About this Role

The South East region is currently recruiting 3 Area Organisers. 

There has never been a more important time to protect our members in the public services and encourage those that are not members to join a powerful voice. Are you a people person with good listening and problem solving skills? Do you possess the determination to make a difference to people’s lives?

UNISON is looking for an enthusiastic, flexible and resourceful individual to support our growing organisation.

The successful candidate will bring their experience and skills to the role and be able to develop and deliver recruitment and organising initiatives and campaigns in our branches, train and develop stewards, undertake case work, advise, support and mentor branch officers and stewards in representation and negotiation.

You will have excellent presentation skills and communication skills, both face-to-face and on paper.

A sound understanding of trade unions and their objectives is essential along with a good understanding of UNISON’s policies and objectives.

There are three posts that are being advertised that each cover either the Brighton & West Sussex or Thames Valley areas. You will be required to live within reasonable travelling distance of the area you are asked to cover. Additionally, you will need to be able to travel within the region and to the Guildford Office for meetings/training as required.
