The Leap

The Leap (https://theleap.org/) advances a radically hopeful vision for addressing climate change by transitioning to a more just world, while building movement power and popular support to transform that vision into a lived reality.

The Leap was founded by Naomi Klein and Avi Lewis in 2016 to advance the principles of The Leap Manifesto, a predecessor to today’s Green New Deal.  While most of our staff and programming are historically rooted in Canada, since 2018 we’ve been pushing for the development and implementation of a Green New Deal in Canada, the U.S. and around the world.

About the Job

The Communications Director leads the development of The Leap’s communications strategy and its execution across all digital and traditional media platforms. This role reports to The Leap’s Executive Director and is a key senior member of our nine-person team spread across Canada and the US. The successful candidate will combine extensive experience in digital communications, campaigning and traditional media with a passion for climate justice, and the ways in which culture and storytelling can support revolutionary outcomes.

Director of Emergence / Perspectiva

Deadline: Any time on September 30 2020.

We’re looking for a Director of Emergence who understands that emergence cannot be directed. The job entails being a senior editor for the website, a leading force within an international network, and a primary fundraiser for the Emerge project, which is a distinctive movement-in-the-making as a response to a historical moment of a civilisation in crisis.

This role is a great opportunity for the right candidate to carve out their own role and build financial viability for their vision of a distinctive project.

We are offering a full-time contract initially limited to one year, but we will support the candidate on fundraising processes to help ensure their contract is renewed and extended. Part-time applicants and job sharers are welcome to apply and flexible working schedules are expected and welcome.

Salary: 45,000€ (gross) per annum, or above for exceptional candidates. There is scope to increase the salary level in year two and beyond through successful fundraising.

Location: The Emerge project currently has a European focus and for strategic and operational reasons we would like the candidate to be based in Berlin if possible. However, finding the right person for this exciting and exacting role is of paramount importance, and we are also hoping to build our presence in other European cities and beyond, so applicants are encouraged to apply regardless of their geographic location.
