Field Office Director
Fund for the Public Interest
About the organization
As a Field Office Director, you will run your own canvass office and work on campaigns with groups like Environment America and U.S. PIRG. You’ll recruit supporters, raise money and mobilize thousands of people to take action. Being a director requires that you work independently, exercise good judgment and work hard to meet the office’s staffing, campaign, and fieldwork goals. You’ll build the people power it takes to create positive change. You could work on issues like tackling climate change, stopping throw-away plastics from polluting our oceans, powering more of our cities and states with clean energy like wind and solar power, and more. We are hiring for immediate positions as well as positions beginning February 2021. At this time due to the pandemic, we are engaging the public and advancing these campaigns through virtual methods.
