People in poverty pay more for essentials such as energy, insurance and credit. This is known as the poverty premium. Fair By Design (FBD) is dedicated to ending the extra costs of being poor. FBD is run by the Barrow Cadbury Trust but please note it is not a grants programme.


We are looking for a talented individual to join our team. Using your communications and public affairs skills you will help us to achieve our mission of eliminating the poverty premium by 2028. We will be looking for you to play a significant role in ensuring our communications are persuasive and impactful and that our messages are heard by those in power. As part of a small team, flexibility is key and you will also be responsible for our internal communications and team support, from providing the secretariat to our Steering Group and supporting our evaluation work, to diary and event management.

We have a strong commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion and we encourage applications from people with personal experience of the social justice and human rights issues we seek to address.”
