Global Gas and Oil Network
About the Global Gas and Oil Network:
The Global Gas and Oil Network (GGON) is a non-profit network of civil society organizations established to support global efforts to stop oil and gas expansion and catalyze a just and equitable managed decline of existing extraction in line with limiting global warming to the ambitious goal of the Paris Agreement (1.5c). Over 50 organizations globally are engaged in the Network, e.g. Greenpeace, Friends of the Earth, 350.org, Sierra Club and Stockholm Environment Institute among many others, and this number continues to grow.
GGON is supporting grassroots, national and international efforts to stop or delay new oil and gas extraction and infrastructure, campaigns to limit public and private finance of oil and gas development, enabling ambitious action from decision makers for an equitable fossil fuel phase out, and supporting legal, research and communications strategies. The Network convenes strategy meetings, supports and facilitates campaign and communications coordination, and provides research and analysis. GGON operates with a small secretariat that is guided by a strategic advisory committee.
GGON values diversity, equity, and inclusivity as central to our work and believes we are strengthened by the diversity of our staff and partners. We welcome applications from people of all cultures, backgrounds, and experiences, and strongly encourage people of colour and persons with disabilities to apply.
About the Position:
Recent events including Covid-19 and the associated impact on the oil industry, economies and livelihoods have changed public and policy debates leading to more urgent demands for communication on the issue among civil society and the wider public.

It will also provide strategic and operational advice to regional, national and frontline campaigns, and involve the responsibility for delivering some of the activities in this communications strategy, including a focus on strategic communications interventions and the development of comms products to support the network and its members.
The role will be based in the virtual GGON secretariat and work closely with the three other secretariat team members to facilitate and support GGON partners. The successful candidate will believe in the power of networks to create change and enjoy working with a wide range of stakeholders (primarily NGOs, think thanks and other communication agencies). The Senior Communications Associate will report to the Director, and be accountable to the wider network through the Communications Working Group.
