Climate and Health Campaign Manager
We are seeking a dynamic, experienced campaign manager to drive the pilot of a major public campaign on climate and health.
Led by a coalition of leading health organisations, and coordinated by Doctors for the Environment Australia, the multi-year campaign will build broad community awareness of the links between climate change and health, the many health benefits of a more stable climate, and the physical and mental health benefits of taking action on climate.
It will engage Australians to make informed decisions and take positive actions on climate change to protect their health.
You have previously delivered impactful persuasive or advocacy campaigns with a significant digital component, and are passionate about mobilising people and creating change. You are excited by the idea of communicating messages about climate change and health, and by the opportunity to reach new audiences and increase their engagement on climate change.
You are highly motivated, enthusiastic and organised with exceptional communication skills.
You show initiative and take responsibility for leading your work, but also coordinate well with others.
You believe in the power of coalitions to make more of an impact than any one organisation on its own, and you know how to build consensus across a range of stakeholders.
You have a strategic mind that can open new ways of doing things and influencing behaviour change.
