We’re Hiring: Community Organizer

The Vermont Natural Resources Council (VNRC), in partnership with the Vermont Conservation Voters (VCV), has an exciting opportunity for an outgoing person who wants to have a significant impact on the future of Vermont.

We are looking for a motivated person to help advance policy initiatives related to climate action, clean energy and environmental protection through grassroots engagement. The position will also assist VCV to help elect environmental champions to the Vermont legislature and statewide offices.

Job responsibilities include educating the public on our environmental campaigns, building the support we need to advance a pro-climate, pro-environment policy agenda, and elect environmental and climate champions to public office. The successful candidate will be self-directed and have good writing skills; be able to communicate effectively with a variety of audiences, including members and activists; be able to work collaboratively in a busy office environment; have experience in social media; and be committed to working on behalf of Vermont’s citizens, environment and communities.

Applicants should have a B.A. or B.S. in a relevant field (although pertinent life experience may be substituted for education) and, preferably, experience with an advocacy organization.

Starting salary is commensurate with experience. Email a letter of interest, resume, and three references to Lauren Hierl, VCV Executive Director, at lhierl@vermontconservationvoters.com. The position will remain open until filled, but we are hoping to have someone on board as soon as July, 2018.

VNRC and VCV are Equal Opportunity Employers.
