The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) is a non-profit environmental advocacy organization. We use law, science, and the support of 3.1 million members and online activists to protect the planet's wildlife and wild places and to ensure the rights of all people to clean air, clean water, and healthy communities. NRDC was founded in 1970 and our staff helped write some of America's bedrock environmental laws, including the Clean Water Act, and many of the implementing regulations. Today, our staff of more than 700 lawyers, scientists, economists, policy advocates, communications experts, and others work across the United States and internationally from our offices in New York; Washington, D.C.; Chicago; Santa Monica; San Francisco; Bozeman, Montana; and Beijing.
NRDC is seeking a Western Digital Campaign Manager to work with the Communications department in our Santa Monica or San Francisco office.
NRDC’s top priority is tackling the global climate crisis. As part of this work, NRDC is increasingly focused on winning key environmental fights in cities, states, and regions around the United States. This position will work with other regional policy, advocacy, and communications teams alongside outside partners to develop and execute campaigns that recruit and engage audiences while helping to achieve our local policy objectives, and support our overall national advocacy goals.
This position will be responsible for planning and executing digital advocacy and engagement campaigns on local and regional issues. The campaigns will use a broad suite of digital tools and tactics, including email action alerts and petitions, social media content, advertising, offline advocacy, and new audience recruitment strategies that leverage a variety of communications channels with a focus on priority states where NRDC is working.
Ideal candidates should have experience working on advocacy and engagement campaigns at the local, state and/or national levels, and have strong writing skills, including writing for digital channels like email and social media. Some political or field organizing experience is a plus.
The position reports to the Regional Campaign Director and will coordinate with other regional digital campaigners and campaign staff inside and outside the Communications department, and with similar regional teams across the country. The position will also work with the NRDC Action Fund on grassroots lobbying and electoral campaigns. While NRDC is working remotely due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we will prioritize candidates who can work in our Santa Monica or San Francisco office when they re-open. Candidates must have an ability to travel when travel resumes.
NRDC is committed to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion, both in our work and in our workplace. We believe that celebrating and actively welcoming diverse voices and perspectives is essential to solving the planet's most pressing environmental problems, and we encourage applications from candidates whose identities have been historically under-represented in the environmental movement.
We are an equal opportunity employer and do not discriminate in hiring or employment race, color, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, marital status, sexual orientation, national origin, citizenship, age, disability, veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by federal, state, or local law. Pursuant to the San Francisco Fair Chance Ordinance, we will consider for employment qualified applicants with arrest and conviction records.
We offer competitive salaries, excellent benefits, and a supportive working environment. Salary is based on a nonprofit scale and is commensurate with skills and experience. For this position, the salary is $75,000 to $90,000.
Since March 2020, NRDC’s offices have been closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. You will be associated with one of our offices, but until circumstances allow us to re-open, we will continue to support with remote working arrangements.
