Energy & Climate Change


About the Position 

The Climate and Energy Program Director is responsible for the overall vision and day-to-day management of RAN’s climate and energy program to keep fossil fuels in the ground and persuade corporate targets — including the world’s largest banks and insurance companies— to develop and implement comprehensive climate, environmental, and human rights policies to guide their lending and underwriting. RAN’s Climate & Energy team aims to move financial systems to address the climate crisis. This position will drive the Climate and Energy team forward to call out corporate greenwashing and inadequate government response while ensuring our work is aligned with that of our frontline and grassroots partners. RAN is committed to pushing back against corporate power, challenging bad public policy on climate & energy, and continuing to punch above our weight. 

This is a highly collaborative position, working closely with communication, digital, organizing and development departments. The ideal candidate will thrive at coordinating inter-departmental teams, managing multiple priorities in a fast-paced campaigning environment, listening to and incorporating feedback from team members and frontline partners, and have a strong understanding of racial justice and equity issues. The Climate and Energy Program Director will serve on the Leadership Team of the organization and will report to the Deputy Executive Director.

RAN is committed to doing what is necessary, not only what is considered politically feasible.
