Creativity, passion and presence. LCC’s new Senior Campaigner will demonstrate all this and more. With razor sharp campaigning skills and boundless energy, they will help us win political action to make London’s streets safe enough for people of all ages and abilities to cycle. This a brilliant opportunity for an experienced and versatile campaigner motivated by LCC’s goal of a zero carbon, healthier, happier London, where cycling is the norm.

The London Cycling Campaign has been successful in winning high quality cycling infrastructure, low traffic neighbourhoods and making London’s roads safer for all. But there is still a long way to go. At the same time, the climate emergency and impact of Covid-19 mean it is even more urgent that transport in London becomes greener and healthier.

We need to go further, faster. That’s where our new Senior Campaigner comes in. As the lynchpin of our Campaigns Team you will play a central role in creating and delivering both centrally-led and localised, grassroots campaigning that will accelerate and deepen our impact. Because it’s the right thing to do, but also because it will help deliver our vision for London, you will also help our organisation become more representative of London’s diversity.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Co-ordinate the day-to-day work of LCC’s 8 person campaigns team
  • Keep a general overview of LCC’s campaigning (both centrally and by LCC’s local groups)
  • Respond to media and public speaking requests, fielding them directly or lining up other staff
  • Set proactive and reactive campaign tactics in collaboration with other staff
  • Maintain an open dialogue with LCC’s Marketing & Membership Team on campaigns-related communications

  • Write campaign reports and opinion pieces, and lead/contribute to the creation of campaigns collateral
