Join the Environment Virginia Transportation team and help launch our Destination: Zero Carbon campaign.
Transportation is now America’s number one source of global warming pollution, with greenhouse emissions from cars, trucks, buses and other vehicles surpassing every other source. We now have the technology and policy know-how to change this. That’s why here in Virginia we’re launching Destination: Zero Carbon, a campaign to electrify cars and buses, and to reduce the need to drive by making it easier, cheaper and more enjoyable to travel on foot, bike or public transit.
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. The Public Interest Network 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. This position starts in August 2021.
