Do you believe passionately in the power of people to make change happen? Join Friends of the Earth's Campaign Activism team to put people power at the heart of our campaigns, grow our grassroots network and strengthen the movement for climate and environmental justice.
As our Senior Campaign Activism Advisor, you’ll help design our activism strategies for maximum real-world change, ensure there are varied opportunities for activists to lead and participate in campaigns, whilst also trialling new ways of bringing people together to take action. Solid project management and a flexible approach is key, as you juggle the demands of a multi-campaign organisation, sometimes responding to rapidly changing circumstances and working to longer term campaign strategies.
Key Skills and Attributes:
You will have a firm grasp of what makes a winning campaign strategy, experience of planning and delivering campaigns with colleagues and activists, and significant experience of supporting activists and/or community groups. You’ll be able to lead a team, and deliver key projects with organisational wide significance. You will have a track record of successful outreach to new and diverse audiences - and be able to build meaningful activist journeys.
You will be based in the Campaign Activism team, which sits at the heart of our work to grow, deepen and diversify our network of environmental justice activists, building and leveraging people power to win campaigns and achieve change.
A significant part of this role will be co-leading our United for Warm Homes campaign, with a focus on the grassroots strategy. You’ll work with partners, local action groups and people from across the organisation to ensure we achieve the campaign goal of warm homes for all.
