Overview

About The Role

This role will develop and execute communications strategies for two blockbuster international campaigns - Bonds and Private Equity - to shift bond financing and private equity away from fossil fuels.

Fossil fuel companies are using the bond market as a back-door route for raising large sums of money for expansion. This role works with the Senior Strategist for Bonds and partners to create and implement a communications and media strategy, which tells the story of bonds as the driving force behind coal, oil and gas expansion and leverages media pressure to stop bond financing for fossil fuel companies.

About You

You’re an experienced communications professional with a knack for telling simple, powerful stories that synthesize complex issues and cut through a crowded media landscape. You are ready to take on a challenging role that has a lot of creative and strategic latitude.  While you’re skilled at developing big picture strategy, you also enjoy the details of implementation - writing copy, engaging experts and spokespeople, and building relationships with journalists. 

Key Responsibilities

  • Determine target audiences and channels that we should prioritise to achieve our campaign goals and develop campaign frames, messaging, and talking points that are most compelling to those audiences.

  • Work with allies and partners to develop and implement shared communications strategies that challenge corporate targets. 

  • Ensure communications goals are integrated across all stages of strategic decision making and programme planning in the bonds and private equity programmes.

  • Work with communications campaigners across Sunrise to ensure that bonds and private equity-specific issues are integrated into broader messaging.
