Transition Network job: Initiative Support Co-ordinator


Job Advertisment - Initiative Support Co-ordinator, Transition Network

Circa £29, 250 p.a pro rata

Hours negotiable (minimum 2 days a week)

All over the world people are coming together with shared concerns about shrinking supplies of cheap energy, climate change and economic downturn. They realise that high levels of energy consumption, high carbon emissions and massive environmental impact can't go on indefinitely and they want to work in communities to build a future that is far more connected to and gentler on the Earth than the life we lead today.

Transition Network exists to inspire, encourage, connect, support and train communities as they self-organise around the transition model, creating initiatives that rebuild resilience and reduce CO2 emissions.

We are seeking to appoint an Initiative Support Coordinator who will play a key role in building relationships with Transition Initiatives, and will work with them to develop a wide range of resources to inspire and support the work they are doing.

Experienced in stakeholder engagement, you will be skilled in developing networks that link people from diverse backgrounds across geographical and other divides. You may already be involved in Transition work; you will certainly have a good understanding of environmental issues and how people react to them, and be excited by the opportunity to develop practical, creative resources that address the need of Initiatives whatever stage of the transition journey they have reached.
