The Life After Coal campaign is hiring!

04 February 2021 at 2:13 pm

The Life After Coal/Impilo Ngaphandle Kwamalahle campaign is a well-established joint campaign by Earthlife AfricagroundWork, and the Centre for Environmental Rights. We aim to discourage the development of new coal-fired power stations and mines; reduce emissions from existing coal infrastructure and encourage a coal phase-out; and enable a just transition to sustainable energy systems for the people.

The campaign is growing and seeks to engage two individuals, initially on a consultancy basis, starting as soon as possible. We would prefer applicants based in Gauteng, but other locations will be considered as long as the candidate is also willing to travel, subject to COVID constraints.

  1. A Campaign Coordinator: The Coordinator will be responsible for Coordinating and leading LAC’s strategic advocacy and communication towards realising the campaign’s strategic objectives, and monitoring the landscape and recommend opportunities for promoting campaign objectives. This position is for a dynamic and highly organised individual who has a passion for climate justice and a just transition, and a good understanding of energy policy, project coordination and strategic campaigning.
  2. A Communications Coordinator: This position is for an experienced, dynamic and passionate communications professional that can provide strategic and creative communications leadership and advice to the campaign, to conceptualise and oversee the launch and roll-out of communications campaigns, to direct media relations for key media events, and generally to manage, protect, and nurture the Life After Coal campaign’s public profile.

Both positions are consultancies for 12 months, with the possibility of extending the consultancy beyond that period. Experience in the NGO sector is not a requirement.

The Life After Coal campaign is committed to diversity, inclusion and transformation and strives to reflect South Africa’s racial, cultural, sex and gender diversity within its campaign staff. Candidates from historically disadvantaged or marginalised groups are strongly encouraged to apply for this post, and will be preferred.
