About you:

You are an innovative and strategic thinker who is determined to achieve change on climate policy.  You have delivered digital communications that have been demonstrated to engage your audience and inspire them to take action, and you know how communications fit within a broader theory of change. 

You are energised by working in the fast-paced world of campaigning and media engagement, and have the skills and experience to deal with the complexity of modern social change campaigning and find the right message to make change happen. 

You’re a storyteller who can use words, visuals and digital platforms to craft a narrative, and use research and evidence to choose the frame and language that will reach target audiences.

You enjoy collaborating with others, and you believe in working within the environment movement to achieve common goals. You have the confidence to back your decisions, and the wisdom to incorporate the insights of your team.


The Role 

The Climate Campaigner will craft QCC’s campaign strategies and activities, including developing messages to accelerate Queensland’s transition away from polluting coal and gas and towards 100% clean renewable energy, and to build people power to demand stronger State and Federal action to address climate change. 

You will play a lead role in developing and deploying strategies and tactics that resonate with target audiences. You will find innovative ways to support the rapid growth of campaign channels while creating new campaign assets, and making sure we reach and mobilise the most people possible to have the biggest impact.
