Challenging Job Prospect with our allies at the NCIA

National Coalition for Independent Action

National Co-ordinator (up to 4 days a week) – £30k pro rata

We’re footloose, outspoken and spirited. We don’t do targets and we reject ‘command-and-control’ working. We’re often angry and we’re dogged in our determination to change the status quo. And we have fun. Want to join us?

The National Coalition for Independent Action (NCIA) is an alliance built around the belief that a defining feature of our democratic society is in danger – our unfettered freedom to join with others in independent voluntary and community activities. Our primary purpose is to expose these dangers and to encourage those involved in voluntary action to create and pursue their own agendas for social justice and a healthy society. You can see who we are and what we stand for by checking our website

More and more people agree with us. We’re growing and have decided to create our first staff post of National Co-ordinator. This is offered as a one-year fixed term contract, with the option of renewal for a further year. The post available is for 4 days a week but we will consider applications for less than 4 days a week. The postholder may either work from home/their own office, or be based with a supporter organisation.

You’ll work in an equal relationship with a growing network of individuals and groups that cover ever bit of voluntary endeavour across the UK. You’ll need to have clear views of what is needed and to be influenced by others with equally strong views. Most important – you need to believe in what we are trying to do. If you can’t do hectic, or cope with difference and dissent, then don’t apply. But if you thrive on too many balls in the air, the widest landscape and horizons imaginable and seek solidarity and co-working with kindred souls – then find out more.
