Job Alert: Membership & Recruitment Officer, NACO

Membership & Recruitment Officer

Salary: £25,000 to £30,000 (based on experience)

NACO – the co-operative trade union is a bespoke and independent TUC affiliate representing the interests of managers and professionals in the co-operative sector.

NACO is seeking to appoint a Membership & Recruitment Officer, to be based at the Head Office in Hyde, Cheshire, but will also feature field based activity. Initially this role will be for a fixed 18 month trial but if the role realises its potential this will be made a permanent position.

The jobholder will be responsible for identifying potential membership in the co-operative movement, develop local networks and increase activity in NACO through engaging and developing members and activists.

This is a challenging position demanding flexibility and commitment. As part of a small team, you will have to be a self-starter and have the energy to develop and drive recruitment campaigns. The duties will include face to face recruitment, on line engagement, development of literature to support membership recruitment and identify strategic resources to support this activity.   

The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate initiative and the ability to create innovative ways to make a strong case for union membership. You will need to have excellent communication skills and have a good track record of personal organisation and target achievement. There will be a requirement to travel and as such a full UK driving licence is desirable but not essential.
