CAMPAIGNER JOBS

Position: Campaigner/ Senior Campaigner
Employer: Change.org
Type: social enterprise, certified B corporation 
Location: Victoria, Toronto or Montreal / flexible (see below)

With more than 250 million people using Change.org, we are the world’s largest technology platform for social change. Our team spans 18 countries and empowers hundreds of millions of people to use their voice to win the change they want to see. Nearly every hour, a petition on Change.org achieves victory.

In Canada, our community of over 7 million people have taken action on the platform. Canadians start campaigns on Change.org every day and have real impact — whether it’s convincing Starbucks to invest in sustainable cups, banning grizzly bear trophy hunting in British Columbia or saving a local family farm from development in Newfoundland.

We're looking for a talented campaigner to elevate the heroes that start these campaigns and help them mobilize the people power to win.

About the role

In this role, you’ll make a huge impact as you enable thousands of citizens to start and win their own campaigns for social change.

You’ll join our growing North American team to build the support systems and tools that put power in the hands of everyday people to create the change they want to see in the world.

You could spend one day helping students create better anti-bullying policies in their province, and the next helping a coastal resident battling toxic pollution in our oceans.

As a Campaigner, you will:

If you are hired as a Senior Campaigner, you will additionally be responsible for coaching other members of the team, and helping coordinate across the complexity of supporting multiple campaigns at various stages of development. You will also create engaging content for our membership program, contributing to its growth.

  • Design and implement creative campaign and communication strategies with strong theories of change to elevate citizen-led campaigns;
  • Identify compelling petitions started on Change.org in Canada, and work with petition starters to optimize their petition, implement smart tactics, and amplify these petitions to reach millions of potential supporters on Change.org and keep the pressure up ‘til victory;
  • Be on top of compelling issues and news stories to identify good opportunities for impactful campaigns and find individual heroes to lead these campaigns;
  • Work with a small, close knit team in Canada to support petition starters achieve impact -- you’ll provide training and strategic advice to develop a comprehensive campaign strategy, media tactics, compelling content, email blasts, creative petition deliveries, and more, as you help people move their campaign towards victory and ultimately win.
  • Build, maintain and expand relationships with organizations, activists, community members and politicians in key issue areas to facilitate the use of our platform for social change;
  • Build, maintain and expand relationships with journalists and media outlets to increase our impact;
  • Collaborate with a global team of campaigners to identify opportunities for creating effective grassroots campaigns that win measurable social change around the world and build global communities of learning with shared wisdom and experience on campaigning best practices.

You’re an ideal fit for this role if you have:

  • Experience campaigning for social impact (2 - 4 years experience for a Campaigner; 4 - 6 years for Senior Campaigner);
  • A deep commitment to our mission of empowering people everywhere to win campaigns on the critical issues of our times;
  • Strong, fast writing skills and a talent for storytelling that conveys the urgency, emotional stakes, and a theory of change for how we can win;
  • A hunger for impact: you relentlessly pursue decision makers, media coverage, more supporters- whatever it takes;
  • Strong sense of fun, imagination, and a willingness to take risks, fail, learn and adapt.

As a bonus, you might also have:

  • Experience mobilizing people to take action, connecting online and on the ground actions;
  • Talent in creative community management to engage large audiences with campaigns;
  • A natural “relationship builder” and talented at connecting people and processes;
  • Relationships with communities that have faced disadvantage, discrimination or marginalization;
  • Experience in capacity building to empower strong change makers;
  • An ability to spot 'cultural zeitgeist' moments and to know when a trend or news story has the capability of breaking out and becoming a dominant national conversation;
  • A strong grasp of politics, the political process, and current social change issues in Canada;
  • Strong French written and spoken skills, and the ability to work in a bilingual campaigning and working environment.

Talent, enthusiasm, and leadership matter more to us than ticking boxes. If even one or two of the criteria on our wishlist speak to you and you’re excited about this role, we want to hear from you.

This is a full-time opportunity. We prefer candidates in or willing to move to Victoria, Toronto or Montreal but we're open to other locations in Canada for the right candidate.

The Salary for a campaigner in Victoria is $58,000. For significantly more experienced candidates (approximately 4-6 years experience) we would consider offering a more senior role, with additional responsibilities. The salary for a Senior Campaigner in Victoria is $ 70,000.

Change.org is global company, and salaries are adjusted for cost of living in each city. For example, a salary of $58,000 CAD in Victoria would be $61,500 USD in NYC or $58,000 USD in Washington DC..

We are a social enterprise and a certified B corporation with generous benefits including unlimited paid vacation and paid family leave. We enjoy our work, and working with each other.

We’re committed to building an inclusive team that is as diverse as the communities we serve. We strongly encourage people of different backgrounds, cultures, genders, experiences, abilities and perspectives to apply.

Applications close April 8, and we encourage you to apply early.

We are working for a world where no one is powerless, and where creating change is a part of everyday life. Join us.
