A WORLD WITHOUT NUCLEAR WEAPONS IS A WORLD WORTH FIGHTING FOR

This ain't your grandma’s anti-nuke campaign.

By combining media, online and grassroots initiatives with cutting-edge policy development and direct dialogue with governments, Global Zero is working to achieve the next critical steps to a world without nuclear weapons. From heads of state to high school students, we’re working at all levels to end the nuclear threat.
 
Since 2008, we've built a powerful international movement to rid the world of nuclear weapons once and for all. But to overcome the challenges ahead, we need to grow our team of talented, passionate movement-builders.
 
Changing the world takes all kinds of folks: organizers, writers, graphic designers, social media mavens, content creators, project managers, administrative junkies and fundraisers – and then some. If you're an entrepreneurial, creative thinker who's looking to make a global impact, send us your resume and letter of interest, and something that shows us your chops (a writing sample, portfolio, or concept for a freelance project) to work@globalzero.org.
 
We can’t wait to hear from you!

Field Strategist

There are no insurmountable technical barriers to achieving a world without nuclear weapons. The only barriers are political: it is a matter of the leaders of the nuclear powers acting with urgency and resolve. But political will rarely springs to life on its own. Real action on disarmament will require public pressure several orders of magnitude greater than exists today.

Over the last several years, Global Zero has built an international community of leaders and experts to champion global nuclear disarmament. This support is deeply credible and necessary, but not sufficient: generating pressure requires robust grassroots infrastructure that can shine a spotlight on the issue and mobilize the public.

This cannot be secondary. Relentless, long-range, capacity-building movement work is time-consuming, difficult and expensive. It’s also the only way to change hearts and minds, build power that lasts and win in the long run. And global nuclear disarmament is a long-run proposition.

That’s where you come in.

To succeed in the battles that will intensify on the road to zero, we’re hiring a Field Strategist based in Washington, DC who will be responsible for managing Global Zero’s public mobilization efforts in strategic countries across the globe. You'll be key to injecting the grassroots energy we need to win, and eliminate nuclear weapons once and for all.

The Field Strategist will be a master of field recruitment strategy; volunteer training, management and organizing; and will be charged with expanding Global Zero’s grassroots volunteer corps under a bold mandate for action. This position reports to the Campaign Director, manages a small but savvy international organizing team, and oversees all field mobilization efforts.

The gig

Among other things, the Field Strategist will:

  • Expand, execute, and manage volunteer leadership programs in target markets across the globe with a focus on growth and sustainability;
  • Spearhead robust grassroots power building in key states for the 2016 presidential election cycle;
  • Work with the Campaign Director to develop field and campaign strategies that support broader goals and objectives;
  • Develop a membership strategy that fosters strategic growth and engages key constituents;
  • Manage staff and volunteer organizers;
  • Recruit, train and inspire new and existing advocates through the ladder of engagement;
  • Increase the quantity of our membership and quality of our member experience;
  • Develop partnerships at the grassroots level;
  • Identify goals, track metrics, and report on results;
  • Draft campaign communications including emails, blogs, presentations, trainings, and one-pagers; and
  • Other duties as assigned.

This is not an entry-level position. This exciting and challenging position would fit a creative, entrepreneurial, metrics-driven campaigner with an expertise in bringing strange bedfellows together around a common goal. The ideal candidate will have:

  • A Bachelor's degree with 3-5 years of experience mobilizing activists;
  • Experience recruiting and mobilizing activists both on and off campus;
  • Experience developing and executing offline recruitment strategies;
  • Excellent relationship-management skills;
  • Acute political skills and a global mindset;
  • Excellent writing and oral communication skills;
  • Ability to work under pressure and with tight deadlines;
  • Ability to travel (up to 50% of the time);
  • English required, additional languages preferred; and
  • Ability to meet the physical demands of your job (including occasional early meetings, late nights, frequent travel, lifting boxes of campaign chum, etc.)

The setup

  • Competitive salary and amazing benefits;
  • Significant leadership opportunities in a fast-paced organization;
  • Flexible and occasionally intense hours, including some evenings and weekends;
  • Frequent travel; and
  • Pretty awesome happy hour compadres.
