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 a track record of successfully managing projects and providing administrative support to ensure our operations are efficient and our programme of work runs on time and to budget.

You will help us to achieve our mission of eliminating the poverty premium by ensuring our research, policy and advocacy projects are supported and managed in a way that maximises impact. You will be adept at working in partnership, building trusted relationships with our partners. In addition, you will play a key role in fulfilling our governance commitments by producing papers for our Board and serving as the secretariat for our advisory group. You will also oversee collection of data to ensure that our evaluation work is fit for purpose, robust and allows us to learn from our activities. You will be part of a small team, where you’ll be responsible for our internal communications, including diary and event management.

The Barrow Cadbury Trust is an independent charitable foundation seeking a just and peaceful society which recognises 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, thus increasing 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.
