Strategic Communications Associate, Electric Vehicles (EVs)

About the European Climate Foundation

The European Climate Foundation (ECF) was founded in 2008 as a major philanthropic initiative to help tackle climate change by fostering the development of a low-carbon society at the national, European and global level.

We support over 350 partner organisations to carry out activities that contribute to the public debate on climate action, drive urgent and ambitious policy in support of the objectives of the Paris Agreement and help deliver a socially responsible transition to a net-zero emissions economy and sustainable society in Europe and around the world.

As towns, cities and countries around the world declare climate emergencies, seas rise, forests burn, glaciers melt, increasing numbers of people take to the streets demanding urgent action and our societies begin to wake up to what the science has been saying for many years, there has never been a more important time to be working on climate change.

About the role

The ECF’s Strategic Communications Team is currently accepting applications for the role of Strategic Communications Associate, Electric Vehicles (EVs).

Working as part of an international team of expert communicators, the successful candidate will provide strategic communications capacity to a wide network of partners, enabling them to run impactful communications campaigns, raise awareness around priority issues and create more space for action on the climate and wider environmental impacts of fossil fuelled cars.

This person will report to the Strategic Communications Senior Associate, Transport.

  • Tracking political, public and media debates around the auto sector, climate change and its other environmental impacts, and developing communications strategies to influence these debates

  • Identifying opportunities for set piece, mainstream media interventions that make the impact of car emissions more visible and coordinating global outreach on these events via an international network of expert communicators

  • Building a wide network of partners, from civil society to industry, politics, celebrities, academia and beyond, and working with these partners to create or engage them in media opportunities

  • Developing / maintaining strong relationships with key correspondents and editors in mainstream and specialist media (auto sector, industry, transport, tech, EV-focused)

  • Collaborating closely with colleagues in key auto-manufacturing countries to ensure the team’s narrative-building efforts support key political strategies and vice versa

  • A strong understanding of the influences on and processes and dynamics of policy-making; insights into the workings of the EU a plus

  • A strategic thinker with proven ability to develop and implement robust communications plans

  • Good networking skills among a diverse range of partners

  • Existing relationships with key environmental, transport, auto sector correspondents highly desirable (alternatively the proven ability to develop these swiftly)

  • Strong vision, creativity, service orientation and the confidence to bring others along are key to this role

  • An independent self-starter able to work on his/her own and as part of a remote team

  • Relevant political, industry, trade press or auto sector PR background a plus
