DEBUG: basic
Vacancy : Communications Manager


The European Movement UK is looking for an experienced and passionate Communications Manager to join our team and to build the profile of the organisation.

About the European Movement UK

The European Movement UK is the UK's largest, and oldest, pro-European network with over 100 local groups and thousands of individual activists in all corners of the UK.

It was founded over 70 years ago, with Winston Churchill as its first Honorary President, to advocate close relationships between the UK and Europe. It is politically independent, working with people from all parties and none. It is part of European Movement International and was a founding member of the People's Vote Campaign.

Since the 2019 election, our organisation has reached an exciting turning point. Our role is now more important than ever as we hold the government to account during the Brexit process. We will be campaigning to maintain European rights, standards, and values post-Brexit and campaign against a No Deal at the end of the transition period.

About the role

Reporting to the Head of Digital, the incoming Communications Manager will lead the European Movement’s communications and media operation, contributing to the organisation’s strategic objectives that include:

  • Position the European Movement as the authoritative, cross-party, pro-European voice in British politics;
  • Shape the public narrative about the social and economic impact of leaving the EU on families and communities across the UK, and effectively counter attempts to obscure the impact of leaving the EU behind Covid;
  • Give a voice to people and communities negatively affected by our departure from the EU, making their experience urgent and important in public debate.

Contract type:
22.5 hours a week (0.6 FTE), permanent



The European Movement UK is committed to improving the diversity of our team. We welcome applications from all candidates, but would welcome applications in particular from women, working parents, and from BAME and disabled candidates, to improve representation in these areas.

We are taking steps to help us attract a wider range of candidates, including adopting a more inclusive recruitment process, offering the role on a flexible, part time basis, and being flexible on the location of the role. Please let us know if you require any other adjustments in order to apply for this role.

How to apply

We will be running a "blind" recruitment process for this role to make our processes more inclusive.

To apply for this role you will need to submit the answers to three situational and experience related questions, and upload a copy of your CV.

The three questions aim to provide the recruitment panel with a good overview of your experience and skills and how they relate to the key requirements for the role. The panel will score the answers to these questions "blind" (without knowing other information about the candidates).

We will only review CVs once we have scored candidates on the questions, and personal information such as name, gender, date of birth (if provided) will only be known by the recruitment panel should you be chosen for interview.
