Description

PROMOTING RESPONSIBLE HYDROGEN DEVELOPMENT IN MICHIGAN – Independent Contractor Opportunity (40hrs/week, 12 months)

PROJECT EXPECTATIONS:

This is a long-term independent contractor (1099) opportunity to work with Third Way’s Climate & Energy Program. This role requires a self-starter and an independent professional who has a deep understanding of Michigan and its social and political systems. Knowledge of local/state government or energy policy is helpful, but not required.

The role is based in Michigan and requires regular travel across a 3-4 county area that includes Detroit and Flint. This role also requires the contractor to manage this project and utilize their own tools and equipment to complete project.

 The Community Outreach Manager will work with the Third Way team to help us learn from and engage with communities in Michigan that will directly be impacted by potential hydrogen projects. We are seeking someone who will:

  • Identify and build relationships with key stakeholders who could take an interest in clean hydrogen projects, including local NGOs, environmental justice groups, as well as local government officials and project developers.
  • Help coordinate focus groups and listening sessions, as well as educational workshops that give community members access to scientific and technical experts. 
  • Help identify common questions, concerns, and opportunities raised by communities that should be examined and addressed by technical experts or project developers.

BACKGROUND AND QUALIFICATIONS:

Must have at least 5 years’ experience in campaigning, community organizing, government affairs, or public affairs. Successful candidates will have a proven ability to build relationships with community leaders, design outreach strategies, and oversee a field organizing operation.   

CONTRACT LENGTH AND REMUNERATION:

The expected commitment and length of the full-time contract will be 40 hours/week for a duration of approximately 10 months, running from July 2024 – May 2025.

COMPENSATION:

Pay will be $7400 - $8300/month, depending on experience.
