Third Generation Environmentalism is hiring a
PPCA DIPLOMATIC ENGAGEMENT LEAD
The advertised position is with the Powering Past Coal Alliance (PPCA) Secretariat, hosted by E3G and will be based in one of the E3G offices in London, Brussels or Berlin. The successful candidate will use their political and diplomatic skills to develop a strategy to work with existing and prospective government members of the PPCA to drive faster progress on the transition from coal to clean energy.
The Powering Past Coal Alliance (PPCA) is a global coalition of national and sub-national governments, businesses and organisations working to advance the transition away from unabated coal power generation.
In our diplomatic work, we build momentum for a faster transition away from coal by working with existing government members and civil society partners to encourage national and subnational governments to make new commitments to accelerate their coal phase out. We also work with existing government members to advocate for progress on an accelerated coal phase out at international diplomatic events including G7, G20 and COP.
You will report directly to the PPCA Head of Secretariat and you will oversee the work and development of the Diplomatic Engagement Officer, providing coaching and guidance. You will be part of a highly dynamic, impact-driven international team of the PPCA Secretariat. You will also have an opportunity to closely collaborate with the Alliance’s co-chairs, the governments of Canada and the United Kingdom.
We are looking for a talented communicator and networker with demonstrated experience working internationally and engaging government stakeholders. You will need to be able to think creatively and build diverse coalitions to develop effective influencing strategies in countries that currently see coal power generation as a core part of their economic and energy security.
