Based in London
£35,061.45 starting salary (pro rata), War on Want also offers a 6% contributory pension scheme
The UN climate talks (COP26) will take place in Glasgow from 9-20 November 2020. The UK COP26 Coalition is a broad UK-wide coalition through which civil society will plan together, share resources and learning, and organise a mass mobilisation and Peoples' counter-summit during the talks. It aims to support the transformation of the climate movement in the UK, to a stronger, more climate-justice centred movement long after COP26 is over.
We are recruiting two Co-Coordinators, one based in Glasgow, one based in London to coordinate a broad, diverse and inclusive coalition of civil society groups, working in a flexible and open way that allows for different levels of access and involvement, engaging established and new actors across the breadth of sectoral, thematic and regional spaces.
The successful applicants will need to be excellent networkers, highly organised, skilled in facilitation and communication with a wide range of audiences, have a strong track record of working with marginalised groups and an understanding of the wider political context around the climate summit.

UK COP26 Coalition Equal Opportunities Statement
The UK COP26 Coalition would particularly like to encourage applications from people of colour / black or brown people and people most impacted by climate change or impacted by other kinds of environmental, social, and economic injustice who are currently under-represented in the climate and environmental movements in the UK. The successful candidate will be selected purely on the basis of how well they fit the person specification, as judged by their application and interview. Where two or more candidates are judged to be of equal merit, priority may be given to a BME or migrant candidate as these groups are currently under-represented in the climate and environmental movements in the UK.
Due to the UK's racist border policies we are unable to arrange work permits for applicants without UK residency.
