Senior Climate Organizer
You’ll work with awesome people. Join a team of seasoned, kind, determined, optimistic, and solutions-oriented folks. We work hard, celebrate victories large and small, and always have each other’s backs.
You’ll be a part of fearless and winning campaigns. When your quest is ending corporate abuse, you can’t be afraid to name names and stick to your guns. For 40 years, we’ve been exposing and challenging the abuses of the likes of Nestlé, Exxon Mobil, Philip Morris International, McDonald’s, Dow Chemical, and more. We don’t back down, and we run campaigns until we win.
You’ll be part of an organization committed to advancing racial equity and transforming systems of oppression. We are deeply committed to prioritizing the leadership of those who bear the brunt of corporate abuse: women, people of color, low-income people, people in the Global South, and LGBTQ folks around the world. Our unique culture has been fostered by a long history of women at the helm. We know we are stronger when the organization reflects the vision of the world we’re building together.
- The rampant abuses of corporations and the outrageous amount of power they have make you mad as hell—and you want to do something about it.
- You understand that changing the imbalance of power in the world, its inherent racial injustice, and the oppression people of color experience is a critical part of your work for justice. You have a commitment to advancing racial equity and transforming systems of oppression.
- You passionately believe that relationship-based organizing is how we change the world—and you have the experience to back it up. Whether it’s on climate, racial, economic, gender, or other social justice issues, you have experience successfully working across lines of difference in a U.S. context to mobilize and activate diverse groups of people toward a shared goal and vision. You do it so well because you interact from a place of genuine belief in and respect for people’s inherent power, agency, and ability to create change.
- You have solid experience managing projects from start to finish, meeting tough deadlines, and managing both up and laterally to get what you need. You are successful at creating and managing your own work plans that track toward weekly, monthly, and yearly goals.
- You can work under pressure, and can come up with creative solutions when unexpected situations arise. When something doesn’t go as planned, you’re ready to adapt to changes and challenges and adjust to get back on track.
- You’re a self-starter. You work well with a team, but you’re equally happy setting off on your own to organize, creatively solve the problems that arise, and drive toward your goals.
- You have at least three to five years of organizing experience, ideally in environmental justice, climate justice, or related work.
- Organize current and potential Corporate Accountability members and activists in the U.S. to execute campaign tactics to hold Big Polluters accountable and end Big Polluters’ stranglehold over climate policy.
- Support the leadership development of people across the U.S. who are eager to do their part in addressing the climate crisis, via in-person and virtual trainings and one-on-one conversations.
- Drive the creation of, and implement, strategic campaign tactics that are informed by and build the power and impact of Corporate Accountability members and activists.
- Manage complex organizing projects and coordinate with a global campaign team.
- Serve as a spokesperson for the campaign: internalize campaign messaging and be able to skillfully communicate with reporters and interviewers on the record or on background, on the phone, on radio or TV, or at live events.
- Enthusiastically participate in organization-wide planning, fundraising, recruitment, and campaign activities.
- Salary range: $47,500 to $55,000, commensurate with experience.
- Our comprehensive benefit package includes health insurance (with 90% of the premium for all tiers covered by the organization) and dental coverage (with 100% of the individual premium covered by the organization and the option to add dependents at an additional cost); FSA for transit, health care, and dependent care; and 401(k) with employer match.
- Generous vacation, sick time, and holiday policies.
- Both internal and external training and leadership development opportunities.
- Energetic Campaign Headquarters complete with open, collaborative work spaces and a big, social kitchen.
- Salary is $47,500.00 – $55,000.00.
- Attach your résumé to the online application and include a cover letter.
- Please include where you heard about the position.
