The role

Narrative Fundraising Lead—helping us fundraise for our new strategy, Future Stories, so that we can build a new community of well-resourced narrative change leaders. Read more about this role in our Narrative Fundraising Lead job pack.

We have a flat management structure, which means we all also play an active role in the running of the organisation.

Trustee position

We’re also looking for a new Trustee to join the team.


We’re particularly keen to have someone with fundraising experience, as we continue to fundraise for our new strategy. Read more about this role in our Fundraising Trustee job pack.

About PIRC

PIRC works to support our movements—for equality, anti-oppression, and climate justice—to tell better stories for a more just world. We connect diverse groups, in participatory spaces, to share knowledge, develop strategies and strengthen movements. We carry out strategic research to support this work. And we create and openly share resources and tools for developing better strategy and communications. Our strategy for the coming years is Future Stories–helping to Democratise, Diversify and Deepen narrative change work in the UK.

We are a small charity with a flat management structure and a flat pay scale. Every team member has equal input and decision-making power in directing the organisation, and we share many of the organisational management tasks.

We are based in beautiful Machynlleth, on the edge of the Snowdonia national park. There are currently four of us (plus Poppy, the dog) and we generally work a three- or four-day week because we think it’s good for us, and because we are privileged enough to live in a beautiful part of the world in which living costs are low enough for us to do so.

We are particularly keen to receive applications from Black people, Brown people and People of Colour; people with experience of migration or seeking asylum; Disabled People; people who identify as LGTBQIA+; people with mental health conditions; people who are part of a faith group; and people who identify as working class (or have done so in the past).
