Climate change is one of the defining issues of our time – impacting our health, our safety and our livelihoods now and for generations to come. Despite growing awareness and increased public mobilization on this issue, we are not yet on track to contain this threat. But we can be. Humanity has the solutions and the pathways to end this crisis, and collectively we can make this decade be the one for climate action. Sounds compelling? We think so too. The Marketing and Communications team at ClimateWorks Foundation plays a key role in building awareness, generating funder interest, and promoting philanthropic collaborations that can help end the climate crisis. We’re a quickly growing team, working to expand the organization’s impact, outreach, and engagement with philanthropies, partners, and grantees globally.
We’re looking for a creative, senior marketing and communications team leader to head up our program marketing team. The successful candidate will have significant experience developing and executing campaigns, creating powerful narratives that connect emotionally, and building and leading a communications team in a fast-growing environment with a global mission and impact. Our program marketing team at is a burgeoning group of comms pros who each manage a portfolio of ClimateWorks global programs in areas like zero-emissions transport, clean industry, and sustainable finance. Working closely with the programs leaders, program marketing collaborates to help translate the program vision and strategy into thoughtful, compelling, and results-oriented communications plans that are designed to amplify the important program work our grantees and partners are doing in this climate fight. Focused on a range of efforts from launching initiatives to promoting reports and impact stories and building awareness of the solution areas, the campaigns leverage multiple channels, including web, email, social media, and earned media, to elevate program work and deepen engagement with our key audiences across our global networks. We are looking for someone who can bring fresh ideas and perspectives, through their work or lived experiences, to help frame new narratives that can inspire philanthropic action on climate change.
