The UN climate talks (COP26) will take place in Glasgow from 9-20 November 2020. The UK COP26 Coalition is a broad UK-wide coalition through which civil society will plan together, share resources and learning, and organise a mass mobilisation and Peoples' counter-summit during the talks. It aims to support the transformation of the climate movement in the UK, to a stronger, more climate-justice centred movement long after COP26 is over.

We are recruiting two Co-Cordinators, one based in Glasgow, one based in London to coordinate a broad, diverse and inclusive coalition of civil society groups, working in a flexible and open way that allows for different levels of access and involvement, engaging established and new actors across the breadth of sectoral, thematic and regional spaces.

The successful applicants will need to be excellent networkers, highly organised, skilled in facilitation and communication with a wide range of audiences, have a strong track record of working with marginalised groups and an understanding of the wider political context around the climate summit.

We would particularly like to encourage applications from people of colour / black or brown people and people most impacted by climate change or impacted by other kinds of environmental, social, and economic injustice who are currently under-represented in the climate and environmental movements in the UK.

This is one of two Coalition Coordinator posts being recruited at the same time. The other post will be based in London. Expectation of strong coordination and collaboration between two posts

We are open to secondments.

Reporting to: Head of Campaigns, Friends of the Earth Scotland on behalf of the UK COP26 Coalition.
