The COP26 Coalition is seeking a Mobilisation Officer to join the team. This is an exciting opportunity to work with diverse organisations, networks and movements across Scotland, the UK and internationally in creating a series of mobilisations on the ‘road to COP’, culminating with a global day of action and ‘Peoples’ Counter Summit’ in November 2021. This post is hosted by Friends of the Earth Scotland.
We are open to secondments for this post.
From 1-12 November 2021, the UN climate talks (COP26) will take place in Glasgow. The COP26 Coalition is a broad UK-wide coalition of representatives from NGOs, faith groups, trade unions, direct action groups, student and youth, migrant and racial justice, grassroots and international climate justice networks, set up to coordinate activities around this crucial summit.
Initially working remotely, you will be based in Glasgow and hosted by Friends of the Earth Scotland, with a Communications and Digital Engagement Officer based in London, hosted by War on Want. The Mass Mobilisation Officer and the Communications and Digital Engagement Officer will work closely to ensure a co-ordinated and successful delivery of mobilisation moments in the lead-up to COP26.
The post-holder will work with and alongside other key stakeholders such as NGOs, faith groups, trade unions, direct action groups, student and youth, migrant and racial justice, grassroots and international climate justice networks to ensure that popular mobilisations in response to the post COVID-19 economic crisis both integrate and centre climate demands, and anchor a ‘movement of movements’ approach.
The post-holder will need to be an excellent networker, highly organised, with a strong track record of mobilising large numbers of people and delivering large-scale events, both in person and online. Reporting to the Coalition’s Glasgow Coordinator, also hosted by FoES, the role will will work closely with Coalition Working Groups, in particular the Mobilisation, and Glasgow Local Working Groups, to deliver the agreed activities of the Coalition.
This is an exciting opportunity for a talented organiser to play a key role in the planning and implementation of the Coalitions mobilisation and engagement strategy, both digital and in person, to mobilise existing and new audiences, in support of the demands of the international climate justice movement.
