Environmental Defense Campaign Director
Attention Job Seekers: In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, we want to assure you that Environment America is actively hiring for this position, and we welcome your applications.
The damage we’re doing to the planet is just heartbreaking: climate change, plastic pollution, wildlife disappearing forever. But the solutions are all around us, practically begging us to adopt them: solar and wind power, electric cars and buses, more walkable and “bikeable” cities, reusing and repairing stuff instead of throwing it away, and on and on. Environment America is seeking an Environmental Defense Campaign Director to promote our policy agenda and lead our D.C.-based advocacy team.
The Environmental Defense Campaign Director will work with our staff of researchers, campaign staff and communications experts to develop and implement advocacy campaigns at the federal level. The legislative agenda will balance proactive policies with a robust defense of the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, the Endangered Species Act and other important environmental protections that have come under attack in Washington, D.C.
We do what it takes to turn public opinion and political momentum toward a greener, healthier world. If you want to work hard, challenge yourself, and make an actual impact on the critical environmental issues of our time, then consider a career with Environment America.
The ideal candidate will be:
Experience as a legislative advocate within Congress, a state legislature or another organization is a plus but not required.
Target annual compensation for this position is commensurate with the relevant professional experience and/or advanced degrees that a candidate has. Environment America offers a competitive benefits package
