Working in close partnership with the country’s leading Human Rights Lawyers, Leigh Day, we have a mission to reduce the gender pay gap by encouraging workers to make equal pay claims.

You will work within a small marketing team and be able to contribute to team output from day one, as well as being able to learn different skills. One of the biggest perks of this role in a very small flexible SME is you’ll be able to shape your own role in terms of content and in the direction, that interests you. You’ll get to participate in a wide range of opportunities to help with new tasks and projects, coming from various people in the organisation.

Your marketing activity will revolve mainly around social media and digital activities but there may also be opportunities to get involved in more traditional business development activities.
