An exciting opportunity has arisen to join the Policy and Campaigns team at Action on Hearing Loss.

The Campaigns Officer will sit within our Policy & Campaigns directorate, which is responsible for influencing the government, parliamentarians, policy makers, service providers, individuals and a wide range of other stakeholders. We work to ensure that people with hearing loss do not face barriers in society and that the best possible support is available for them to help manage their condition.

You will support the delivery of campaign activities and liaise with a range of internal stakeholders, delivering outputs ranging from public-facing emails, email to target campaign actions, blogs and campaign videos to campaign events.

Communication is a basic human need. Yet most of us know someone who struggles to communicate through hearing loss. It can cause substantial harm to friendships, family relationships, confidence, employability, mental health and life chances.

Action on Hearing Loss (formerly the RNID) is the UK's largest charity for the 11 million people in the UK who confront deafness, tinnitus and hearing loss every day. Established in 1911, we help people to take control of their lives and live the life they choose, removing the barriers standing in their way. We give people support and care, develop technology and treatments, and campaign for equality.

We champion the value of difference and equality and celebrate our diverse and inclusive workforce. We actively encourage applications from eligible candidates from BAME backgrounds or who are deaf or hard of hearing. With almost 20% of our employees having a disability we proudly hold Disability Confident Leader status and guarantee an interview for disabled applicants meeting the minimum essential criteria.
