£35,937.99 pro rata
War on Want also offers a 6% contributory pension scheme
Based in London office or home based depending on Covid-19 restrictions
(9 month Fixed Term Contract)

The COP26 Coalition is seeking a Communications & Digital Engagement Officer to join the team. This is an exciting opportunity to work with diverse organisations, networks and movements across Scotland, the UK and internationally in creating a series of digital and in person mobilisations on the ‘road to COP26’, culminating with a global day of action and 'Peoples' Summit' in November 2021.

Initially working remotely, you will be based in London and hosted by War on Want, with a Mobilisation Officer based in Glasgow, hosted by Friends of the Earth Scotland. The Mobilisation Officer and the Communications and Digital Engagement Officer will work closely to ensure a co-ordinated and successful delivery of mobilisation moments in the lead-up to COP26.

The post-holder will work with and alongside other key stakeholders such as NGOs, faith groups, trade unions, direct action groups, student and youth, migrant and racial justice, grassroots and international climate justice networks to ensure that popular mobilisations in response to the post COVID-19 economic crisis both integrate and centre climate demands, and anchor a ‘movement of movements’ approach.

The post-holder will need to be an excellent networker, highly organised, with a strong track record of planning and delivering communications and online engagement strategies. Reporting to the Coalition’s London based Coordinator, also hosted by War on Want, the role will work closely with Coalition Working Groups, in particular the Mobilisation and Communications Working Groups to deliver the agreed activities of the Coalition.

This is an exciting opportunity for a talented campaigner to play a key role in the planning and implementation of the Coalitions mobilisation and engagement strategy, both digital and in person, to mobilise existing and new audiences, in support of the demands of the international climate justice movement.
