CALPIRG is seeking a Campaign Associate to help lead our Beyond Plastic campaign.
Everyday, Californians throw away millions of single-use plastic containers, wrappers, packaging and other plastic “stuff.” The big problem with all that plastic is that it can take hundreds of years to fully degrade and the vast majority of it can’t be recycled. That means that almost every piece ever made is still out there piling up in our landfills, littering our streets, and polluting our environment.
CALPIRG’s Beyond Plastic campaign is working to eliminate the single-use plastics we’ve known for decades we can all live without.
We are seeking a Campaign Associate who will spearhead this campaign and work with our experienced team of advocates, researchers, and digital and communications experts.
Entry-level candidates are encouraged to apply; we provide training on advocacy and organizing skills, as well as oversight and on-the-ground training by an experienced advocate. Ideal candidates will have leadership experience, top-notch written and verbal skills, an eagerness to learn, and be ready for a challenge. We value organizing experience, including building campus or community groups.
Pay & Benefits
The target annual compensation for this position is $30,000-$31,500 in the first year. CALPIRG offers a competitive benefits package. We also offer an excellent training program and opportunities for advancement.
Oakland, CA or Sacramento, CA
We’re also hiring Campaign Associates to work on other campaigns in locations across the country. We accept applications on a rolling basis. The position starts August 2022.
