UK Tar Sands Network is looking for a volunteer to join our small Oxford-based team. You would help us with a range of activities, including organising protests and campaign events, keeping our website and social media up to date, public education, outreach and network-building, and some day-to-day administrative tasks that help keep the show on the road.
So if you are committed to ending humanity’s dependence on dirty fossil fuels, believe in working in solidarity with frontline communities, have relevant skills and experience, and would enjoy working in an informal but hard-working atmosphere, sometimes dropping everything to rapidly respond to unfolding events on a shoe-string budget (though it’s often not as exciting as that), then please send us your CV with a covering letter detailing why you are the person we’re looking for.
Sadly, we cannot afford to pay you a proper wage (we’re working on that) but we can pay you expenses that will cover your travel and food costs, and in return you’ll get a wealth of experience in the campaigning field. We’d prefer it if you were in Oxford or London and could give us up to three days a week, but we’re open to suggestions.
If you’re interested please contact info [at] no-tar-sands.org with your CV and covering letter, by 13th February. Please be available for an interview in Oxford on 20th February.
