This is a very satisfying role for anyone who likes to see new joiners flourish and find their potential within the movement, as well as giving new lifeblood to existing groups. You will help recruit for new roles within the Media & Messaging team and its sub-teams, and support new volunteers in becoming productive and happy members.

WHAT THE TEAM DOES The UK Media & Messaging team are responsible for all the communications, branding, statements, audiovisual content, and relationships with the media for XRUK. It has subteams for Press, Messaging & Editorial, Broadcast, Email and Social Media.

  • Post role adverts (like this one!) for skills and roles that the teams need
  • Welcome and induce new team members and help them get involved
  • Check in on the new team members to ensure they have everything they need to succeed.
  • Do related administration, with the help of the team admin person.

  • You like finding out more about what people are good at and matching that with what the movement needs
  • You are open, warm, welcoming and communicative
  • You are interested in helping XRUK to present a coherent narrative and to communicate effectively both externally and internally.


  • Experience with XR or with another organisation with similar objectives

You'll be supported by another Integrator who will train you up, and be part of a wider team of integrators/recruiters from across XR to share ideas, advice and challenges.


  • Be at the forefront of implementing our strategy to be in solidarity with allied groups to meet the multiple crises we are experiencing
  • Improve your communication skills
  • Self-satisfaction in knowing you are supporting us to get the UK government to meet our three demands and live on a habitable planet.
