Currently open positions


FIELD ORGANIZER FOR OHIO AND PENNSYLVANIA

Earthworks is a non-profit organization dedicated to working with communities to reduce the social, economic, and environmental problems caused by mining and energy development in the U.S. and worldwide. We fulfill our mission by supporting communities and grassroots groups; exposing and publicizing the impacts of the mining and oil and gas industries; advocating for stronger government policies and regulations; and working to improve corporate practices and accountability. (For more information, see http://www.earthworksaction.org) 

Earthworks is seeking a full time Field Organizer for Ohio and Pennsylvania to help address the health and climate impacts of natural gas development. This position is part of our Community Empowerment Project (CEP), which documents pollution and engages residents in taking action to reduce it. 

CEP advances strong federal and state regulations and policies and their enforcement to limit emissions of methane and health-harming pollutants created by the oil and gas industry. Progress in Ohio and Pennsylvania is critical to stemming harm from the rapid expansion of gas processing facilities using Utica and Marcellus Shale gas. The Ohio and Pennsylvania field organizer will help expand CEP and engage in the larger context of oil and gas industry accountability within the states.

LOCATION: Location within the region is flexible. The Field Organizer will work from a home office and travel frequently throughout eastern Ohio and western Pennsylvania. 

SCOPE OF DUTIES:

Earthworks is a small, collaborative organization, and therefore all staff may be required as needed to provide assistance on organization-wide projects outside of their area of focus. This position requires participation in program and organizational activities, including regularly scheduled meetings with colleagues, conference calls and meetings with partner organizations, and Earthworks’ in-person program and strategic planning meetings.

QUALIFICATIONS: Strong interest in climate change and health issues. Experience in community organizing and engagement. Desire to understand and advocate for environmental policies and regulations. Ability to collaborate with people with a range of backgrounds and views and to participate in coalitions. 

Excellent research, writing, and oral communication skills are required. Technical understanding of the social and environmental impacts of energy development is a plus. Flexibility and willingness to travel are necessary. Must be a self-starter and enjoy working both independently and under direction as part of a project team.

HOW TO APPLY

To apply, please send a cover letter, resume, and short writing sample by September 5th to: ohpajob@earthworksaction.org.

BENEFITS

Earthworks is an equal opportunity employer. We offer a mission and employee-focused work environment and competitive compensation including a generous benefits package. Diversity is highly valued. The Field Organizer reports to the CEP Manager and collaborates with colleagues nationwide.
