Full-Time Paid Fellow

US PIRG – Posted by jobs@workforprogress.orgAnywhere

Job Description

Do you think the overuse of antibiotics on factory farms makes no sense? Do you agree that the most widely-used herbicide in U.S. history shouldn’t cause serious health impacts? Do you think consumers should be protected from unsafe or unscrupulous practices?

If you agree — and if you’re willing to work harder than you’ll work at most jobs to win smart solutions on real problems that affect millions of lives — consider a job as a fellow with U.S. PIRG.

What It Means To Be A Fellow

You won’t just sit behind a desk. You’ll be out in the real world — recruiting new groups to join a coalition, speaking in a church basement or town hall to win a new endorsement, organizing a news event or rally, meeting with an editorial board, or doing whatever else it takes to urge our public officials to do the right thing.

This is a two-year program, expressly designed to prepare future leaders with U.S. PIRG. We look for smarts, leadership experience, top-notch written and verbal skills, and an eagerness to learn. We value experience organizing, including building campus groups.

Pay & Benefits

The target annual compensation for this position is $25,500 in the first year. U.S. PIRG offers a competitive benefits package. We also offer an excellent training program and opportunities for advancement.

Locations & Start Dates

We’re hiring for positions in Washington, D.C., Boston and Chicago. If you’re flexible, you can apply for multiple locations. We accept applications on a rolling basis.

Tackle real problems. Implement smart solutions. Get results.
