Corporate Watch is a small independent research group run as a workers cooperative and based in Oxford, England. We conduct research and analysis to expose the mechanisms by which corporations operate and the negative effects they have on society and the environment.
Corporate Watch is looking for 2 new people from May/June 2003:
1) News Editor:
Co-ordinate, edit, develop and market our bi-monthly newsletter, and research and edit the fortnightly news updates for our website.
This person’s time would be split 50/50 between:
Administration: Taking responsibility for day-to-day financial administration at Corporate Watch (maintaining our accounts and payroll, paying bills etc). This work would be shared with one other person.

We are ideally looking for people who:
Have research and writing skills.
Have initiative and ideas for research projects.
Have experience of grassroots campaigning and taking direct action.
Are connected to activist networks in the UK and/or abroad.
