We encourage applicants to apply by August 26, 2019. This position is open until filled.
Stand.earth is a nonprofit environmental organization working to create a world where respect for people and the environment comes first. Our campaigns challenge destructive corporate and governmental practices, demand accountability, and create solutions that support all of us — and the environment and climate we depend upon. Stand’s strategic approach and fierce determination have yielded extraordinary results: Since 1999, we’ve secured the protection of 65 million acres of wilderness, shifted billions of dollars of corporate purchasing toward responsible options, and changed the environmental practices of more than 100 major U.S. corporations. Stand.earth operates in the United States and Canada.
Stand recognizes and respects the sovereignty of First Nations and tribes, as well as the rights of indigenous people and frontline communities. These communities are often first and most directly impacted, and they provide critical leadership in developing solutions.
Stand is an equal opportunity employer; we have a strong commitment to equity and inclusion, and value the leadership and skills of people from diverse backgrounds. People of color, LGBTQ persons, and people from other historically marginalized backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
Reporting to the International Programs Director, the Campaigns Director will have deep experience in global climate campaigning/policy, and experience building and managing campaigns including budgeting, team leadership, strategic planning and coalition building. This position will work closely with the fundraising and digital teams, and must have a strong interest and/or commitment to Stand.earth’s values. Stand.earth offers an excellent package of employee and health benefits.
The location for this position is in one of our hub offices in Bellingham, WA; San Francisco, CA; or Vancouver BC.
Stand.earth is leading campaigns focused on transforming the apparel and shipping industries. These industries combined currently account for 13% of international greenhouse gas emissions, and that share is projected to grow to 25% of international greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. These are critical sectors in the work towards a climate safe future. While these campaigns are scaling up, we are seeking a highly motivated International Climate Campaigns Director who is passionate about managing these campaigns and potentially others as we attempt to reverse the trend of greenhouse gas emissions.
