Climate and Clean Energy Campaign Manager - Washington Environmental Council

Opportunity Type: Job

In the wake of a historic Washington State legislative session for climate, passing an economy-wide price on carbon, establishing a clean fuel standard, and making important investments for climate action, WEC/WCV is seeking a thoughtful, enterprising and people-oriented Climate and Clean Energy Campaign Manager to advance policy and campaigns that move our state to the next level for climate action.

WEC/WCV’s work in Climate & Clean Energy has three interwoven elements: establish equitable and impactful climate policy; deepen and expand relationships in community and across coalitions to advance climate action; and translate climate policies and campaigns into action. This position includes campaign development, management, and participation, policy analysis and development, and strategy development and deployment. This is a full-time position, supervised by WEC/WCV’s Climate and Fossil Fuel Program Director. Position location is flexible, and may be based either out of WEC’s office in Seattle, WA or remotely from another location in Washington State. If outside Seattle, travel will be required to attend in-person office and coalition meetings, at the discretion of the Program Director.

This position will work as part of the Climate and Fossil Fuel Program to manage distinct legislative and policy and/or sector-specific campaigns to advance our climate goals, along with manage specific policy work associated with our climate and clean energy goals. Campaign management in this context means managing goals, strategies and tactics across different sectors, partners & coalitions (internal & external) and levels of government to achieve intended outcomes – this can be in the context of a sector-specific campaign (e.g. advocating for more clean and equitable transportation investments); state legislative campaigns (e.g. passing a clean fuel standard); local government legislative campaigns (e.g. advocating for a strong climate action plan within a local community); and/or policy specific campaigns (e.g. removing gas from buildings).  Responsibilities include strategy development and implementation, relationship-building and maintenance, coalition leadership and participation, campaign management and development, translating wins at the state level to local action and conversely local action to state action opportunities, as well as engaging in rulemaking and implementation work of significant climate wins.

This is a full time, exempt position with a salary range of $51k-$61K depending on experience.  We also offer a generous benefits package including 100% employer paid medical, vision and dental insurance, 401k plan and organizational match of up to 3% of your annual salary, access to a Flexible Spending Account, three weeks paid vacation to start, paid sick leave, ten paid holidays per year, an Employee Assistance Program, and a wellness benefit. If you work for seven consecutive years you are eligible for an eight week paid sabbatical. We welcome new and diverse people to a great team who together shape environmental protection in Washington. This position is open until 5 pm on June 4th.
