Position: Clean Transportation Manager
Organization: Clean Foundation
Location: Dartmouth, Halifax, Nova Scotia

Hours: Full-time (35 hours / week)
Wage: Commensurate with relevant experience and education
Status: Term through to March 31st, 2021, with possibility to renew

The Opportunity:

The goal of Clean Foundation’s Clean Transportation team is to support Nova Scotia’s efforts to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 by developing and delivering programming to support the transition from conventional fossil fuel-powered modes of transportation. This switch has the added benefits of reducing particulate and noise pollution and lowering the lifetime cost of vehicle ownership. Through a combination of building partnerships, designing, implementing and evaluating programs, and contributing meaningfully to the public dialogue around low carbon transportation, the Clean Transportation Manager will support the increased uptake of low carbon transportation alternatives in Nova Scotia.

This role is best suited to a dynamic and impact-driven project manager who thrives in a collaborative work environment. This role requires someone who is equally comfortable with the technical and policy elements of electric vehicles (“EVs”) and low-carbon transportation and who’s equally at home thinking strategically as well as keeping a solid handle on the details. Stakeholder relationship-building, technical knowledge of EVs and other low-carbon modes of transportation, strategic planning, organization, and project management skills will be regularly flexed. The Clean Transportation Manager will often be the public face of the department and so must be professional, trustworthy, and knowledgeable.

The successful candidate will be able to balance multiple tasks and provide timely strategic advice while delivering quality work under tight timelines. Additional hours, or time outside of normal work hours, may be required to meet operational requirements at specific times of the year.

What We Offer:

For over three decades, Clean has been one of Nova Scotia’s leading environmental charities. Working with us will put you at the forefront of critical sustainability issues like climate change mitigation and adaptation, protection of critical ecosystems, environmental education and driving the growth of the clean economy workforce of tomorrow and allow you the chance to shape the future of our programming.

We offer flexible work hours, competitive wages, employee health benefits and the option for some remote work.

Key Areas of Responsibility:

The Clean Transportation Manager will be responsible for overseeing the pillar program for the department. Next Ride is an EV engagement and education campaign that provides Nova Scotians with the opportunity to experience EVs first-hand by going on guided test drives with our dedicated EV Engagement Specialists. The Clean Transportation Manager will also be responsible for identifying opportunities for future program growth and development and working with the Department Director and Clean’s Program Development Manager to secure funding.

Particular tasks include:

  • Supervision of department staff;
  • Oversight of department budgets and work plans;
  • Research and keeping abreast of new developments in the technical and policy realms;
  • building and maintaining a network of allied stakeholders throughout Atlantic Canada;
  • in collaboration with Clean’s External Relations staff, contributing to the ongoing dialogue about low carbon transportation alternatives through social media posts, podcasts, op-eds, reports, media interviews, etc.; and
  • other general administrative duties, as required.


  • Experience and in low carbon transportation, environmental management, environmental science, engineering, or a related field.
  • Experience managing projects.
  • Experience designing, implementing and evaluating public education campaigns.
  • Experience leading or supporting project funding proposal development.
  • Excellent presentation and communication skills – written and verbal.
