Who is the Fight Inequality Alliance?

The Fight Inequality Alliance is comprised of leading national and international social movements, NGOs, women’s rights groups, artists, activists and trade unions across the world. We are deeply concerned about the impact of current shocking levels of inequality and inspired by people’s collective struggles to build a just, equal, and sustainable world. Rising inequality is hurting us all - holding up poverty reduction, harming the environment, hurting communities, destabilising society, and undermining democracy.

Experts and international institutions now recognise that inequality must be tackled. And every government has pledged to reduce inequality within and between countries. But in practice not much progress is happening and in many countries we are going backwards. When it comes to action they are still reaching for the same old failed solutions.

Only when people join together from the grassroots up, mobilising and organising to build power and demand accountability and greater equality, will things change. Together we are helping to build up people’s power and connect across organisations and borders to enable a more equal world. 

How to Apply:

Applications should be submitted via email to info@fightinequality.org with ‘Application for Creative Writing Consultancy’  in the subject line.

Applications must include only:

  • A motivation letter of no more than 2 sides that indicates: a) why you are interested in this position and how you would undertake the assignment; and b) aspects of your background that demonstrate the required competence for this role;
  • A detailed CV with two references; and
  • A portfolio of your recent past work that best shows your suitability for the role 
  • A rate card including your daily charges

Please ensure that your application, as a whole, speaks to the required experience, person specification and key roles and responsibilities. Please do not apply if you do not meet the required experience.

Closing Date: 29 October

Only shortlisted candidates will be contacted.

Consultancy Overview:

We are seeking to recruit a Creative Writer to conceptualise and then write the copy for two series of communications that Fight Inequality Alliance wants to produce. The first is a set of ‘Core Concepts’ that underpin why and how we fight inequality (including solidarity, feminism, intersectionality, etc). The second is a set of ‘Explainers’, that go deeper into the demands that form FIA’s ‘People’s Recovery Plan’ globally. These will be mainly designed for digital platforms, but may also be adapted for print depending on the final formats used.

Key tasks/deliverables:

  • Conceive (with Digital Engagement Lead and Global Convenor) the best format or formats required for both series
  • Undertake the copywriting (with feedback/edits before sign off) for both the ‘Core Concepts’ and ‘Explainer’ series, making adjustments with the creatives working on the visuals as needed

Person specification:

  • A proven track record of developing popular written communications products that are accessible to a wide range of audiences and for a wide range of formats
  • Ability to work closely with Graphic Designers/ Cartoonists/ Videographers etc as required to co-create the content that works best for each format 
  • Experience of working with diverse groups of people, and ability to craft a collective story and message that can unite and amplify pressure for large scale changes
  • Self-motivated and results oriented.
  • Proven ability to deliver under tight deadlines.
  • Possesses strong organisational and detail-oriented skills.
  • Experience in communications work for social justice causes and organisations, movements
  • Audience driven, with knowledge and insight into how to craft global narratives that also speak to national realities 
  • Ability to translate complex ideas and demands into accessible language and ideas that connect to people’s realities and demands for change
  • Strong knowledge of the root causes of inequality, the policy changes needed to fight inequality, as well as the pedagogy/s behind how activists and movements create their collective people power

SAFER RECRUITMENT: FIA is committed to preventing any type of unwanted behaviour in the movement including sexual harassment, exploitation and abuse, lack of integrity and financial misconduct; and promoting the welfare of children, young people and adults. FIA expects all staff to share this commitment through our code of conduct. We place a high priority on ensuring that only those who share and demonstrate our values are recruited to work for us. Offers of employment will be subject to satisfactory references and appropriate screening checks, which can include criminal records checks.
