About our work: We are a London-based charity working on a set of pressing issues under our strategic plan. Our public fundraising operations are at a nascent stage. With the Executive Director, the Resources Director, and the Public Action Team, you will explore new ways for PI to engage audiences for greater reach. We want people to be informed and want to take the journey with us to achieve concrete changes in the world.

We want to do all of this without exploiting our supporters’ data. Our approach and our tools place a priority on being privacy-protective and secure. Our digital tools, including website and public engagement platform, must maintain the trust of our supporters by limiting data collection and sharing, and by giving people control over their data.

You want to work across a variety of projects and utilise different skills-sets.

With us, you want to rewrite the textbook on how to do public engagement in global and changing communications environments, that doesn’t rely on the market-standard of profiling people and exploiting their data.

About PI: Everyone at PI works to build a good and resilient organisation, where we are always looking to learn and grow. We lead by example to make the most of our opportunities to shape the future. We work with others, including our network of partners across the world, to understand, engage and build a movement. We use creative approaches to deliver our work and share what we learn.
