5) Work independently

Campaign Organizer

Company: Impact Date Posted: 04/27/2018

 

Job Summary

Impact organizers go to the places that often decide whether a campaign will be won or lost. It could be a state that’s home to a swing-vote senator on critical legislation. It could be a city where a key decision is being made about clean energy.

By engaging the media, building new coalitions and activating civic leaders or student activists, our organizers not only help win campaigns now — we set the stage for winning the next campaign, too.

For example, when PIRG wanted to protect public health by reducing the overuse of antibiotics in the food industry, they brought in the Impact team. We organized doctors and nurses, small farmers, parents and consumers to convince Subway to take action. It worked. And the same coalition persuaded KFC to act as well.

During the summer, you direct a campaign office, building our partner organizations by canvassing and training others to canvass. In the summer of 2017, we defended our environmental and consumer protections from White House and congressional attempts to dismantle them.

With Impact, you make a difference now; the work you do builds the power we need to win more victories; and you gain the experience that PIRG, Environment America and other groups look for when hiring new advocates and campaign directors.

If you can see yourself next year organizing to make a difference for our environment, our democracy and our future, apply to join the Impact team.

Job Summary

U.S. PIRG is hiring a Digital Campaigner to work on one very big problem: stopping the overuse of antibiotics on factory farms.

Life-saving antibiotics are too important to squander, but that’s exactly what is happening due to the overuse of these drugs. Factory farms routinely administer antibiotics to livestock even when the animals are not sick, creating a breeding ground for antibiotic-resistant bacteria, aka superbugs. It’s the crutch of the industrial farming system, and it’s putting our health at risk.

In joining our team, you will urge more restaurant chains to follow the lead of Chipotle, Subway, and others in no longer serving meat raised on antibiotics. You’ll push for policy changes at the state and federal levels.

We are hiring a Digital Campaigner with sharp writing skills, design experience, savvy strategic ability and a talent for using social media.

In today’s world, no advocacy effort is complete without a significant online presence. People today turn to the web for their information, to learn about issues and to take action. Your efforts as an online campaigner will be key to any successful campaign.

With U.S. PIRG, you’ll get great experience, be part of a team, and change the world.

Duties and Responsibilities:

The digital campaigner will exercise independent judgment and discretion in the following areas and take on other projects as assigned:

  • Collaborate with policy experts and advocates to translate complex policy and campaign messaging into compelling, bite sized pieces of digital content.
  • Write emails and campaign actions that you’ll send to hundreds of thousands of supporters to build our efforts to stop the overuse of antibiotics on farms.
  • Design and curate content for social media and organizational websites.
  • Develop creative online tactics to fundraise and turn potential supporters into committed action takers.
  • Track and analyze key metrics to continually improve our performance and develop best practices.
  • Keep up on and implement emerging digital trends and strategies, technologies, and best practices by regularly communicating with allies and digital professionals and attending conferences and trainings.  

Minimum Requirements/Qualifications:

  • You can write persuasively and boil complex issues down to a single sentence.
  • You have an opinion about what works online and can point to examples to back it up.
  • You're excited to learn new tools and aren’t afraid of HTML.
  • You have an opinion about political issues, want to make a difference, and are excited about calling out special interests standing in the way.
  • You understand that a strict blue vs. red perspective doesn’t capture the essence of many political battles.
  • You want to push solutions that have broad appeal.
  • You have built something from scratch.
  • You sweat the details.

Locations:

Portland, ME or Boston, MA
