Current opportunities

Application process

At Citizens UK, we use Applied, an applicant-tracking recruitment system. Applied aims to overcome unconscious bias in recruiting. Often the Hiring Team will not see your CV as part of the shortlisting process and instead ask questions to test skills needed for the role. The responses are anonymised and reviewed by the panel. The Applied platform also asks some demographic questions before you start your application. Citizens UK cannot see individual demographic responses, only summary statistics to monitor our candidate pool for balance. Applied aims to give an equal chance to be hired irrespective of background. Candidates can opt out of answering the demographic questions.

We welcome applicants from different backgrounds and will do our best to meet reasonable adjustments and access needs for disabilities during and after the recruitment process.

Applicants must have the right to work in the UK as Citizens UK is unable to sponsor visa applications. Our community organisers work in the community and their employment is subject to satisfactory standard/enhanced DBS checks.

For questions and reasonable adjustments regarding your application, or our recruitment process, please email

I've been working at Citizens for over 10 years. It is incredible to wake up every day and get paid (!) to be a professional mischief maker. My colleagues are kind and challenging, and the environment constantly means I am pushed to think and adapt, so no two days are the same. Sometimes, I am working with 8 year olds to win a campaign or building a 3 year strategy with a charity exec team, having 1on1s with people seeking immigration status or running training on how faith fits with our tradition. One downside- I need to regularly replace my shoes as I do 12,000 - 15,000 steps a day without trying - good for me as I am not very good at sitting still. Daniel Mackintosh, Lead Community Organiser
