politjobs job alert UK 2017-42 – more passionate, more organised

A majority can always be trumped by a minority if the latter are more passionate, more organised and have at least one good argument on their side. This is not just true for the uber case, Gavin Devine is writing about, but as well for most political issues. A small number of visionaries, activist or lobbyist is convincing the rest of the community, country or world, that their political approach is the way it has to be. Uber lost its case because the other side cared more, and was persistent enough to find an issue – safety – that allowed them to achieve their goals, says Devine. Now it turns out that people are angry about Uber losing its licence, and more than half a million can be motivated to sign a petition to protest. But how about making sure these voices are heard before the event? Uber and of course many others simply do not invest enough time in harnessing the enthusiasm of their users – at least until it is too late. It is true that communicators are able to build communities of motivated and vocal advocates amongst consumers. Maybe it would be worth the investment – even for US tech giants. If you are such a communicator find attached some jobs and as usual more at politjobs.uk!
