Hiring: Campaigns Officer job vacancy

We're hiring: Campaigns Officer for Keep Our NHS Public

This is a new role to strengthen the national campaigning of Keep Our NHS Public, joining a small, but very successful and committed team.

Keep Our NHS Public (KONP) campaigns for an NHS which is publicly funded, publicly provided and publicly accountable, available to all on the basis of clinical need, regardless of ability to pay. We campaign for an increase in funding, an end to privatisation, safe staffing levels and against racist scapegoating in the NHS and against migrant charges.
