Job description

Prospectus is delighted to be supporting a brand new not-for-profit called Uplift. Uplift is helping to move the UK towards a fossil fuel-free future. We strategically resource, connect and elevate ideas and voices to set in motion a just transition away from fossil fuel production that is commensurate with the scale of the climate crisis.

We are currently looking for a Head of Communications and Campaigns to join our growing team. This is an exciting opportunity to help build an ambitious movement to phase out oil and gas extraction in the UK. This role is offered on a full time or 4 days a week.

As Head of Campaigns and Communications, you will collaborate with key partners, including NGOs and grassroots movements, to develop and execute powerful campaign and communication strategies for transitioning away from oil and gas extraction. You will build and support a diverse network of organisations, constituencies and affected communities who are working towards our shared goals. You will also help to create stories that expose industry greenwashing and elevate the urgency of a just transition away from fossil fuel production.

The successful candidate for this position will have significant experience in a similar role with a track record of guiding and implementing effective campaign and communications strategies. You will have excellent analytical skills and a demonstrable ability to analyse changing political and social contexts with strong communication skills to influence and persuade. Finally, a strong commitment to Uplift's mission and core values is also required.

Given the unprecedented volume of interest in our roles, consultants are unable to support with general job search advice or specific enquiries before application. Instead please do either register your CV on our website or submit your CV for any roles that interest you to ensure that your application is reviewed in line with the position. Should you be successfully longlisted or we are able to assist in your job search we will be in contact to discuss next steps.
