Harris Hill is proud to be partnering with the Anti-Bullying Alliance (ABA) in their search for a National Campaigns Manager.

Established in 2002 by the NSPCC and the National Children's Bureau (NCB) and currently hosted by the NCB, the ABA works to raise the profile of bullying and the effect it has on the lives of children and young people. Working in coalition with its extensive membership and advisory group, the latter of which comprises the likes of Stonewall and the NSPCC, the ABA has three primary ways of working: policy and advocacy (media, partnership building and policy development); building an evidence base for effective practice (research and evaluation); and information sharing (membership and developing resources for schools and other organisations that work with children and young people).

By nature of the post and the ABA, this is an incredibly varied and hands-on campaigning post, covering elements of policy, advocacy, programme management, account management (of the ABA's major funder) and partnership building and management, with additional exposure to fundraising. A particular focus of this position is to coordinate the ABA's flagship 'Anti-Bullying Week', a nation-wide engagement and awareness campaign, which will this year inform schools and settings, children and young people, parents and carers to know that it takes a collective responsibility to stop bullying.

As you may expect, experience of both campaign strategy and delivery is essential for this post. Policy and fundraising experience are not essential; however, you must be able to demonstrate experience of campaign planning and delivery, knowledge of how storytelling feeds into effective public campaigning, and experience of stakeholder management, particularly at a senior level.

This is a brilliant opportunity for an experienced campaigner to tackle the root causes of bullying and empower young people all across the country, as well as gain excellent exposure to the full machinery of what makes campaigns tick.

This is a full-time, permanent position paying 35,035 p.a. Application process is a CV and covering letter to harry.marven@harrishill.co.uk. The ABA is looking to appoint as soon as possible, therefore, applications will be judged on a rolling basis, with interviews also scheduled on a rolling basis.

Please note that only suitable applicants will be contacted.
