Employment Opportunity: Director, Strategic Initiatives | Oceana

Director, Strategic Initiatives

Are you looking to make a difference?  Oceana is looking for someone to help lead our efforts to change the policies and practices around the use of plastic across the global. This is truly an effort to change the world for the better. In this position you will help lead Oceana’s global corporate campaigns to get leading companies – including Amazon and Coca Cola – to commit to reduce the use of single-use plastic and help protect the oceans from an ever-increasing tsunami of plastic pollution.

Founded in 2001, Oceana is the world’s largest nonprofit organization focused solely on restoring the resilience and abundance of the ocean. We achieve measurable change by conducting science-based campaigns with clear goals (that we seek to win with three to five years). Our campaign teams are based in Belize, Brazil, Chile, Mexico, Peru, the Philippines, the United States, Canada, Spain, Denmark, and Belgium. The Director will help to coordinate with Oceana’s local campaign teams as needed.

The ideal candidate will have strong experience in corporate campaigns and/or shareholder activism and will be familiar with how to win campaigns through the press, financial community, and consumer/grassroots outreach. She/he/they will be self-starters, able to create and manage models, write reports, understand, and negotiate with corporate executives, and someone who enjoys collaborating and working in a small team environment (and able to expand capacity through allies and consultants as needed).  Strong writing, analytical ability, and strategic creativity and thinking desired. MBA/business background combined with campaign mindset strongly preferred.
