Friends of the Earth Scotland is looking for a new Climate and Energy Campaigner. This is a new key campaign role within Friends of the Earth Scotland (FoES) which builds on the work done in our Community Power project. You will work closely with the Director and the Head of Campaigns to help deliver our core Fossil Free Scotland campaign, through work on climate and energy policy and practice.
In the next two years Scotland will be finalising the new Climate Change Plan, creating a new Climate Change Act with more ambitious targets and developing another Climate Change Plan to deliver these targets, all at a time when the world urgently needs good examples of action on climate change. New targets for community energy are under development, but the UK Government's approach to renewable energy support is a serious threat. You will campaign for the positive, people-centred solutions that are essential in delivering the transformation to a fossil free Scotland. FoE Scotland has already played a key role in getting action on climate change and renewable energy and you will help us do even more at a crucial time.
You will be a strong campaigner, with excellent communication skills and a good knowledge of climate and energy policy. You will have a naturally collaborative working style, and will thrive in a small, creative team. A good knowledge of the Scottish political context and of climate and energy policy would be a significant advantage.
The campaign includes working with Friends of the Earth groups and other key partners around the world.
Please note: we do not accept CVs as part of a job application.
