Paid training scheme for those passionate about racial justice

A new, remote, 11-month paid training programme at the UK’s leading race equality think tank.

Runnymede Trust is recruiting for Runnymede Unbound, a paid training and development scheme that is open to adults of all ages and backgrounds passionate about racial justice in the UK.

The Runnymede Trust is the UK’s leading race equality think tank. It was founded in 1968 to ‘nail the lie’ on racism, providing evidence for policymakers and the wider public, so that racial inequalities are better tackled in Britain. Over the years Runnymede has had many achievements and successes. Runnymede Unbound is your opportunity to join the organisation in its mission and to develop your skills, knowledge and experience in policy, communications, operations, partnerships and research.

You are not required to have a degree, nor to come from any particular class or ethnic background. You may be thinking of a career change, you may be returning to the labour market after a long absence, or, you may indeed be a graduate. You will need to be passionate about Runnymede’s work and be able to work with a high degree of flexibility, responsibility and autonomy. You will also need excellent written and verbal communication skills, with the capacity to work remotely.

Applications are accepted from anywhere in the UK.

The programme will pay you the London Living Wage or National Living Wage, whichever applies, and you need to be free to start as soon as possible from beginning February 2021.

This is a full time position, meaning 35 hours per week, but Runnymede is open to those who want to job share, on a pro rata basis.

To express interest and find out more:

lease call and speak with Carol at the Runnymede office on 0207 377 9222 for an informal chat about the scheme.

To apply:

Send in a 1-page CV, plus a 1-page cover letter, of no more than 400 words, stating how you see joining this training scheme will develop you, and listing 3 of your key training and development objectives.

Send this to carol@runnymedetrust.org.

CVs without a cover letter and completed monitoring form will not be accepted.

Deadline for applications: 31 January 2021
