Every year, we reach thousands of people through our work in education and outreach. We have become a go-to educator in the field of antisemitism, providing teaching and training at schools, universities and professional, law enforcement and governmental institutions across the UK. We have also become a trusted provider of teaching resources, as well support and advocacy services for students of all ages.
The Education and Outreach Manager has four principal roles:
- Running, developing and expanding our education programmes, including to Jewish and non-Jewish schools, universities, and a variety of professional, law enforcement and governmental institutions;
- Running, developing and expanding our outreach work within the Jewish community, with other faith communities, and with high-risk groups;
- Working with our specialist team to manage casework within the education sector; and
- Managing our relationships with schools, universities, students’ unions and Jewish student groups.
You do not need to have direct experience in these areas, but you do need to be able to demonstrate a knowledge of the field, as well as confidence in delivering education sessions, workshops and creating and driving forward programmes.
You will receive extensive training, guidance and mentorship in each of these areas from your predecessor in the role, who is transferring to another role within the charity.
Education programmes: We currently work with schools and universities across the country with programmes ranging from intensive preparation for Jewish students leaving school for university, through to teaching materials on antisemitism for teachers at non-Jewish schools. Additionally, we educate beyond the education sector, providing training to companies, institutions, law enforcement, regulators and the Government. You will work with volunteers to develop and expand these programmes, including by providing educational sessions yourself, building relationships with external organisations, and training new volunteers to educate about antisemitism. You will work closely with other staff to organise events throughout the year and to synchronise your work with the efforts of our communications team.
Outreach work: Our outreach programme seeks to forge strong alliances in the fight against antisemitism both within the Jewish community and outside it. We also seek to target members of groups at high risk of exposure to antisemitism with persuasive messaging. You will be responsible for developing and executing our outreach strategy, building relationships with key stakeholders and making tangible inroads into a variety of communities both within and outside the Jewish community.
Managing our education sector casework: A crucial part of our support to people in the education sector is assisting the victims of antisemitic incidents. Working closely with our investigatory, enforcement and legal teams, you will ensure those who perpetrate antisemitism against teachers, students and academics face the consequences of their actions.
Managing our campus relationships: Campaign Against Antisemitism has a reputation for its work on university campuses. To maintain this and provide further support to Jewish and non-Jewish students combating antisemitism on their campuses you will develop relationships with relevant stakeholders, student groups and organisations. You will also develop personal relationships with groups on campuses across the UK, assisting them when antisemitic incidents occur, gathering evidence at problematic demonstrations and lectures, and organising educative events, to ensure that we continue to provide full on-campus support for the range of issues students may face.
The successful candidate will be creative, meticulously organised and precise, even under pressure. You will be adept at managing external relationships, with excellent interpersonal skills. Your work will require you to prioritise effectively, think analytically and communicate persuasively and eloquently. You will be a fast learner who can develop practical solutions and operate with total discretion. You will be comfortable working as part of a large and growing team. You will be able to work outside of normal office hours when required, and travel extensively within the UK.
