Just Transition Campaigner
£25,271-31,594 (pro-rata), Edinburgh, 3 or 4 days a week

Friends of the Earth Scotland is looking for a Just Transition Campaigner. This is a new campaign role and you will work closely with the Director, Head of Campaigns, and colleagues across campaigns and activism to help deliver our work on just transition.

Over the past three years Friends of the Earth Scotland has been key to developing a narrative and advocating for a just transition to a zero carbon economy to deliver on our climate change commitments. The next two years will be critical in helping move this important agenda forward as the Just Transition Commission undertakes its work programme, and the Scottish Government develops plans for a National Investment Bank and a Publicly Owned Energy Company.

You will be a strong campaigner, with excellent communication skills and a good knowledge of relevant issues. You will have a naturally collaborative working style, and will thrive in a small, creative team. A good knowledge of the Scottish political and policy context would be a significant advantage.

To apply please go to www.foe.scot/jobs for more information, including a job description and application form. Please note: we do not accept CVs as part of a job application.

Closing date: Tuesday 7 May 10:00
Interviews: Tuesday 21 May
