Description

Canvass Office Director

We’re hiring Canvass Office Directors to work on some of the most important problems of our time – tackling climate change, eliminating plastic waste that is polluting our oceans, ensuring we have clean air to breathe, clean water to drink, and more. We are hiring for immediate positions as well as positions starting throughout the year.

As a Canvass Office Director, you and the canvass staff you hire and train will have an important impact on these issues through face-to-face conversations with people on their doorsteps. We build the people power it takes to overcome powerful opposition standing in the way of solutions – you’ll fundraise, mobilize people to get involved, and support some of the country’s leading non-profit groups, including Environment America and PIRG. Being a Canvass Office Director requires that you work independently, exercise good judgment and work hard to meet your office’s staffing, campaign and fieldwork goals. 

Apply to work with us if you want to:

  • Educate and engage the public on campaigns like tackling climate change and moving beyond single-use plastics
  • Build support and fundraise for leading non-profit groups, including Environment America and PIRG
  • Hire, train and manage your own team
  • Work at the most effective citizen outreach operation in the country: We’ve raised over $700 million, run hundreds of campaigns in all 50 states, and educated and mobilized millions of people

Qualifications

We are looking for candidates who have leadership experience, excellent communication skills, and who want to work hard to make lasting, positive change on important issues.

Training

We have an excellent training program, which starts with working in an existing canvass office and getting hands-on training. Directors may also receive classroom-style training on social change concepts and skills.

Throughout the year, new and experienced canvass directors may participate in advanced trainings on staff management, canvassing, campaign strategy, and other skills.

Locations

We work on campaigns and in locations that we think will make the biggest difference. We are looking for canvass directors who are ready to go where the environment needs them and wherever they can make the biggest impact. They could work on campaigns almost anywhere in the country, and while location preferences are considered for placements, we require all directors to be geographically flexible. Right now we are running campaigns in Massachusetts; Washington, DC; and Oregon, and are prioritizing new campaigns in Illinois, Minnesota, Colorado, New Mexico, and California. 

Pay and Benefits

The target annual compensation for this position is $35,750-$48,000, depending on location. The Fund offers an excellent benefits package. Our benefits package includes medical, dental, and vision insurance for employees and dependents, paid sick time (60-80 hours/year depending on location), accrued paid vacation time (accruing 10 days over year 1, 15 days over year 2, and 20 days over year 3 and thereafter), our commuter benefit program, a 401(k) plan with employer match, parental leave, long term disability insurance, and may include needs-based student loan assistance. We also offer an excellent training program and opportunities for advancement.
