Malawi Climate Leaders Project Officer

  • Part time
  • £24,000 – £29,000 pro-rata
  • Edinburgh & Malawi
  • Closing 14th August 2019

2050 Climate Group is a youth-led charity working to engage, educate, and empower young people to take action on climate change. Our dynamic organisation is run for and by a talented group of young professionals.

In 2016 the group delivered its first major programme of work, the Young Leaders Development Programme (YLDP) which has won several awards. The group continues to evolve and will focus on the aims outlined in the Strategic Plan 2019-2021. The programme of work is delivered by a large committed group of operational volunteers, currently comprising of 3 teams, with key support from the board of trustees and a small staff team.

In addition to this in 2018, 2050 undertook its first international project in partnership with Malawi Scotland Partnership (MaSP) in Malawi. This is Malawi's Climate Leaders project. The project engages young Malawians with the social, economic and environmental challenges posed by climate change impacts in their communities, such as droughts, flooding and soil degradation. Through this programme, participants develop their leadership skills and understanding of climate change impacts. This empowers them to take action in their personal and professional lives and make the world a better place through climate action.

The requirements of this job will be to support in the organisation and delivery of the second year of the Malawi Climate Leaders project alongside MaSP. This requires an individual experienced in delivering international development partnerships. This role involves coordinating the project in partnership with the Malawi-based staff team, and is responsible for managing 2050 Climate Group’s side of the project delivery in Scotland. The role will require travel to Malawi and will require close working with volunteers in Scotland and Malawi, therefore occasional evening and weekend work will be required. The role will also require management and coordination of the country exchange visits to Scotland.
