Environment Maryland is seeking a campaign associate to help coordinate campaigns to reduce plastic waste and pollution.
Every day people are throwing away tons of single-use cups, containers,packaging, and other plastic “stuff.” Nothing we use for a few minutes should be allowed to pollute our oceans and rivers and threaten wildlife for centuries. That’s why Environment Maryland is calling on state leaders to take action to reduce single use plastics and shift towards more producer responsibility.
We are seeking a Campaign Associate who will spearhead this campaign and work with our experienced team of advocates, researchers, and digital and communications experts.
Entry-level candidates are encouraged to apply; we provide training on advocacy and organizing skills, as well as oversight and on-the-ground training by an experienced advocate. Ideal candidates will have leadership experience, top-notch written and verbal skills, an eagerness to learn, and be ready for a challenge. We value organizing experience, including building campus or community groups.
Compensation & Benefits
The target annual compensation for this position is $28,000-$30,000 in the first year. Environment Maryland offers a competitive benefits package. We also offer an excellent training program and opportunities for advancement.
We’re also hiring Campaign Associates to work on other campaigns in locations across the country. We accept applications on a rolling basis. For the foreseeable future, all of our staff are working remotely due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We’re looking to fill this position as soon as possible, but it will be open until August 2021.
