The Fabian Society is seeking an enthusiastic and reliable events and digital assistant to help deliver our in-person, online and hybrid events, and our digital engagement and communications. The role will involve working on our busy events programme, producing content for our social media channels and coordinating email communications to our members and stakeholders.
Our 12-month assistant positions are designed for people with significant potential who do not have previous experience of working in politics. You will enter a year-long development programme during which you will be trained to perform all aspects of the job and undertake a wider induction into working in politics. We strongly encourage applications from people under-represented in politics and at the Fabian Society, including disabled people, people from racially diverse backgrounds and people from low-income backgrounds.
The Fabian Society is an independent left-wing think tank and democratic membership society with over 7,000 members. We publish articles and reports, conduct research and major inquiries, convene conferences and events and facilitate our members’ political debate and activism across the UK. The society is affiliated to the Labour party but editorially and organisationally independent. We have 12 employees, who are mainly based in our own central London office (close to St James Park tube station). Our employees share the aims and values of the society and automatically join as members upon appointment.
