The Climate Parliament is an international network of Members of Parliament concerned about the climate emergency and committed to accelerating the global transition to clean energy. We work mainly with national legislators in Africa, Asia, the Arab region and Latin America. Among other activities, we organise international parliamentary roundtable meetings at which MPs learn about climate and energy issues, exchange experience, and become part of a network of like-minded colleagues. We have had a major impact on renewable energy budgets, laws and policies in a number of countries.
Over the next years, we will be collaborating with the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office of the UK coordinating international partnerships for a research project on sustainable energy and transport. The Climate Parliament also collaborates with the European Commission and the UN Industrial Development Organisation on a project to engage African, Arab and small island legislators on issues of climate, clean energy, sustainable transport and energy access. These programmes will include a series of parliamentary roundtable meetings, both online and in person. In parallel, we will be convening meetings in collaboration with other donors.
We are looking for a Network Coordinator based in or near London or Brighton. The Network Coordinator will help to identify the best MPs to invite, organise roundtable meetings, manage the Climate Parliament website and social media, write detailed minutes of meetings, write and review news items for the website, write donor proposals and reports, and handle administrative tasks. The Network Coordinator will help research and develop action recommendations for the MPs. The salary before tax will be £30,000 per annum.
