Cool Earth is looking for an ambitious and inspirational Communications Manager to cover a 12-month maternity contract.
Cool Earth is the charity that works alongside indigenous villages to halt rainforest destruction. Over the last ten years, Cool Earth has used its community-led model to save at-risk rainforest. Unlike any other rainforest NGO, Cool Earth protects forest by empowering the people who live there. We don’t buy land or create reserves. We make sure rainforest protection goes hand in hand with better lives.
Cool Earth’s success is down to a light touch approach that puts local people back in control of their forest. By helping to build incomes that depend on the forest being kept safe, we work to ensure that forest protection becomes self-funding.
Cool Earth is not funded by governments. Instead, we are supported by a loyal group of businesses, trusts, individuals and fundraisers. Their commitment to Cool Earth’s pioneering model has created a network of village partners in the Amazon, Congo and Oceania that each year recruit more communities to join in keeping their rainforest standing.
Everything that Cool Earth does starts with our rainforest partners. That’s why you’ll work alongside our projects team to produce exciting, surprising and compulsive content about everything that Cool Earth does to save rainforest and strengthen village life in Peru, the DR Congo and Papua New Guinea.
You will be responsible for developing and implementing Cool Earth’s campaigns and Communications strategy and making sure it is delivered as effectively as possible across our website, social media channels and through supporter updates.
All candidates should have an excellent command of written English, the ability to work calmly under pressure, exceptional creative vision and delight in working with an ambitious team.
