About the CEL Climate Lab
The CEL Climate Lab was formed in 2011 to create hard-hitting, tech-savvy organizing and communications projects that build the cultural and political will for climate action in the United States. We employ a variety of strategies including issue-based organizing, constituency-based organizing, digital media production, and technology innovation. We believe deeply in partnerships and work closely with a host of other organizations to develop campaigns. Our work includes convincing more than 20 corporations to drop the Heartland Institute, the election-focused Climate Silence campaign, a new project focused on mobilizing parents, and media production to support the anti-fracking movement.
About the Climate Disaster Response Fund
The Climate Disaster Response Fund (name may change during a branding process) is a new, collaborative fundraising effort that would bring together multiple organizations to raise money for the victims of climate-fueled extreme weather, and then use the distribution of those funds to create media stories that connect extreme weather to climate change. The fund will not provide direct relief, but will instead funnel resources to community-based relief efforts through a brand that connects the relief to the source of the disaster: human-induced climate change.
We Are Looking For
The CEL Climate Lab is hiring a Project Director to head up all aspects of the Climate Disaster Response Fund (CDRF). The Project Director will play the lead role in implementing the fund, recruiting and coordinating with partners, managing additional staff and consultants, and evaluating the fund's impact.
Salary and Benefits
Salary will be determined by experience and qualifications. Competitive benefits package includes generous vacation, full health, dental, vision and flex benefits, ongoing training opportunities, and unlimited Yerba Mate in our Berkeley office.
This is a senior management position that will report to the Director of the CEL Climate Lab.
This position is located in CEL’s Berkeley office. Exceptions may be made for candidates with a demonstrated ability to work effectively in remote situations.
