Have you got the organisational skills to save the planet? Are you proactive, personable and passionate about solving the climate emergency? Do you find that you actually quite like a well-ordered spreadsheet? Could you be the new Administration and Campaigns Officer at Stop Climate Chaos Scotland?

With awareness increasing of the climate emergency, grass roots campaigns spreading, and the COP26 likely to come to Glasgow, it’s an exciting time to be at the centre of Scotland’s civil society coalition campaigning on climate change.

Stop Climate Chaos Scotland are seeking an Administration and Campaigns Officer to support the Coalition Manager and focus particularly on: organising the work of the coalition including managing coalition relationships; setting up, attending and minuting internal and external meetings; assisting in the management and delivery of campaign tasks.

This new post would suit someone who is naturally well-organised, a really good communicator and able to demonstrate initiative. You will have an eye for detail, and enjoy the challenge of organising meetings for our board and sub groups involving busy diaries and keeping track of hectic day-to-day schedules as well as contributing to the campaigning work of the coalition.

We are seeking someone with administrative experience, including some in finance, excellent communication and organisational skills and computer literacy (experience working with customer relationship management software could be useful).  You’ll be great at building effective relationships with people at all levels, both within our member organisations, and with external stakeholders. You’ll represent SCCS on social media, growing our following, managing the website, and helping expand our coalition and the climate movement beyond.

SCCS are hosted within the busy and friendly office of one of our member organisations and you will have daily contact with the members of our coalition, and potential members – from development and environment charities, to faith groups, unions and community groups. We are looking for someone who will take a proactive, flexible and pragmatic approach. You’ll be positive and solutions-focused and astute at juggling a variety of tasks.

This is a unique opportunity to make an impact at this incredibly exciting time for climate change campaigning. In an organisation where you are one of only two members of staff you will have ample opportunity for personal development within the role; to take on responsibility, to take the initiative and be challenged.  If this sounds like you – we need to hear from you.
