The post-holder is responsible for piloting a new ‘Speaking Truth to Power’ programme to develop a network of leaders with lived experience across the UK.

They will work with local grassroots organisations to co-deliver a new capacity building programme that will bring together lived experience leaders ensuring the anti-poverty movement and strategy is led by people who experience poverty.

This is a 35-hour-a-week role for working from home or our offices in Salford Quays. The salary is £31,346–£35,745 dependent on experience, plus a 10% employer’s pension contribution and generous holiday entitlements.
