Type of Job
Jan 20, 2022
About the job
The Endangered Species Coalition is seeking a Field Representative in the Pacific Northwest to help develop, run, and win local and national campaigns to defend our endangered species. The Pacific Northwest is known for its old growth forests and coastal ecosystems which shelter many unique and vulnerable species. The Endangered Species Coalition is focused on protecting the Chinook salmon, a critically important species, culturally, economically and ecologically, as well as the Southern Resident Orca who rely on them as their main source of food. The Coalition is also engaged in gray wolf conservation in the region.
The Pacific Northwest Field Representative will engage with ESC member groups, allied groups, the public, elected officials, the media and frontline communities on endangered species issues, while serving as a field organizer for national Endangered Species Act defense efforts.
The Pacific Northwest Field Representative will engage stakeholders in campaign activities including formulating campaign strategies, work plans and timelines, grassroots and grass-tops organizing, public education, media relations, political engagement, and fundraising.
The ideal candidate will be high-energy, strategic, proactive, self-aware, and have the ability to execute campaign strategies. Good judgement and self-motivation is a must, and a sense of humor is a plus. Knowledge of wildlife issues and politics is helpful (especially regarding Snake River Salmon, orcas, or gray wolves), as is the ability to quickly learn the intricacies of regional issues and the various players. While you need not be a policy expert, you do need to have a passion for wildlife and politics. A compelling candidate will have strong ties with Pacific Northwest communities, including some experience working with Native American tribes in the region. The Pacific Northwest Field Representative will report to the National Field Director.
This position is fully remote and may be located anywhere in the greater Seattle area.
