNDAMENTALLY COMMITTED TO EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES IN ITS POLICIES AND PRACTICE.
