Digital Movement-Builder

Posted: 05/08/22 | Deadline: 21/08/22

The Company:

Library of Things is a grassroots movement turned award-winning social enterprise. We help people to save money and reduce waste by affordably renting out useful items – like drills, sound systems & sewing machines. Having launched the service in 10 London neighbourhoods, we’re now looking to extend our reach and deepen our impact in each place – offering our members the chance to get to know each other and participate in easy, practical ways – both in-person and digitally.

The Digital Movement-Builder will work with Library of Things’ Marketing & Participation team to get more Londoners borrowing, participating, referring friends, and ultimately feeling more connected to their neighbours, neighbourhood and positive climate action.

Your Role:

  • Growing LoT’s community of members and allies through digital channels:
    – Make LoT’s multiple social media and newsletter channels sing, and make sure they’re helping us to reach new members and allies. You’ll hold the overall strategy for growing our organic social reach, following and engagement at a local and national level
    – Grow LoT’s bank of inspiring mission- and values-aligned stories – encouraging the team, members and partners to share theirs
    – Share joyful stories, images and messaging with LoT’s partners (like council sustainability teams and community venues) – so that they can easily spread the word
    – Support LoT’s team of distributed Local Community Marketers by providing ready-made messaging and content
  • Work with the partnerships team to promote early-stage campaigns for new LoT locations, inviting in relevant local allies and networks
  • Alongside LoT’s software and customer service teams, launch and activate a member-to-member messaging platform, onboarding and encouraging LoT members to ask for and receive help to use tools, share skills and tell stories

What good looks like (goals shared with wider team)

  • 1500+ people each year use their local Library of Things (LoT)
  • 200+ people each year participate in their local LoT and related projects
  • More people feel inspired to spread the word to friends and neighbours


  • More people say they know and trust their neighbours
  • More people adopt more sustainable behaviours (reuse, repair, staying local etc)

Your Profile:

  • Is experienced with facilitating community participation digitally (you love being the host at a party)
  • Is highly organised and efficient (like a joyful project manager)
  • Is skilled at human, joyful storytelling across multiple digital channels (you have an inner journalist)
  • Can easily whip up simple images using Canva or similar tools (you’re not a graphic designer but you have an eye for what looks good)
  • Has a great sense of humour and is a good team player


  • Ideally has 3-4 years experience working in a similar role, but we’re open to candidates who have other great experience to bring!
  • Has a nose for likely gatekeepers, networks and allies in a neighbourhood – the local newspaper, the Business Improvement District, the Tenant & Resident Associations, sustainability networks…

  • We’re our own best bosses – we encourage you to work when you work best with as little hierarchy as possible
  • We’re humans first, colleagues second – we check in before launching into business, we care about each other & our collective mental health
  • We’re open – no such thing as a silly or off-limits question, transparency around business decisions

Tangibly, benefits include:

  • 25 days holiday, plus bank holidays & between Christmas & New Year as standard;
