People in poverty pay more for essentials such as energy, insurance and credit. This is known as the poverty premium. Fair By Design (FBD) is dedicated to ending the extra costs of being poor. FBD is run by the Barrow Cadbury Trust. Please note FBD is an advocacy programme and not a grants programme. 

We are looking for a talented individual with an outstanding track record of successfully delivering impactful communications and public affairs strategies to join our team.  Using your skills and experience you will help us to achieve our mission of eliminating the poverty premium by ensuring our communications are persuasive and effective and that our messages are heard by policymakers and those in power. 

The Barrow Cadbury Trust is an independent charitable foundation seeking a just and peaceful society which recognizes the equal value of all people.  Largely working in partnerships with others, we use all our resources – our money, our people and our name – to bring about structural change to increase social justice and equality. 

We have a strong commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion and we encourage applications from people with personal experience of the social justice and human rights issues we seek to address.   

Any offer of employment will be made subject to references, confirmation of the right to work in the UK where we will need to see original documents. 

Before you apply have a look at the Fair By Design website as well as Barrow Cadbury Trust’s short animation about our values and the way we work.
