- EcoHome & Environmental Advocacy Coordinator
Deadline for Applications: August 22, 2017
Ecology North (EN) is looking to expand, and we need someone with strong environmental credentials, and a sharp pen to provide several functions to help expand our organization’s reach. This position will be tasked with helping to coordinate our EcoHome efforts, coordinate membership, and lead environmental advocacy work for Ecology North.
Ecology North is aspiring to build or retrofit a new EN office that will be perhaps the greenest building in the Canadian North! Our goals and aspirations are clear, but there is still a long road ahead of us to get there. Although the move is still a few years away, we are looking for an individual who is committed to helping us achieve our goals.
We are also looking for an individual who has knowledge and strength in membership coordination, as our goals are to expand our membership numbers and diversity with a coordinated plan.
Finally, Ecology North wishes to expand our environmental advocacy role in the North. The needs for this will vary seasonally, but will include reviewing and responding to environmental legislation, environmental assessments, developing environmental policy positions and expanding a culture and history of environmental advocacy for EN.
This position will be based in Yellowknife, NWT, and will be a full-time position that will report to the Executive Director of Ecology North. We are looking for someone who has very strong analytical and writing (in particular, proposal writing) skills, project management and organization skills, and who is good with numbers, and has a basic knowledge of building design, and a love of the environment for this challenging but rewarding position.
