Job Description

Environment CO is seeking an entry level Campaign Associate to join our team.

 

Every day, we see more heartbreaking evidence of the damage being done to our planet: climate change, plastic pollution, wildlife disappearing forever. But we also see the solutions all around us, practically begging us to adopt them: solar and wind power, electric cars and buses, more walkable and “bikeable” cities, reusing and repairing stuff instead of throwing it away, and on and on.

 

Environment Colorado’s mission is to transform the power of our imaginations and our ideas into change that makes our world a greener and healthier place for all.

 

Entry-level candidates are encouraged to apply; we provide training on advocacy and organizing skills, as well as oversight and on-the-ground training by an experienced advocate. Ideal candidates will have leadership experience, top-notch written and verbal skills, an eagerness to learn, and be ready for a challenge. We value organizing experience, including building campus or community groups.

 

TYPICAL RESPONSIBILITIES:

 

  • Build powerful coalitions: Reach out to like-minded organizations and affected constituency groups to demonstrate support for our campaign goals. 

 

  • Earn traditional media and social media attention: Organize news conferences and write opinion pieces. Build a following on Facebook and Twitter for your campaign.

 

  • Lobby elected officials: Coordinate strategy with champions in Congress. Make a convincing case to legislators who are undecided on a particular vote. When a critical vote is happening on your campaign, work to demonstrate the support you’ve been building on the ground to help line up the votes needed to win.

 

  • Research and write reports: Catalogue and analyze data relevant to the issue and our policy proposals to help influence public debate and earn media attention for our cause.

 

  • Identify and cultivate donors: Reach out to foundations and major donors and ask them to fund your campaign.

 

  • Recruit new people to your team: Help build your team recruiting volunteers, interns and full-time staff.

 

  • Run a grassroots campaign office each summer: Run a campaign office for the summer to raise money to support our campaigns, build our organization and membership, and help build critical and timely grassroots support to win key campaigns while honing your organizing and management skills.

 

COMPENSATION & BENEFITS

 

The target annual compensation for this position is $28,500-$30,000 in the first year. NC PIRG offers a competitive benefits package. We also offer an excellent training program and opportunities for advancement.
