Charity registered in Scotland SC047206
Our charity supports young people around 18 to 35 years old. 2050 Climate Group’s vision is that by 2050, young people will be active citizens, having led and accelerated the progress to a just and sustainable society. Since we started in 2014, we have been volunteer-driven and the majority of our programme of work is delivered by a large committed group of operational volunteers with key support from the board of trustees and a small staff team.
2050 Climate Group has been working to empower Scotland’s Young Leaders to lead action on tackling our climate crisis and our work continues to evolve. In 2016 the group delivered its first major programme of work, our award-winning Young Leaders Development Programme (YLDP). In 2018, 2050 Climate Group undertook its first international project in partnership with Malawi Scotland Partnership (MaSP), the Malawi Climate Leaders Project. This is an exciting opportunity to join us as we prepare for activities in the lead up to COP26 in Glasgow later this year.
This role requires an individual experienced in delivering international development projects and partnerships. The person recruited will co-ordinate the fourth year of the Malawi Climate Leaders Project in partnership with the Malawi-based staff team, and will be responsible for leading 2050 Climate Group’s side of the project delivery in Scotland, including securing funding to continue the project. The role will require fast paced delivery of milestones and strong experience in a similar or project-based role is essential.
The role will require close working with volunteers in Scotland and Malawi, therefore occasional evening and weekend work will be required. If Covid-19 restrictions significantly ease, the role may also require management and co-ordination of country exchange visits.
The post-holder will have a unique opportunity to work with our trustees, volunteers and staff to help shape and deliver key aspects of our international work programme, including planning and co-ordinating activities in the lead up to COP26 in Glasgow later this year.
