Description

North Carolina Conservation Network is seeking candidates for the position of Organizing Fellow. This is a full-time temporary staff position running through Dec 31, 2024. We’re looking to fill multiple positions and will consider candidates living across North Carolina.

NC Conservation Network is a statewide network of approximately 75 environmental, health, and environmental justice organizations. NC Conservation Network directly advocates for equitable and sustainable solutions for our environment and public health. The Organizing Fellow will play a critical role in NC Conservation Network’s issue advocacy, public outreach, and non-partisan efforts to boost voter turnout in North Carolina.

Responsibilities

  • Mobilizing environmental voters, young voters, and voters who’ve been historically disenfranchised through non-partisan Get-Out-the-Vote programs,
  • Working with our organizing team to engage our activists on key environmental issues,
  • Recruiting new activists who will join our text/email lists through petitioning, presentations, phone calls, and events,
  • Helping to work with and support our campus fellow program, which includes students organizing on college campuses across North Carolina.

 Location: This position will include regular travel across the state. Typically, our staff all work out of our downtown Raleigh office and we are on a hybrid model of some work from the office and some work from home. We would consider candidates who are outside of the Triangle, but they must be based in NC and able to travel across the state.

Qualifications

This position is designed as an opportunity for someone with limited professional advocacy and organizing experience. Applicants should be excited about collaborating with the general public and environmental activists of all ages and backgrounds, including college students. They should have a passion for environmental/health issues and have interest in voter education. Ideal candidates will have:

  • A good understanding of North Carolina and its communities.
  • Experience with volunteering and advocacy, ideally on environmental or health issues.
  • Experience with voter education and voter mobilization.
  • Strong communication, networking, and public speaking skills.
  • An ability and passion for working with a diverse cross-section of people in North Carolina.
  • Comfort with technology and database management.

Comfort working non-traditional hours, including occasional weekends and evenings.

Salary/Benefits

This is a full-time, temporary position that will end on December 31, 2024. The annual salary range for this position is $36,000 – $40,000. Organizing Fellows will receive health care stipends of $650/month to cover costs of health, dental, and vision insurance. This position will accrue up to 12 paid vacation days and 12 paid sick days for one year of employment.

Application Instructions

While applications will be accepted on a rolling basis, it is recommended to apply ASAP. Position is open until filled. To apply, email both a resume and cover letter to peter@ncconservationnetwork.org with the subject “Attn: Organizing Fellow.”
