Environment America is seeking an experienced advocate/organizer to lead our Clean Energy team. This person will work with our national program team, local organizers, and other key allies across the country to build momentum, expand support, and win policies to accelerate the shift to renewable energy.
American dependence on dirty energy sources like coal, oil, gas and nuclear energy contributes to global warming, pollutes our air, land and water and leaves a legacy of waste. For the sake of our health and our environment and to protect the quality of life of future generations, we must shift from dirty to pollution-free energy options as quickly as possible.
To achieve this end, Environment America is working to build a drumbeat of demand for clean energy. To gain support, we are highlighting the benefits associated with clean energy, educating the public about the problems caused by reliance on fossil fuels, and working to get more citizens, more opinion leaders, more people and more organizations representing varied and powerful constituencies engaged in the effort to transition the nation from dirty to clean energy.
Candidates should have a significant career track record of leadership within citizen based social change organizations or within the clean energy sector. We’re seeking a goal-driven, results-oriented individual with excellent verbal, writing and analytical skills, the ability to speak persuasively in a charged atmosphere, and enthusiasm for the work. Candidates must have excellent judgment and discretion and the ability to oversee significant projects. The Clean Energy Program Director will report directly to the Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Programs.
The ideal candidate will have experience with organizing, political advocacy and policy development, a proven ability to recruit, train, and develop staff and volunteers, fundraising experience, and demonstrated success in building relationships with environmental and political stakeholders.
