4in10 is a London-wide campaigning network of organisations working to improve the lives of children living in poverty across the capital.

We believe child poverty can be tackled.

It doesn't have to exist. It doesn't have to be hurting the lives of hundreds of thousands of children.

So we connect people who care, we highlight best practice that works and keep the spotlight on the damage that poverty is doing to families in London.

If you are keen to highlight the views of children, young people, families and frontline workers, and engage community groups working with low income families across London uncovering and representing best of the VCS responses to child poverty, across the capital, then please get in touch.

We are seeking a proactive Community Engagement Officer to connect with small grassroots organisations across the capital and help in strengthening the voice of the sector on poverty.

The successful candidate will have exceptional people skills and the ability to work collaboratively within a small team. You will also have a clear understanding of the needs and challenges facing London’s voluntary sector, and the impacts of poverty on the capital’s families. You should have experience of collaborative working with service providers and / or infrastructure Voluntary and Community Sector organisations and of networking, advocacy and community capacity building work.

The post is designed to be fully flexible according to the needs of our member organisations, so we are expecting the 21hrs to be made up of a mixture of evening, weekend work and office hours each week.

This post is currently funded by City Bridge Trust to the end of March 2023.
