Job description

Our specialised charity monitors and raises awareness of the environmental and humanitarian impact of armed conflicts and military activities. We are seeking a dynamic and energetic climate change campaigner to coordinate an international project to place military greenhouse gas emissions squarely onto the global agenda.

Position overview
Militaries are major polluters but it’s unclear how large their emissions are. Until last year, their emissions had been off the global climate change agenda for 25 years. Now NATO, and the UK, US and some other militaries are pledging reduction targets. The tide has begun to turn but we cannot leave militaries to dictate the pace of change or the level of ambition.

At COP26 in Glasgow we launched militaryemissions dot org, together with academic partners. Its aim is to communicate the huge gaps in the reporting of military emissions. We also began collaborating with a diverse range of civil society organisations. We now need someone to work with us as we build on this momentum ahead of COP27 and COP28.

The role
You will work with our Environmental Policy Officer, Research and Policy Director and academic partners to translate their research on military emissions into accessible advocacy materials. You will develop advocacy campaigns that will align with key events and develop and build a global network of civil society partners and the communication tools to support it. 

Core responsibilities

  • Monitoring the fast-moving policy environment around military emissions.

  • Creating innovative, engaging, authoritative and accessible communication materials.

  • Planning and implementing advocacy strategies around key events and initiatives.

  • Network building and engagement with stakeholders. 

  • Managing the campaign’s social media channels and online presence. 

Essential requirements

  • Excellent written and spoken English.

  • Excellent interpersonal and communication skills and the ability to communicate confidently and engagingly at all levels.

  • Research skills and the ability to communicate complex topics clearly.

  • Experience in writing accessible, accurate and compelling copy in a range of formats and to deadline. 

  • Experience in planning, delivering and evaluating campaigns.

  • Experience in coordinating groups of diverse stakeholders.

  • Experience in working with and speaking to the media.

  • Graphic design skills.

  • Excellent organisational skills, and experience in planning and delivering physical and virtual events.

  • A postgraduate degree in a relevant field, or equivalent professional experience.

  • Be able to demonstrate a sound understanding of climate change science, politics and the UNFCCC process.

  • A commitment to climate justice.

  • Able to undertake domestic and any essential international travel.

  • Be eligible to work in the UK.

Desirable requirements

  • Knowledge of or experience in anti-militarism advocacy or research.

  • Experience of working with external suppliers in the creation of publicity materials. 

  • Comfortable working in WordPress.

What we offer

  • Flexible working, with a range of home and office-based options that can be discussed at interview, as well as flexibility with the contracted hours on an exceptional basis.

  • Pension.

  • The opportunity for your work to have an impact globally, without being based in London. 

The post is currently funded until December 2023, with extensions subject to securing further funding. It is a full-time role contracted for 37.5 hours per week. Domestic travel will include meetings with our academic partners in the north of England, and representation at events. Some international travel will also be required. We offer 28 days holiday a year, plus UK Bank Holidays.

We are based close to Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, which offers direct access to beautiful countryside and a vibrant and progressive cultural life, or is 45 minutes by train from Leeds or Manchester.
