Environment New Jersey is seeking a campaign associate to help coordinate campaigns to protect New Jersey's high quality waterways that provide drinking water, recreational value and key habitat for threatened species from the impacts of overdevelopment and run-off pollution.
The most powerful tool to protect our water quality is to stop pollution before it happens. This concept -- antidegradation -- is enshrined in the Clean Water Act, and nearly 50 years after its passage, we still need to protect our waters so they are fishable and swimmable. That is why Environment New Jersey is running a campaign to advocate for stronger protections for the lower section of the Delaware River to allow for primary contact, including swimming, targeting a regional agency. New Jersey's waters are hidden gems -- and we need to keep them that way.
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 New Jersey offers a competitive benefits package. We also offer an excellent training program and opportunities for advancement.
