The main purpose of this role is to develop and implement the overall divestment strategy, ensuring that there is connection with local divestment campaigners and national campaigns to help grow a stronger UK divestment network. You will be supporting activists, local groups, and politicians to push institutions and political bodies to divest from fossil fuels and break ties with fossil fuel companies.
