About the job: Living Rent is hiring a full-time community organiser to support members to organise in their neighbourhoods to challenge the issues they face and to fight for better housing and a system that works for the common good. The role entails outreach (stalls, door knocking, phones), recruiting members, and supporting members to organise meetings, take responsibilities locally, build democratic branches and take part in national structures.

Qualifications: We are looking for someone who is passionate about building real people power and excited about the chance to work for a young, diverse and member-run organisation. Experience in recruitment, training delivery, community education or campaigns is welcome; however enthusiasm, willingness to learn and commitment to social justice are more important than previous experience as training will be provided.

We are looking for someone with excellent communication and interpersonal skills, dedicated to building working class power in Scotland, win real changes on issues affecting our lives, and keen to build Living Rent’s potential.
