Tripod's vision is of a world where communities organise for collective liberation by confronting the root causes of injustice, fighting to shift oppressive power relations and collaborating to build alternatives.
We want to see social movements which are strategic and focused, led by marginalised and directly affected communities, and capable of enacting lasting change. We believe strong and healthy social movements prioritise personal and collective care, build relationships of intersectional solidarity and respect, and create sustainable group cultures.
About the role
While you will have a particular focus on coordinating the Organising for Power programme, you will support all of Tripod’s activities and take a fair share of the operational responsibilities. We practice skill-sharing and peer coaching within the staff team and will support you to feel confident in your work.
