The role will involve recruiting and mobilising a diverse group of volunteers to work with a range of stakeholders including government, politicians, civil society and other sectors to repurpose the education system in Northern Ireland for the climate emergency. This 4-month role would make an excellent professional development opportunity for a student or young person aged 14+ interested in climate justice and campaigning. We will support the successful candidate to manage their responsibilities to minimise impact on their education, and their wellbeing will be prioritised. We're not expecting applicants to know everything from day one, and mentoring, training and development opportunities will be provided within the role. Before applying please carefully consider if you have time to take on the role without it negatively impacting your education or wellbeing.  If you aren't in a position to take on a paid role we'd encourage you to consider joining our volunteer team!

Teach the Future and SOS-UK values climate justice and diversity in ability, race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, class and other protected characteristics. We are especially keen to encourage applications from people currently under-represented in the environment movement. We acknowledge that the environmental sector is the second least diverse sector in the UK and currently experiences, needs and priorities of marginalised groups are often left out of responses to the climate emergency, this is something we are keen to address. Please note, successful applicants over 18 will be asked to have an AccessNI enhanced check.
