Move Your Money are hiring!
Admin | 22.08.12
The incredible Move Your Money UK campaign is reaching more and more people, and they've now hit the half a million mark, with over 500,000 pledges from consumers to move their money.
We featured them in a post a few weeks ago, but now they are looking to hire a Campaign Manager (details below), so we thought now was a good time to take a look at them in a little more detail.
For those of you not already familiar with the fantastic work Move Your Money are doing, watch the video - and make your pledge today!
Move Your Money is a brilliant example of people-powered, democratically-driven campaigns for social justice.
The US division has inspired over 10 million Americans to move their money to local financial institutions.
Launched in the UK in February this year, as a response to endless scandals and news of irresponsible banking practises hitting the headlines, Move Your Money have been gaining traction in the media. The unfair division of profits and unethical investment of the Big Banks have led many consumers to question how they invest their hard-earned cash.
Move Your Money offers guidance and resources - answering questions like, 'okay, what are the alternatives to the Big Banks?'
They've been working tirelessly to promote the better alternative to banking, and we love their video that they released in advance of Barclays' AGM: "Dear Bob, the thing I hate most about your bank is..."
And this was before the Libor scandal...!
We're making noise about them today because they're hiring!
The UK arm is seeking a Campaign Manager to take the movement up to the next level. They've already secured national and international coverage and building a strong public profile in the public eye.
"We need a sharp organiser, a passionate campaigner and a confident communicator to make the most of Move Your Money's enormous potential. This is a great opportunity for someone with initiative to grow a campaign that will have a direct and significant impact on social justice in the UK.
This role requires strong project management skills, and experience managing a team and a tight budget. Fundraising experience is hugely helpful. But most important is your ability to take the initiative, work independently and cooperate well in a dedicated, passionate and diverse team running a fast paced, news-driven campaign." - Move Your Money
