More United’s model of driving change through focusing on shared values over party boundaries has captured a national mood frustrated by tribalism, worried about populism and which demands better politics. We’ve quickly established a strong base of 100,000 supporters and a group of 34 supported MPs in Parliament, and have built a strategy to transform politics.
We are now at a very exciting stage, where we want to deliver our first impact to supporters and MPs. You will be responsible for making the most of the support we’ve established, delivering a high profile public campaign victory that establishes the validity of our model. You will work closely with our CEO and Board and co-ordinate the team to deliver our strategy.
