Your Pride In London 

Pride in London means many things to many people, it belongs to our community and it belongs to you; come and join the conversation!

Pride in London has a renewed sense of purpose to highlight the challenges still facing the LGBT+ community today despite progress. We are run by a group of volunteers who are passionate about equality and diversity and are drawn from all walks of life. Pride aims to raise awareness of LGBT+ issues and campaign for the freedoms that will allow all of our community to live their lives on a genuinely equal footing. 

Around 250 people volunteer year-round to help us deliver what has become a world-class Pride. It is our intention for Pride in London to best represent all parts of our community and we continue to actively encourage applications from diverse backgrounds, particularly women, People of Colour and those from the trans and non-binary communities. All applications are important to us so if you’d like to be part of the future of Pride in London please register your interest or share this opportunity with your network.

If you're the sort of person who loves checking off a to do list or unblocking a dependency, then we could really use your help!

The Digital team look after the Pride website, app and most other online channels. We work like a consultancy, resourcing team members from different disciplines to support other Pride teams with their goals and objectives. We've grown rapidly in the last few years as we've earned the trust of other Pride teams to deliver more complex projects for them. We restructured the team to add Project Management as a discipline as we recognised that we really needed that skillset to keep on top of tracking our decisions and deadlines.

We're looking someone who is used to working in a digital environment that can help define how we plan and run projects, as well as experiment with how best to resource the team of volunteers.

In this role you'll be:

Creating clear and pragmatic plans for delivering complex digital projects

Ensuring that team members have clearly defined technical project briefs, tasks and delivery plans and ensure they stick to agreed deadlines and processes

Documenting decisions, dependencies and reports on project progress to stakeholders

Actively identifying and managing risks in projects, removing roadblocks to ensure project schedules are met and quality is maintained

Evolving our methodology, creating and maintaining documented guidelines for project management to support successful delivery of projects

Mentoring and coaching our delivery teams on agile Project Management principles and practice and providing oversight when necessary

What you get out of it:

The chance to define the way a volunteer organisation runs digital projects

To experiment with new digital tools to make projects more efficient

To join a team of enthusiastic Project Managers highly motivated to deliver initiatives for other teams

The ability to work with a diverse product team and learn new skills

Time commitment

Each week you'll usually spend between 4-8 hours on Pride work. This includes a mixture of catchups, meetings and actual work. Depending on the projects we have on the go some weeks will be busier than others, but we know everyone has full time jobs and social lives so try to give plenty of notice of what's coming up.

We don't count it as Pride time, but the Digital team are a pretty social team and get together when we can for fun too.

What you’ll get joining Pride in London  

  • A friendly and welcoming induction course and a variety of training that’s offered throughout the year 
  • An opportunity to get new and relevant professional experience
  • A chance to broaden your professional network
  • Play an important part in delivering the Pride in London event 
  • Social opportunities to meet the diverse and friendly bunch who volunteer for Pride in London

Or, know someone who would be a perfect fit? Let them know!

Our Culture

Our volunteers are driven and passionate about what they do. Putting on one of London's largest one-day events requires dedication and perseverance. 

Although a lot of our work is completed remotely, there will be plenty of opportunities to meet with your team and others throughout the year to not only plan what's ahead but to socialise too. 

We're looking for enthusiastic people to join the organisation so we can provide a platform for every part of London’s LGBT+ community.
