Driven by a passion to solve the climate crisis, The Sunrise Project is a team of experienced change-makers, researchers and communications professionals with a mission to scale social movements to drive the global transition beyond fossil fuels. With programs and staff in Australia, Europe, and the US, we have developed a unique model of grantmaking and campaigning that supports networks of organizations to drive powerful change towards our mission.
We have a dynamic and nimble organizational culture and we’re serious about supporting our people to thrive. We’re committed to building justice and equity into our organization as well as through our work in the world. We move fast and are growing rapidly as we lean into the urgency of the climate challenge.
You’re a skilled campaigner and creative thinker with a strong track record of making change happen. You have strong strategic instincts and an understanding of how power works in the world and want to shift the role of corporate power in our society. You have a demonstrated ability to lead others, including managing new partnerships, networks, and campaign teams. You understand corporate campaigning and are passionate about shifting the role of financial markets to stop driving climate change. You can work independently and juggle multiple concurrent projects, and also work well collaboratively in teams, centering equity and justice in your approach to leadership and to campaigning more generally. You’ve got exceptional networking and interpersonal communication skills and are just as comfortable working with finance industry professionals as with grassroots climate activists.
We’re a growing team working on a successful and exciting network campaign to pressure some of largest U.S. financial institutions to stop fueling the climate crisis. We work in collaborative teams and in close partnership with a diverse set of partners and allies across the US and the rest of the world. We’re looking for an experienced campaigner to help manage and grow our existing campaign, while contributing new insights on strategy, tactical ideas, and networks of potential new partners.
