Campaign Coordinator for New Jersey Clean Building Campaign
The New Jersey Conservation Foundation is requesting proposals for a consultant to serve as Campaign Coordinator supporting NJCF’s building decarbonization efforts in New Jersey, and supporting the Core Leadership team of the New Jersey Clean Building Campaign.
The consulting time frame is for June 2023 – June 2024. The retainer will range between $70,000-$85,000 for 12 months, based upon the consultant’s level of experience and skills. Consultants are expected to work 40 hours per week and should have their own vehicle as some in state travel is required.
Proposals should indicate experience working on electoral or issue campaigns (at least two cycles) with preference given to those with experience as an outreach or organizing manager. New Jersey campaign experience is strongly preferred. The consultant should have exceptional communications skills and be comfortable navigating broad coalitions. The consultant will need to provide NJCF with a valid certificate of insurance naming us as an additional insured.
Scope of work will include but is not limited to:
The Campaign Coordinator will be responsible for completing a three-year building decarbonization and natural gas phaseout strategic advocacy plan for New Jersey, with broad support from advocacy partners, to be delivered by the end of October. This Advocacy Plan will describe to potential national funders the need for multi-year funding for this work in New Jersey and is intended to lead to a three-year funding commitment from 2024-2027. If fundraising is successful, the Campaign Coordinator will play a critical role in coordinating the larger effort of the Clean Building Campaign.
Based on current funding, the Campaign Coordinator will primarily be responsible for advancing a joint legislative strategy in New Jersey through June 2024. The Campaign Coordinator will report to and closely coordinate with a core leadership team, which will include Barbara Blumenthal, New Jersey Conservation Foundation.
