Then join Shelter as a Senior Digital Campaigner and you could soon be playing your part in bringing about positive change that will genuinely transform millions of people's lives. Shelter exists to defend the right to a safe home for everyone. We strive for change - with individuals, in communities and across society. A home is a fundamental human need and a basic moral right, yet in Britain today, that right is being denied to millions of people whose lives are blighted by homelessness, bad conditions, soaring rents, discrimination and the threat of eviction. Six million households are denied the right to a safe home, or are threatened with losing it. 4,750 people sleep on our streets on any given night. 90,000 households are stuck in unsuitable temporary accommodation.

You also know how to manage teams to ensure everyone's heard and team members feel ownership of the change they're a part of. Above all, you share our passion for making a difference to one of the biggest emerging social issues of our day - Britain's housing crisis.
