Marketing & Communications at ClimateWorks

Global climate change is one of the greatest threats facing humanity. Despite powerful progress in recent years, the world is not yet on track to contain this threat. If we fail, we will do tremendous—perhaps irreparable—damage to ecosystems, economies, and communities around the world. If we succeed, we will not only avoid those damages, but we will also reshape the global economy in ways that will deliver many lasting benefits, including stronger economies, greater food security, less population displacement and migration, and better public health.

Sound compelling? We think so, too. The Marketing and Communications team at CWF has a key role to play in mobilizing philanthropy to help solve the climate crisis and ensure a prosperous future.  We’re a small but mighty team, working to expand ClimateWorks’ communication, outreach, and engagement to funders, partners, and grantees across the climate philanthropy ecosystem. Building off of the communications foundation in place, we’re introducing new programs and approaches to increase our impact and expand the awareness of ClimateWorks in the industry.

We are seeking a creative thinker who will bring communications expertise, intellectual curiosity, energy and some fun to helping teams across ClimateWorks launch and grow their initiatives in alignment with ClimateWorks goals and brand. Our ideal candidate will be an effective communicator who has some experience with product marketing, campaign management, content development, and social media and is looking to grow his/her experience in a collaborative environment that is making a real difference in the world, every day.
