WEN Wales is recruiting a part-time Diverse 5050 Campaign Manager to join our team of supportive and hardworking feminists!

One of our key strategic priorities is to secure diverse and equal leadership at the Senedd and in Local Government. We aim to do this via our Diverse 5050 campaign, run in partnership with our steering group ERS Cymru, Race Council Cymru, and EYST Wales. The campaign already has the support of 21 organisations, representing around 17k people in total. We have now secured funding for a 1-year post from the Joseph Rowntree Reform Trust to take the work forward.

The Diverse5050 Campaign Manager will build on the initial work which has taken place in 2021 and will ramp up momentum as we move to a critical time in electoral reform in Wales. This would include influencing the Programme for Government following the Welsh Senedd elections in May 2021, engaging with candidates for the local government elections in 2022 and influencing political parties so that they take action to select more diverse candidates.

With a proven track record of running successful campaigns which have made change and influencing politicians and decision makers you will need good political awareness, strong interpersonal skills and the ability to think strategically.

You will be extremely motivated, able to work on your own initiative and be ready to join a high-performing yet fun and supportive team of feminists.

We particularly welcome Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) and disabled candidates as BAME people and disabled people are currently underrepresented in our staff.

This post is funded by the Joseph Rowntree Reform Trust.
