HEET is a nonprofit climate solutions incubator with a mission to cut carbon emissions now through systems change. Data-based and nimble, we iterate our ideas in a wide coalition to share knowledge and find the best way forward. Key to our success is a non-traditional, diverse workforce that is willing to break traditional barriers and work together for an inclusive and just world.
Research shows that structurally marginalized groups or people with non-traditional work experience apply to jobs only if they meet 100% of the qualifications. HEET encourages you to break that statistic and apply.
HEET is seeking a Communications Specialist to strategically oversee and execute communications. As HEET’s work rapidly gains national prominence, the Communications Specialist has the opportunity to drive a national clean energy campaign and define to the public a pathway that gas utilities, municipalities, workers and climate advocates are increasingly recognizing as a viable way to transition off natural gas for good.
HEET interacts closely with a broad range of audiences and stakeholders: climate advocates, utility executives, union representatives, gas workers, legislators, regulators, geothermal experts and more. Key to the Communications Specialist’s role is understanding the political and relational landscape in which HEET operates and developing communications that resonate and build trust with a wide range of audiences.
We are a small team with an adaptive organizational structure. Position descriptions are therefore approximate, not inclusive of all possible job duties, and dynamic: applicants should be comfortable and excited to try new things, learn and pitch in to support colleagues as needed. We are looking for a motivated and mature self-starter who can work both independently and as a collaborative team member dedicated to promoting HEET’s mission and committed to HEET’s values: integrity, abundance, inclusion, practicality, nimbleness, innovation and compassion.
You will work closely with all team members, including HEET’s Co-Executive Directors, board of directors and strategic partners to craft outreach materials and to plan and guide a long term strategic communications plan for the organization. Responsibilities include:
