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!

Forty-seven years since the first Pride march in London, 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; together we pull off the UK’s biggest free LGBTQ+ community event every year. Pride aims to raise awareness of LGBTQ+ issues and campaign for the freedoms that will allow all of our community to live their lives on a genuinely equal footing.

Around 150 people volunteer year-round to help us deliver what has become a world-class Pride. We welcome applications from everybody, and are especially keen to attract new volunteers from the BAME, Trans, Bi, Non-binary and Queer communities who we would love to see more widely represented in our organisation.


Your new team

Our award-winning Marketing team help us to produce world-class multi-channel campaigns with global reach. The Marketing team play a pivotal part in designing our out-of-home, TV and online advertisement. They're also responsible for the design and development of our website and app. 


Your new volunteer role

You’ll be second in command to the Director of Marketing to lead our award-winning and diverse team of marketing creatives and professionals. This includes developing the overall strategy and concept of Pride in London’s annual campaign (previous examples include Pride Jubilee, Love Happens Here and No Filter). You’ll collaborate closely with the various sub functions that make up our Marketing directorate, and cross functionally with other teams such as Operations, Communications and Strategic Partnerships to activate the campaign.

Day to day duties include:

  • Deputising for the DoM at Board Meetings
  • Leading on campaign development as the primary point of contact for agencies we work with on the main campaign
  • Planning and running Marketing Team Meetings
  • Supporting the Director of Marketing in other areas including brand, media, events, fundraising and digital
  • Acting as an additional marketing point of contact for internal and external partners
  • Helping across on-the-day branding
  • Working with other Deputy Directors across the organisation to ensure clear communication between marketing and other teams
  • Ensuring Pride in London continues produce world-class multi-channel campaigns with global reach.
  • Build and nurture relationships with media owners, partners and agencies.
  • Measure the value and impact of Pride in London’s Media output.

  • Able to demonstrate tangible experience of delivering results by managing 3rd party agencies
  • A solid list of contacts in the marketing and advertising worlds would be very attractive

  • Experience managing meetings and large teams
  • You’ll have first rate project management skills able to deliver complex, integrated campaigns on time and to budget
  • We need an adept multi-tasker; used to managing multiple projects and multiple stakeholders simultaneously
  • You’ll be a creative person; bursting with ideas and enthusiasm

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.
