Task: RePlanet wants to stop the British government subsidising animal agriculture. Outline three actions you would take as a campaigner in pursuit of this.
JOB POST SUMMARY
This is an unique opportunity to shape the UK strategy and campaigns of a newly launched pan-European environmental NGO.
RePlanet (www.replanet.ngo) has a radical plan to end the trifecta crises of global heating, biodiversity collapse and animal exploitation. Our vision is to see 50%+ of Europe rewilded, animal agriculture ended, our climate restored and poverty eradicated. We're cool with cultivated meat, nuclear and GMOs - we believe we need every tool in the box to survive the Anthropocene.
As one of two part-time campaign managers in the UK you will contribute to launching a new UK node of RePlanet and will manage its campaigning efforts in either energy or agriculture.
As a newly launched organisation we're looking for a highly-skilled all rounder prepared to take risks and be highly entrepreneurial in designing and implementing creative campaigns. Most importantly we're looking for someone with a vocational passion to save our planet before it's too late and an unflinching commitment to follow the science, even if it involves taking controversial positions.
You will be someone with significant experience in campaigning and/or grassroots activism. You'll have a badass track record of getting campaigns into the mainstream press, getting the attention of politicians, using social media as a campaign tool and organising street level protests to affect change. Overall you'll have the creativity and confidence to experiment with new tactics that can achieve the change we want to see.
You'll be a brilliant communicator, confident to speak on behalf of the organisation as a spokesperson and to stand up in front of a room full of people to recruit new followers to our movement. You'll be well read in climate, environmentalism and politics and have a special interest in either agriculture or energy.
The job is to help launch a new UK node of RePlanet and then manage one of its two core campaigns in either energy or agriculture whilst also growing our supporter base.
You'll meet regularly with RePlanet's European team, sharing learnings and resources with campaigners in 8 different European countries whilst also occasionally pitching in to help RePlanet's EU wide campaign objectives in Brussels. Your role may include some, or all, of the following:
Direct lobbying of decision makers
Media advocacy (writing op eds / pitching stories to journalists about our campaigns)
Organising street level protests and stunts
Commissioning tactical opinion polling
Working with RePlanet's research team to create and disseminate tactical pieces of research
Working with RePlanet's video production team to create and disseminate unique social media content
Managing our list building activists as we seek to build our mailing list and social media following
Engaging volunteers who want to support the movement
RePlanet has a footing in 13 different European nations, a political office in Brussels and an international secretariat that manages the network. Growing out of a Europe-wide network of 150+ 'eco-progressive' volunteers, RePlanet is a bold new venture with a unique take on today's pressing environmental issues.
