We will begin interviewing for the positions listed below on December 3, 2019 and will review applications on a rolling basis until we find you, the best hire we could make!

Chief Administrative Officer

MEC is going through a significant restructuring, and we need an operations guru! We have a multimillion dollar budget that is growing in scope and complexity. We're looking to improve vertical integration of our finance, policy, engagement and communications functions. And we need to adopt a human resource model that will support our expansion into new fields of work. As our CAO you'll be mission-driven to create the strongest systems possible to support the movement that defends our environment and protects the public health. This is a senior level position offering a generous compensation package with a salary range of $65,000 - $91,000.

 

Communications Specialist

We've got a story to tell, and you want to author it! Our Communications Specialist helps shape MEC's message, especially in the digital world, connecting our mission to people who share our values. If your idea of a perfect night out would be getting Peggy Shepard, Tony Hsieh, and Rachel Awtrey to host a virtual happy hour for treehuggers, you might want to apply for this job. This is an entry level position offering a generous compensation package with a salary range of $30,000 - $39,000.

 

Engagement Specialist - Coalition Management

You know you're right for this job if you l-o-o-o-v-e people! MEC works through coalitions big and small, complex and simple -- and you'll help hold them together and keep them productive. You'll apply administrative acumen and build conflict resolution skills that will help the environmental movement embrace its increasingly rich diversity without fracturing. This is an entry level position offering a generous compensation package with a salary range of $30,000 - $39,000.

 

Engagement Specialist - Detroit

Hard working and entrepreneurial, our Detroit Engagement Specialist will lead the Zero Waste Detroit coalition to make the city cleaner and greener.

This is an entry level position offering a generous compensation package with a salary + bonus range of $30,000 - $52,000.

 

Policy Specialist

Rub elbows and knock heads with Lansing lawmakers as we fight for policies that combat climate change and lead Michigan to a clean energy future. If you've got a strong analytical mind and a winning personality that make you feel right at home taking in Public Service Commission hearings and hobnobbing after hours with decision-makers, pitch an application our way. This is an entry level position offering a generous compensation package with a salary range of $30,000 - $39,000.

We'd love to hear from you.
