Uplift is an organisation that uses research, campaigning, and advocacy to support a just transition away from fossil fuels in the UK on a timeline that is commensurate with a safe climate. We are currently looking for a Legal Campaigns Lead to help coordinate creative legal advocacy, litigation and public facing campaigns that are driven forward by Uplift and its partners. This is an exciting opportunity to support the movement to phase out fossil fuel extraction.
As Legal Campaigns Lead, you will coordinate Uplift’s legal campaigns to ensure that our legal advocacy has maximum political and corporate impact during a critical moment in the energy transition. This includes strategic litigation targeting fossil fuel companies and public policy, as well as advocacy focused on reforming key legal frameworks governing oil and gas extraction in the UK. Uplift envisages this litigation to be strongly supported by a communications and campaign strategy, including mobilising public support for the aims of the litigation, high-profile media coverage, and collaboration with campaign partners to increase public and media engagement with litigation. Uplift previously coordinated the Paid to Pollute litigation, which provides an example of the kind of legal campaigning that this role would support.
Reporting to Uplift’s Legal and Policy Adviser, you will work closely with Uplift’s legal and campaigns teams to determine the right partners, campaign tools and tactics for each of Uplift’s legal campaigns, and you will be responsible for ensuring that these campaigns are effectively coordinated and executed. You will work with a range of external partners, including campaigning organisations, grassroots activists, and vendors and consultants who can help us deliver on campaign objectives. You will not be required to provide any input to the litigation itself, which will be managed by Uplift’s in-house lawyers and external legal teams.
The successful candidate will have exceptional project management skills, including for complex projects, and an ability to align and motivate partners to deliver on ambitious timelines and outcomes. Legal experience is not necessary, although a keen interest in climate and/or human rights-related legal advocacy is desirable, and any previous experience with litigation-related campaigning is a significant advantage. A strong commitment to Uplift's mission and core values is also required.
Core responsibilities will include:
- Support the development of the overall strategy for Uplift’s legal campaigns, including objectives, tactics, partnerships and milestones.
- Oversee the coordination of legal campaigns, which will include:
- Helping to identify and build relationships with key partners
Developing shared work plans with partners and overseeing the implementation of work plans, including by facilitating meetings and implementing joint project management tools where appropriate.
Coordinating with outside vendors and consultants.
Tracking the implementation of campaign tactics and keeping partners motivated and aligned around milestones in the campaign strategy, including the ability to sequence outputs appropriately and anticipate and bridge any gaps.
Tracking financial management of campaigns to ensure they stay within budget.
Managing multiple campaign work plans simultaneously.
Our ideal candidate will have:
- Experience in a similar or related role.
- A track record of managing and delivering successfully on complex, multi-partner projects, particularly ambitious communications-heavy campaigns.
- A strong understanding of effective campaigning, including the inter-play between different campaign tactics.
- Excellent interpersonal communication skills, including an ability to quickly build trust with partners address and resolve conflicts
- A high degree of motivation and initiative, and an ability to work relatively autonomously when needed.
- Exceptionally high standards, and associated qualities needed to work in a dynamic organisation with an ambitious agenda.
- A strong commitment to Uplift’s mission and core values of equity and climate justice.
- Experience working to support climate or human rights-related legal advocacy is highly desirable, but not essential.
Benefits: 3% employer pension contribution, Employee Assistance Programme, consideration of flexible working requirements and work/workplace adjustments where required
