Location: Flexible location within Europe, Ideally Brussels, Belgium
Salary: Negotiable based on experience
Did you know that Transport & Environment (T&E) has shaped some of Europe’s most important environmental laws? In recent years, T&E got the EU to set the world's most ambitious CO2 standards for cars and trucks but also helped uncover the dieselgate scandal. We secured a global ban on dirty shipping fuels and the creation of the world's biggest carbon market for aviation - just to name a few. Are you interested in standing alongside T&E colleagues, campaigning with us as we step into the world of corporate travel? We’re looking to hire an experienced campaigner to lead our work targeting a reduction in corporate travel post-Covid.
Established in 1990, T&E is the European Federation of environmental NGOs working on sustainable transport. T&E’s vision is a zero-emission mobility system that is affordable and has minimal impacts on our health, climate and environment. Credibility is a key asset. A politically independent non-profit, T&E combines the power of robust, science-based evidence and a deep understanding of transport with memorable communications and impactful advocacy.
Staff in Brussels, Rome, Madrid, Berlin, Warsaw, Paris and London collaborate with 62 national member and supporter organisations in 25 countries across Europe. All together members and supporters represent more than 3.5 million people. As an organisation we are committed to the professional development of our colleagues and invest in training from their first day with the organisation.
The aim of this work is to implement our strategy to mobilise employers and campaigners in efforts to reduce the level of corporate travel, and therefore the resulting emissions, post-Covid. It is to “lock in” much of the reduction in flying which occurred during this period. It is part of T&E’s wider programme to reduce emissions from aviation, which remains the most carbon intensive mode of transport.
T&E offers the chance to help shape policies with huge implications for democracy, people and the environment in Europe and across the globe as well as a competitive salary with a substantial package of benefits. The role offers flexibility of location but would benefit from being Brussels located. Flexible working hours can also be discussed.
