Hiring: Fossil Free Politics campaign coordinator, Brussels!
The Fossil Free Politics campaign, launched in October 2019 by Corporate Europe Observatory, Friends of the Earth Europe, Greenpeace Europe and Food and Water Action Europe, and supported by over 200 organisations, wants to stop the involvement of the fossil fuel industry in democratic decision making to halt climate chaos, fix our energy system, and protect people and planet. Similar to existing restrictions on tobacco industry lobbyists, we campaign for a firewall that cuts fossil fuel interests off from policy making: no more preferential treatment, private lobby meetings or partnerships.
Two years after the launch of the campaign, we are now aiming at reaching another level of impact on the public debate, increasing civil society and political support.
Currently, we are five organisations in the core coalition: Corporate Europe Observatory, Friends of the Earth Europe, Greenpeace Europe, Food and Water Action Europe and Global Witness, with a team of around 10 people, most of us based in Brussels.
We are looking for an experienced and highly motivated coordinator to further strengthen the Fossil Free Politics coalition and campaign, broaden awareness of our vision and demands and oversee the implementation of key campaign activities. You will support the functioning of the coalition; develop the campaign with new allies, activities and increased visibility; reach out to EU decision makers; produce campaign content and help with strategy and evaluation processes. You will work independently but coordinate closely with campaigners and the communication teams from the core coalition’s organisations.
Your main tasks will be to:
• lead and coordinate campaign activities for the coalition;
• Minimum three years of experience in civil society campaigning and coalition-building;
• a contract of 4 days a week (32 hours per week) from February 2022
How to apply

We encourage applications from anyone who believes they fit the essential requirements of the job, irrespective of age, disability, gender identity or sexual orientation, pregnancy, marital or parental status, ethnicity, or religion / belief.
