SumOfUs is looking for a Senior Climate Finance Campaigner to help us win campaigns against corporations behaving badly. If you love fighting for change, if you are excited about global economic justice, and if you are hungry to experiment with technology to change the world, then this might be the role for you.
This role will primarily focus on developing and executing strategic campaigns to cut off finance to fossil fuel projects. Our members power our work and we put them at the centre of everything we do. This role will be responsible for identifying impactful campaigns, developing winning tactics and leveraging our member’s power to create fundamental shifts in corporate behaviour and to reshape the global economy for the benefit of people and the planet.
This is a contract position for 6 months (40 hours per week) beginning in February 2022, with possible extension. The role is remote and can be undertaken by anyone in a timezone between UTC +5.5 (India Standard Time) and UTC +13 (New Zealand Standard Time)
SumOfUs is a global movement of consumers, investors, and workers standing together to hold corporations accountable for their actions and forge a new and sustainable path for our global economy. We are a movement of more than 15 million people, brought together by a global team of 35 campaigners, fundraisers, and operations staff who are passionate about creating a more caring, equitable society.
We are aiming to fundamentally reshape the global economy to put people and planet over profit, but we know we can not do it alone. We build partnerships with on-the-ground activists and organisers, and we follow their lead. We innovate, experiment and embrace professional and organisational growth. We invest in people and we invest in how we work, because our vision calls on us to build the most effective, global, diverse, and talented team possible.
We highly value a diverse and inclusive team and an equitable work environment where every member of our team is set up to thrive. We have taken steps to nurture this environment including an Anti-Oppression Leadership Team that leads work to transform injustice within the organisation. We expect all team members to take responsibility for co-creating an equitable work community where everyone is able to do impactful, world-changing work. We recruit and encourage people identifying with marginalized communities to apply.
We have no formal education requirements – if you can meet the responsibilities of the role and are willing to grow, that’s all that matters.
