We're looking for an experienced digital and social media campaigner to work at the heart of our Space for Cycling campaign, engaging with our 20,000 Twitter, 10,000 Facebook supporters and the public at large, encouraging them to take actions and share information about our campaign.

The role is available between Monday 31 March until Friday 23 May, joining our campaigns team in our office in SE1, with some remote weekend work likely.

Our Space for Cycling campaign aims to persuade every candidate in this May's local elections in Greater London to support measures to make our streets more cycle-friendly. We'll be asking members of the public to take online action to persuade the candidates in their area to support specific local measures to make cycling safer and more inviting. We'll also use social media to promote events run by ourselves and local campaigners.

You'll have experience working on similar campaigns, devising and implementing a social media strategy to engage successfully with the public. You'll have a good understanding of digital campaigning tools to work efficiently, including monitoring results.

You'll need to be sympathetic to the aims of the London Cycling Campaign, capable of working with our tone of voice, aware of the limits within which charities must operate, and be adept in managing social media in a way that avoids reputational risk, at the same time as maximising outcomes.
