Nevada Conservation League Education Fund (NCLEF) seeks a field organizer to develop and implement strategic statewide campaigns on clean energy and toxics.

As the threat of global warming grows, NCLEF’s top priority remains building a clean energy economy and cutting dependence on dirty energy sources such as coal and oil.  NCLEF is also focused on other key public concerns such as the regulation of toxic chemicals and holding polluters accountable.  NCLEF will continue to wage these fights on many fronts in the coming year and are looking for a creative and skilled organizer with a knack for online work to help run these campaigns in Nevada.

General Description:

Working closely with NCLEF in Nevada, as well as with the League of Conservation Voters Education Fund in Washington, D.C., the Field Organizer will develop and implement campaigns that aim to move forward with critical new pollution rules for power plants and other major pollution sources, while also pushing the Obama Administration to implement the strongest pollution standards.  The Field Organizer will focus in part on holding Members of Congress accountable if they side with polluters in weakening public health protections.  The Field Organizer will also work to build support for new policies that regulate the most hazardous and toxic substances, many of which are currently unregulated.

Duties and Responsibilities:

  • Develop creative and strategic ideas that help engage the public and grow support

  • Work closely with existing coalition partners in Nevada to ensure efforts are collaborative and reach out to new groups in order to strengthen the coalition.

  • Serve as online and offline grassroots organizer to help build public pressure for the policies NCLEF supports.

  • Independently implement strategies and tactics that are developed with other staff members.

Qualifications:

  • Strong communication skills, particularly in the form of public outreach (action alerts and blogs).

  • Ability to multi-task and work in a fast-paced environment.

  • Experience initiating campaign ideas and willing to take risks.

  • Proven ability to organize campaigns that garner media coverage.

  • Ability to quickly synthesize new information and apply new tools accordingly.

  • Strong aptitude for technology and adept at using technological resources in a creative way.

  • Capability of integrating online communications and organizing with offline organizing, mobilization, and events.

  • Ability to work both independently and as a member of a team.

  • Minimum of 2-3 years relevant work experience

Salary is commensurate with experience.  This is a contract position based in Nevada that will run through completion of the campaign (approximately December 2011).
