War on Want is a dynamic organisation working in active solidarity with grassroots social movements around the world while undertaking cutting-edge campaigns in the UK. War on Want hosts the Climate Justice Coalition staff.

The Climate Justice Coalition is a broad civil society climate that brings together NGOs, faith groups, trade unions, direct action groups, students and youth, feminist, migrant and racial justice, and grassroots and international climate justice networks that have operated as the COP26 Coalition for the last two years to coordinate activities and actions around the UN COP26 Summit that was held in Glasgow in 2021.

Harnessing the momentum and movement building from the last two years of organising together, the National Coordinator will facilitate the Coalition in the process of transitioning to the Climate Justice Coalition in the coming year that will focus on mobilising the climate justice movement around key moments, including COP27, developing our ground-breaking communications work, and learning and strategising together in our movements and beyond to help strengthen the climate justice movement as a key legacy of the Glasgow talks.

The ideal candidate will be an excellent networker, highly organised, skilled in facilitation and communication with diverse audiences, have a strong track record of working with marginalised groups and an understanding of climate justice in the wider political context, and bring experience in budget management, fundraising and reporting.

The postholder will coordinate a broad, diverse and inclusive coalition of civil society groups, working in a flexible and open way that allows for different levels of access and involvement, engaging established and new actors across the breadth of sectoral, thematic and regional spaces.

Closing date: Noon on Friday 22 July 2022.
Interview dates: Thursday 28 and Friday 29 July 2022.

The UK COP26 Coalition would particularly like to encourage applications from people of colour/black or brown people and people most impacted by climate change or impacted by other kinds of environmental, social, and economic injustice who are currently under-represented in the climate and environmental movements in the UK. The successful candidate will be selected purely on the basis of how well they fit the person specification, as judged by their application and interview. Where two or more candidates are judged to be of equal merit, priority may be given to a BME or migrant candidate as these groups are currently under-represented in the climate and environmental movements in the UK.
